Pranayama - What it is, and how to practice with Jim Tarran
Costs £28: £25 con : £22 Vajrasati members
April 17th with Khadine Morcom - Embracing Prescence
Yoga practice can often be sold as a commodity as something we can obtain by working towards or aiming for a particular achievement (like that super impressive bendy or advanced asana (yoga posture) or even a changed stated of mind. However, this completely negates what yoga can teach us - it is all available to us here now in this very moment (even as you read this!) and not at some future point in time. We will explore the first two limbs of yoga of yama and niyama and how the application of these limbs in our yoga practice can bring us into the heart of full awareness right now.
As always the workshop will involve various yoga practices including asana (posture), Dhyana (meditation), mantra (chanting), yoga nidra (yogic sleep - A practice of deep relaxation resting in pure consciousness). These workshops are a great way to go deeper into our yoga practice and provide an opportunity for a deep letting go of tension and stress. Themes to be announced!
Cost is £25 to regular students or anyone who likes this page or follows me on twitter (£22 Vajrasati members). I can only reserve you a place with a £5 deposit as spaces are limited and these workshops are popular and often there is a waiting list. Contact me to reserve a place.
Those of you who are yoga teachers and registered with Yoga Alliance UK are entitled to count any workshop with me towards your CPD.
