Workshops

Mantra Yoga

Sat 31st Mar 2018

In the modern self obsessed world of physical yoga a principal branch of the yoga tradition, that of MANTRA yoga is shamefully sidelined. The practice of mantra leads to wisdom, jnana. By the recitation of these matrices of sanskrit one can access the magic of mantra. The sadhana should be guided toward its main text : Mantra Yoga Samhita and its 16 limbs of Mantra yoga. The workshop includes asana, dhyana and mantra from aum to neti neti!!

Back to Basics

Sat 14th Apr 2018

If vinyasa hatha yoga is like climbing a ladder then the first rungs are surya namaskar A and B and all their components. Then one starts the climb up and up one step at a time!! However, modern postural yogis are in a hurry to climb up and in doing so miss out steps or even fall!! It is therefore imperative to make sure that one progresses gradually and correctly. For all levels, this workshop brings the yogini back to basics which we should all do so that the foundations are always strong and stable.

Get Your Head Out of Your Asana

Sat 21st Apr 2018

It is made clear in Yogashastras that this concept of IGNORANCE or NOT KNOWING has a distinct and clear relationship with many aspects of yoga practice and subsequently the practitioners life; philosophical, political and practical. Join for a heady mix of thought, movement, meditation and breath. "avidya ksetram uttaresam prasupta--tanu- vicchinnodaranam" II.4 AVIDYA, which sage Patanjali identifies, is the principle obstacle , the breeding ground of other obstacles (klesas)to achieving yoga.

MAHABHUTA THE ELEMENT OF FIRE

Sun 20th May 2018

Hot yoga demands the practitionet generates heat to increase the suppleness of the body and mind.
With the room as warm as an indian morning the asanas create agni fire in the solar plexus which increases strength and flexibility.
Forward bends are the basis of activating this fire of yogasana. The bhuta( element) associated with manipura bhanda and chakra
is agni ! FIRE in the belly!!
