Practical solutions to modern challenges inspired by ancient Yoga philosophy
This is a opportunity…
… to explore Yoga in greater depth;
… to question, discuss and understand more about Yoga;
… to connect with fellow students; and
… to find new inspiration for your Yoga practice.
If you have practised Yoga for some time, the hope is to bring new inspiration and understanding to refresh your practice. Some knowledge and experience of Yoga is assumed and so at least six weeks of regular Yoga class attendance would be preferable to enable you to benefit.
A theme from Yoga philosophy assists us to consider and refine our practice of a particular posture, breathing or meditation technique. The structure is relatively informal, starting with a short presentation and discussion. We then share a practice together. As always, modifications and alternatives are offered where necessary.
Sessions have started online but may include a ‘mixed economy’ of real and virtual sessions, depending on availability and accessibility.
We meet every 4-6 weeks. As life is busy, dates can be booked individually. Although there will be some continuity of theme, each session will stand on its own.
The cost for online sessions is £10 ; or £18 for 2 sessions (where more than one session is offered).
Please get in touch with your questions and to request a booking form. Come and join us!
Finding Resilience and Peace of Mind
Who will benefit?
How to keep going in these uncertain times? Managing the competing demands of a professional role and, often, caring responsibilities too?
Whether you are managing a team or working from home (or both!) this course offers practical solutions to alleviate the pressures of modern, working, professional life. We explore how to build resilience and find peace of mind?
Our inspiration is ancient: Yoga techniques developed over thousands of years. However, this is not about tying yourself in knots! Instead, it is a means to loosen the ties that bind us to habitual stress and the risk of burn-out and ill health.
Professional roles can be rewarding but this often comes at a cost. Stress, lack of exercise, neglect of diet and a less than healthy lifestyle are all common features of modern life. When time is often limited, a practical solution is needed to set us on a more positive path.
Based on my own lived experience of a successful career over more than thirty years, combined with professional training in the philosophy and practice of Yoga, this course offers an insight into a practice that I wish I had learnt twenty-five years ago. For Yoga is all about practice, a personal route to managing stress while retaining and promoting functional good health.
This course is suitable for individuals and for small groups and can be offered in a retreat or workshop setting, as suits you or your organisation. Why not make contact to explore the possibilities?
