During the week I hope to give people the techniques & confidence to develop a personal yoga practice, using the Ashtanga asana (posture) system, pranayama (breath work) & Meditation. As we will be using Ashtanga self practice method this means that everyone can learn at their own pace, whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced practitioner.
The focus for the evening sessions will be meditation we will look at different techniques of stilling the mind and the use of pranayama as a preparation for sitting. There will also be an informal talk around elements of the Ashtanga practice and method.
