Suitable for students with at least two years of experience of yoga.

Practice, Perception and Patience

with Peter Blackaby


Perception is a key aspect to the practice of yoga, and the interpretation of what we perceive can have a strong influence on how we feel in the world. We may unconsciously overlay a psychological value to a physical perception, and this is often useful. A feeling of excitement that accompanies the perception of a racing heart, faster breathing and tensing muscles is quite appropriate; but a feeling of fear at the mention of the word head-balance might not be so useful.

This workshop will be exploring the possibility that we sometimes put the wrong psychological value on a neutral physical experience. As we learn to distinguish the difference between simple physical sensation and historical psychological values we start to gain some insight into why we respond to life in the way that we do.

Peter is a popular yoga teacher and author of the book Intelligent Yoga who will share his deep knowledge of anatomy and physiology and encourages us to foster a spirit of enquiry into how our practice feels. These sessions are most suited to teachers and long term students as Peter will be encouraging you to look at theory as well as practice.

Bring your usual yoga equipment and vegetarian food to share. Hot drinks will be provided.

Cost is £50.00
