Yoga Sankalpa- the Power of Positive Affirmation

With Swami Shantamurti of the Bihar School of Yoga

In this modern world we are continually been subjected to many different forces and situations creating conflicting desires within us.

This disperses our energies making it difficult to focus on what is our real heart’s desire and how to fulfil our true purpose in life.

This workshop gives the opportunity to explore why and where these desires arise from and guides us through the relevant yoga practices to discover the one desire at a deeper level of our consciousness that promises true happiness.

The ancient concept of Yoga Sankalpa or Positive Affirmation enables us to embed a powerful resolve in the subconscious level of our psyche which can resonate positively in our everyday life and relationships.

This programme is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness but only for those who already have a knowledge of yoga.  It is advised to wear light loose clothing. Yoga mats etc. are provided if necessary.

Cost £40.00 for the day.

A Journey to balance and stillness

with Joanna Fiakkas

This day will be an opportunity to slow down and create space in order to allow ourselves the opportunity to listen to our bodies more attentively as well as explore the experience of being- physically, emotionally, mentally – without holding judgments and expectations.

The morning will be more active and will focus mostly on the physical aspects of our experience and in particular balancing asanas as these more readily demand our immediate attention. The afternoon will focus on the more subtle yogic practices of pranayama and relaxation as a route to finding inner balance and stillness.

Jo is a qualified BWY teacher and has been teaching yoga since 2008 and practising since 1999. She places a strong emphasis on the breath and its connection to movement as well as its connection and impact emotionally and mentally. She has a particular interest in the philosophical underpinnings of yoga and how these can enhance physical and breathing practices as well as chanting and meditation.

Cost £35.00 or £30 if paid before November 2nd

Saturday December 1st 10.00 – 4.00

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

Cheques payable to C. Kemball-Cook or contact for details of BACS payment
