 Yoga for Body,Mind and Spirit

5 day self development course

Sundays June 3rd July 1st  August 12th September 2nd   October 7th


10:00am to 4:30pm each day

Yoga philosophy knows we are not just the body and helps us to understand all the different layers of ourselves.  Through this understanding and specific posture work combined with breathing, relaxation & meditation practices we can improve our physical & mental health.

Each day will concentrate on a different aspect of the 5 Koshas or sheaths of being that we are made up of. The koshas consist of a physical, a pranic, a mental, an emotional and a bliss sheath or layer.  This Yoga philosophy will be experienced through specific practices.  If you book the whole course you will receive a personal tutorial. Suitable for students with at least two years of experience of yoga.

Each day can be taken as a stand alone.
