Asanas – Stillness in Movement, Moving Stillness
2:00 - 4:00pm I am keen to conduct an exploration of traditional asanas with preparations, counterposes and advanced form possibilities – taken from an individual perspective - with modifications and adaptions. With this personal approach we will be looking carefully at suitability and alternatives. Ultimately it is the effect of the asana practice on the quality and enjoyment of life rather than the asana itself which is important.
I would also like to consider the place asana holds in the preparation of the mind and body for the experience of yoga - yogascittavrttinirodhah – Yoga is the stilling of the modifications of the mind.
The session will be practical but paced to allow discussion and experimentation.
4:15 - 5:00pm After many years, I am still quite convinced of the usefulness and efficacy of this practice both for deep healing and as a tool for further yoga practices. Suitable for beginning and experienced students.
Cost: Both sessions $55/50
Asanas $40/35 Yoga Nidra $20/18
AN EXPERIENTIAL SEMINAR WITH DR. KAUSTHUB DESIKACHAR
The seminar is open to all, and will be particularly suitable for those who wish to journey to the core of yoga’s philosophical roots, and its practical implementation in daily practice. It will also be invaluable to those who are considering delving further into the authentic teachings of Yogacarya T Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar.
A two hour workshop on the use of mudras to enhance and enrich asana and pranayama practice.
Peter Hockey has been practising and teaching yoga for over 40 years – he brings to the workshop, his experience of those mudras which he has found to be the simplest and most effective as well as some he has developed from classical sources.
