Early bird price: £25 (until 24 February 2019)
This is a beautiful hall: ideal for a workshop. Odiham itself is a lovely town with lots of hostelries and interesting shops to visit when we’re done.
The workshop will consist of two sessions. We will begin promptly at 09:30 and finish at 12:30.
09:30 to 10:45 will be run by me and will feature a challenging 45 minutes initially then with some work on selected postures.
11:15 to 12:30 hosted by a guest Iyengar yoga teacher, Jane Robertson.
Hello and welcome. Thank you for looking in. I started my yoga career by learning Iyengar yoga (from a book) so would like you to get a flavour of this wonderful, established tradition which suffuses my teaching. My aim is to introduce you to a different type of yoga which will be of benefit to you in all our classes and beyond. Yoga does not start and stop in the studio: it’s so much more than that!
Named after and developed by B. K. S. Iyengar, this is a form of Hatha Yoga that places emphasis on detail, precision and alignment in the performance of yoga postures and breath control. The development of strength, mobility and stability is gained through regular yoga practise.
The Iyengar method of Yoga may be said to define itself as different from other styles of Yoga by 3 key elements, namely technique, sequence and timing:
Technique: means that in practice one learns ever finer adjustments in the alignment of how one performs one’s asana and pranayama.
Sequence: refers to the sequences in which asana and pranayama are practiced. For example, by varying which postures are practiced after which, the mental and emotional effects of the practice can be intensified in a manner not otherwise possible in order to bring about changes to the whole being including one’s spiritual evolution.
Timing: refers to the length of time spent in postures or pranayama. Postures cannot be done swiftly or without awareness. It takes time to move into a posture and become stable. When this has been achieved then one remains stable for some time to intensify the depth of the posture and so extract its benefit. Otherwise the potential effects and benefits remain small compared to what is possible.
The ‘Early Bird’ pass costs £25 if you book before Monday 25th February. After that the cost of a pass will be £30.
We look forward to meeting you there.
