With Clara Lemon Starts February 2020, monthly Sundays - see dates below
The Yoga Foundation Course Level 2 will broaden and deepen your understanding of yoga and refine your practice skills both on and off the mat to enhance not only your practice but your everyday life.
Expand your yoga practice experience based in the tradition of Viniyoga. The course provides in-depth explorations of essential primary asana (postures), developing your understanding and experience of pranayama (breathwork) and meditation practices, and exploring mudras, bandhas and a wider range of yoga techniques. All underpinned with an exploration of the essential philosophies from which these practices emerged.
Ancient and traditional yoga teachings framed in a modern-day context. Everyday applications of yoga philosophy, and the sister science to yoga, Ayurveda, are all aspects that help support you. This study course will enrich you in gaining more from your group yoga classes, in developing a personal home practice, adapting yoga to more effectively and efficiently be of benefit to you and your everyday life. The course includes a detailed course manual and between each session will be guided home practice and home study.
The course will be in a small group setting with a focus on practical work, practice skills, in-depth explorations and underpinning philosophies and comparative traditions for greater context of understanding.
Traditional approach The course has been developed in collaboration with Paul Harvey based on his Foundation Course (which I took back in 2006-5 and loved every minute of it). Paul was trained by TKV Desikachar over 25 years who contributed to Paul's own training course which he taught over many years at the Princes Place studio. A traditional but non-dogmatic approach to yoga welcoming of individual adaptations and experiences.
The Level 1 & 2 courses are equivalent to the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course and the Sadhana Mala Art of Viniyoga training course. This course is for interested yoga practitioners who want to explore and understand their yoga practice more fully. It is suitable for all abilities and will be accessible to everyone who is interested. Also suitable for yoga teachers who want to understand more about the Viniyoga approach.
