If you've been attending group yoga classes or taken yoga workshops or retreats and have a curiosity to go further, then this course will provide the groundwork which can enrich and develop your practice ongoing. Delve deeper and establish a firmer foundation of skills and background understanding. Explore practice skills and techniques within a broader framework of yoga and understand the methods and systems underpinning it. Look behind your practice for greater understanding of what you can do with it and how it can help.
The two day course, in a small group setting, will include practice of accessible movements, key postures in depth, breath and meditation techniques, sequencing of practice, discussion of purpose and the methods of yoga, and yoga philosophy.
I still remember my first foundation course back in 2005 with Paul Harvey and it was a moment that I have never looked back from. I had always enjoyed yoga classes and was a regular practitioner, but didn't really understand why I did certain things or how it worked or what was different about what I was doing compared to other exercise. I had a regular class practice but the teacher didn't have time to address my interest or help me with my practice as an individual. I was curious but didn't really know how to frame my curiosity - all I knew was that yoga helped me in my life to feel stronger, more vital, less stressed and more able to cope. Hopefully this two-day course will open the doors to a deeper understanding and begin to address questions and any practice difficulties to help develop our practice. The course is developed in collaboration with Paul Harvey.
