Program

During this course we will learn and practice a series of yoga postures (asanas) that rejuvenate the body and better both your physical and mental wellbeing.

Different asanas correspond to strengthening and stretching various muscles throughout the body, ultimately preparing us for seated meditation. We will investigate both contra and counter indications of each of the basic postures

We will also study and practice traditional breathing techniques (Pranyama) such as full yogic breath, alternate nostril breathing and kapalbhati. Pranyama exercises elevate the body’s state of being and directs the flow of energy throughout the body. The breathing exercises promote both physical and mental benefits such as decreased breathing rate, removal of stale air and toxins, and generally calming the mind.

This course will give you a basic understanding of both the philosophical and practical aspects of yoga preparing you for a life long stable yoga practice, both in a studio or at home.

WHO'S josh

After leaving my first yoga class  at the age of 16 and stepping into the car I knew that there was something special and life changing about to happen. 

 A few months later I found myself signing up for a yoga teacher training, excited to begin my deeper enquiry into yoga. The course I completed barely scratched the surface with regards to my understanding of yoga , however it did allow me to come into contact with the man I call to even now my teacher Conrad Paul. He inspired me with his light and love to take my practice further and go to India and complete a teacher training in traditional Sivananda .

With a strong desire to learn more about yoga I followed his advice and went to India. I studied Vedanta, Pranayama, Asana, Dhyana and Bhakti  yoga over the course of 4 weeks and they were the most life changing weeks so far in my life.  I  am now back in my home town after living for many months in the Sivananda centre in London and France and am here to share with you all that I have learnt and accessed so far  to serve the local community with the knowledge and experiences of yoga that I have accessed so far.
