Introduction to the Yoga Sutras
With Emily Lacy
21st September 2019
1.30pm till 4pm
The Yoga sutras is regarded as the most precise and scientific text written on Yoga. Written by Sage Patanjali, the teachings enable one to progressively gain insight and understanding of the deeper aspects of their being, through both Patanjalis cryptic verses and ones own experience.
Yoga Sutras: Introduction to the Yoga sutras/Definition of yoga as prescribed by Patanjali/The five vrittis (modifications of the mind) / Patanjalis 2-step plan for controlling the vrittis.
Asana: Flowing Vinyasa sequence focusing on standing and balancing postures with alignment exploration. Supported by chanting of sutras, pranayama (breath awareness), meditation and hand on assistance.
This workshop is priced at £30, please book via Mindbody or reception.
Let go and open your heart with this Jivamukti Yoga Open Class, followed by Satsang run by We Are Boogie Sound.
Date Saturday 19th Oct
5.30pm Class and 7.15pm Satsang
Join Keri Perkins and Karo Tak for 90 minutes of uplifting Jivamukti yoga flow set to a cool playlist of global electronica and soulful jazz, guaranteed to energise your spirit and feed your soul.
This session will focus on postures that cultivate compassion with a heart opening and backbend sequence.
Yoga philosophy tells us heart openings and backbends take courage and are often counter intuitive, however find the freedom in elongating your spine in a safe and trusting environment.
Satsang means a gathering in good company, and after the Jivamukti yoga class and a short break, Karo and Keri will talk about their passion for music and food and how they relate to the Yoga practice for an hour after the practice.
Karo will discuss her background as an activist explaining the links between her being a vegan chef and yoga teacher and how this also lead to writing her first cookbook.
Keri will talk about how her passion for music and previous career in music PR brought her to the Jivamukti Yoga practice and later launching We Are Boogie Sound. She explains how music and yoga can be an integral part of the yoga path and talks a bit about music, rhythm and the brain.
The Jivamukti open class is most suitable for intermediate and advanced students and beginners with a sense of adventure.
You are more than welcome to just join for Satsang. £5 will be donated to Animal housing charity.
