Breathe and renew Yoga workshop
Sunday 26th June 2016

9.30am – 12.30pm
Yellow Wave Clubhouse
299, Madeira Drive Brighton

Breathing is a fundamental part of Yoga practice and, of course, a fundamental part of life itself! The whole Universe is described by ancient sages and modern science as an expression of in and out breath.

We will spend the morning moving and breathing, inspired by sea views. As we liberate our natural breath we will release layers and layers of tension in the body/mind and create more space.

During this workshop I am planning to give some information on what is known from modern science about breath and different breathing patterns. We will also learn how breath and breathing was viewed by ancient yogis.

We will touch upon the subject of pranayama, or breath control. Pranayama is used for cleansing the body’s energy pathways in order for us to obtain optimal health and liberation.

We will also look into various ways of incorporating bhandas (locks) into our own yoga practice. Bandhas involve ‘locking’ particular pranas (your internal body energies). They play an important role in asana practice and have a deep cleansing and regenerating effect.

We will finish with an extended pranayama and relaxation.

The number of places is limited. Booking in advance is advised.

Cost £20

Why Are We Doing Yoga?

Monday, March 4th, 2013

“Why are we doing yoga?  For health reasons?  Perhaps a walk in the park would be better. Out of sense of duty and discipline.  Or for some obligation towards ourselves? No, nothing of the kind.  No motivation, no aims, only an agreeable appointment for the body to look forward to.  We do it for the fun of it.  To twist, stretch, and move around is pleasant and enjoyable, a body holiday.” By Vanda Scaravelli

I love this quote by Vanda Scaravelli because it reminds me of what yoga is really all about – a holiday for the body. Vanda Scaravelli’s approach continues to inspire me and the classes I teach. So who was Vanda Scaravelli and what made her so special?
