Beyond Asana - with Virginia Compton


The Yoga sutras give us 8 limbs of Yoga and yet in the west we primarily focus on Asana (postures).  This workshop will include a simple Asana routine and will then focus upon Bandha, Pranayama, Nidra and Meditation, allowing us to experience the shift of energy in the bodymind, withdrawing our senses (pratyahara) using Mudra and NIdra and then focusing to assist a state of meditative awareness. This will be followed by refreshments with opportunity for discussion of the experience and questions as well as consideration of how tis may be incorporated into our regular self practice.

£25, £10 deposit payable on booking. If booked with afternoon workshop (see below) then cost of both workshops is £45 (a saving of £5)
