Freshness, vitality and renewal are the hallmarks of spring. But how do we keep our yoga practice 'new' while building on past experience and knowledge? This workshop will explore this theme, in relation to mind, body and breath, in an energetic format . It is suitable for students with at least one year of regular attendance in Iyengar yoga classes and who are reasonably confidant/stable in sarvangasana (shoulderstand) and will include asana (physical postures) and pranayama (breath work).

The Autumn workshop traditionally focuses on the creation, conservation and flow of energy in the body. There will be an emphasis on restorative asanas and working with the breath for rejuvenation of the body and clarity of perception. Yet we won't forgo the standing poses entirely!

SetubundaNew this year will be a Restorative/Remedial class on Wednesdays at Noon and regular Study Workshops throughout the year, both at the Moore Street Yoga Room, Austinmer. The Restorative/Remedial sessions are for those recovering from injuries or dealing with cronic conditions and will focus on developing an individualised practice for participants and acquiring the skills to allow reintergration into regular classes. The group will be small and bookings are essential. The Study Workshops are for serious yoga students who wish to deepen their knowledge of alignment principles, techniques, variations, adjustments and the whys and wherefores of Iyengar Yoga. If you are interested in either of these new programs please contact Johnny.

All the best for your yoga in 2014

Viparitakorani3smNot just lying around but... we'll explore using props to deepen where we can get to in the poses and develop our understanding at the same time. Restorative poses can rejuvenate the system and autumn is a good time to explore the energy giving effects. So even lying around isn't just lying around... nevertheless, there will be more active work too and pranayama (breath work).
