A Day to Explore - Gentle Yoga and Somatic Practices with Charlotte Preston

Somantic - of the body', tuning in, noticing what we may feel or experience within the realm of our body, beyond the everyday level of awareness. How it is if we really take the time to notice, and drop in to a deeper experience of body, breath, movement?
Join Charlotte for personal exploration, and discover how gentle yoga can be at the same time strengthening and invigorating! Alongside yoga postures, we will be exploring 'somatic' movements, movements which help form a connection from brain to body, and encourage greater ease of movement. We will be moving our bodies in a variety of different ways, with care, and allowing time to rest as well.
The aim of the day will be to awaken, strengthen and also relax the body and mind through our yoga practice. 


When: Sasturday November 9th
Time: 10.30am-1.30pm
Cost: £25

Yin and Yang workshop with Federica Panichi

There many types of yoga nowadays. Most could be described as either having a yin or yang quality, according to which energy they cultivate. A yang practice consists of steady, unrushed, warming movements, while a yin practice consists of longer-held, restorative, cooling poses. Ideally, we should try to incorporate both practices into regular weekly classes. Often though, due to time restraints, one is prevailing.
A longer workshop can integrate the reinvigorating effect of yang and the grounding effect of yin into a balanced whole practice, which helps us maintain optimal health and wellbeing. Invest in an afternoon with yourself and experience how a comprehensive yang into yin journey through movement, poses, mobility and stability, breath-work, mindfulness and relaxation can allow you to restore a sense of balance, and feel nourished, calm, at peace.
              
          Suitable for students with some experience of Hatha yoga and/or dynamic styles of yoga.


When: Saturday November 9th

Subtle Yoga workshop with Tarik Dervish


Unlike many, my Yoga journey began with subtle meditative practices and I discovered asana many years later. For me, yoga has always been a process that starts with the mind and works its way outwards through the energy body and into the physical body. Though I enjoy and appreciate asana practice, subtle work still remains the jewel of my practice. The experience that I look for in Yoga is best served by working with chakras, meridians, marma points and the subtle essences of prana, tejas and ojas that go on to form the physical body. We will also explore one of the pillars of classical yoga and ayurveda which is the proper maintenance of agni, or metabolic power. The physical agni is best served by diet, lifestyle and appropriate asana practice. The agni of the pranic body is kindled by more subtle tantric practices like pranayama and kriya yoga.
When: Saturday September 28th
Time: 10.00am - 5.00pm
Cost: £75
Teacher: Tarik Dervish
In this workshop, I will approach asana practice from this classical perspective. We will consider the modes of practice from a classical and ayurvedic perspective which are one and the same. We will then practise some simple tantric meditations that bring the pranic body to life and give you a glimpse of yoga’s potential from the point of view of the Hatha Yoga Pradipika.

The day will be a blend of classical yoga philosophy from the era of Kashmiri Shaivism and Hatha Yoga and a variety of asana and subtle practices. They can also be used to gain CPD points.

Entry criteria: You need to have practised yoga for least three years to appreciate these workshops.

Pranayama and breath-work workshop with Laurent Roure

In the Spring of 2020, Laurent will be offering a 30hrs Intensive Pranayama and breath work course at Yoga Junction, in London. 
Set over the space of three weekends, one in April and two in May, the structure of the course is designed to be easily comprehensible and accessible to all yoga teachers, interested yoga practitioners of all levels but also for any therapists who would like to introduce breathwork benefits to their clients.
Students will gain a well-rounded and excellent understanding of pranayama and breath-work, in both theory and practice, through a clear step-by-step approach. The course is particularly suitable for those teachers who wish to refine and hone their breath-work skills and introduce the foundations of pranayama and breath-work into their classes.

In order to figure out if this course is for you, Laurent is offering an opportunity to dip your toes into the course material through a 2-hour taster workshop.

You will have the opportunity to discuss the content of the course including the origin of pranayama, why breathing correctly is so important and the basics of cultivating a nurturing and safe breathing practice.

Most importantly, Laurent will be on hand to answer any questions that you might have about the full course set over the three weekends.

During this taster, you will experience a few breathing and meditative techniques, and you will be given a small hand out with all the information about the full-length course and how to book it.
