'A Day of Discovery; Introducing Some Key Concepts from Yoga Psychology into Yoga Practice'
10am — 3pm
Location: Yoga Boat Studio, 59 Broadway, Adamsdown CF24 1XJ
I'm very much looking forward to running a workshop at Yoga Boat in Adamsdown and hopefully bumping into some familiar faces! If you have never verntured down to this lovely little studio I encourage you to join us.
The workshop is aimed at anyone who has dabbled with a yoga practice and would like to understand some of the psychology behind it. For example, what are we trying to achieve in a Yoga practice? Is it purely physical or can we impact how we feel and our outloook on the world (the short answer is yes!). How can our practice impact on our relationship with our Self? And, how can we foster a relationship with our practice so that it becomes a support for our lives day to day?
We will take some physical practice and pranayama during the day. However, much of the day will be aimed at discussion of the key concepts from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali (ancient teachings believed by many to be the cornerstone of Yoga study and practice).
Some of the concepts we will discuss on the day include:
Cit — our highest wealth
Citta — the psyche or mind
Nirodha — containment
Sraddha — faith/passion to learn
Tapas — discipline
Viveka — discernment, self awareness
The group will be kept small for the workshop. Please bring a picnic lunch for your own enjoyment. Mats, bolsters and a selection of teas/coffe will be available at the studio.To book or for enquiries contact [email protected]
