Having both practiced and taught yoga for many years I have been through the cycles - from practicing once every few weeks to every day, to when I feel I need it. Slowly my own practice has grown from a physical form of movement to a much deeper response. As I learnt about breathing and meditation, yoga nidra, philosopy, Ayurveda and diet, and as I learnt from my students, I now choose my practice depending on my mood and needs. Throughout my journey so far I have found workshops and trainings to be the best way to really learn and develop.
I love the weekly classes I teach, which allow me to share my passion with others. However, I am accutely aware that you can only go so deep in classes like this because there just isn't the time! As a response I have always run workshops alongside my classes. The 2-3 hour sessions allow people to delve into a practice that you could spend a lifetime studying. The understandinggained allows students to go back into a class (or home) and practice with so much more knowledge, which is essential in order to really 'get' the practice.
If, like I used to, you have been practicing yoga in a class regularly, try a workshop. Pick a subject or pose you are interested in and then spend a couple of hours with a knoweldgable teacher breaking that down. Explore the other aspects of yoga that exist outside the 'fitness/yoga studio'. I guarantee you will return to your mat with a whole new perspective and enthusiasm!
I am putting a series of workshops and 6 week courses together in the local area (Worthing) over the next few months. Please contact me for more information, or follow the link below!
