About the Yoga Course: There is so much yoga available these days, it can feel like a circus, adding to feelings of inadequacy, comparison, worry, self doubt - taking us away from the essence of yoga. We are all different; in our range of movement, patterns in our minds, where we hold stress and how we breathe. Sometimes yoga can feel like we are trying to fit our bodies into shapes, this course will help you embrace those differences and know how to work with rather than against them.
Course Structure: This 5 day course will cover the 4 cornerstones of a yoga practice;
Asana - Postures - mindful movement, using the body to realise holding patterns. Balancing strength & softness.
Pranayama - Breathing practices - learning how to breathe effectively - understand the link with your nervous system. How to use breathing to manage stress, anxiety and mood, quickly and effectively.
