WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DOING YOGA WORKSHOPS?
Workshops will help to take your practise onto another level as we focus and work on specific postures. You will receive more personal attention on adjustments with my assistance and the opportunity to ask any questions. One workshop can be as beneficial as doing 5 yoga classes. You’ll really notice the difference after the workshop, when you attend a Yoga class –‘The practice starts after the practice’-

Yoga is an ancient, eastern spiritual practice using metaphysical philosophy and postures which dates back more than 5000 years.
This time honored tradition has explored every dimension of life and being. It is a scientific system of total development, physically, mentally and spiritually.
Yoga caters universally. Whether you are a professional, academic, mother, senior or child, the yogic way can be incorporated and intergraded into your life.
The sanskrit word (ancient language of india) ‘‘yug’’ means ‘‘yoke’’ or ‘’to join’’ which is where the name yoga derives from. Essentially, it means we as human beings are all connected to one another as part of the whole universe.
The concept behind the yoga theory is that we understand our connection and union with one another and to the ‘’absolute whole’’. It is to aid us to live more consciously and learn to banish ignorance.
Yoga is the path to liberation and enlightenment through the practice and understanding of how to let go of material desires and free the spirit. It is a true representation of ‘‘simple living’’ yet ‘‘high thinking’’.
It is a valuable resource for those who seek to find the ultimate truth within themselves and live their daily life as a ‘‘yogi’’.
In the west, yoga is identified by its postures and attaining a lean and toned body. Whilst these are some of the benefits, there are many other branches associated with yoga.
My classes vary in styles. In general, I work with my classes’ level and group energy spontaneously. Sometimes I teach a real power orientated flow yoga as my personal practice is Jivamukti, which is a vinyasa based type of yoga. The word Vinyasa means “breath-synchronized movement.” In other words, the teacher will instruct you to move from one pose to the next on an inhale or an exhale. This technique is sometimes also called Vinyasa Flow, or just Flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together and become like a dance. Other times, the class may be a very deep practice of the mind, breath and meditation.
