Friday 17 April 202018.15 - 20.15 Play, Pause and Possibilities! with Julie Robinson

Life can sometimes feel like a rollercoaster which never stops. Without mindful attention we can find ourselves stuck in grooves which don't always serve us. Movement, behaviour and thought patterns can become routine and ingrained. Any time is a good time to shake things up  a little ….to play and have fun with yoga and movement.

Join Julie for this Friday evening session to explore moving in unusual ways and revelling in possibilities. Then take a pause to consider what is really important to you and what you might want to discard.

All are welcome to come along and play.

Tuesday 23 June 202010.00 - 16.00 Empowering the Ageing Body with Monica Voss

As the population ages, teachers must inform themselves about natural changes in the body as well as common conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. Changes in outlook also occur in older students as they contemplate their lives and goals.
Using postures, breathing, relaxation and discussion, we will explore these and other issues of ageing and create intelligent and supportive options in order to instruct older students holistically with energy, knowledge and empathy.

Open to teachers and interested students alike - all are welcome.

Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 October 202010.00-4.00 / 9.00 - 2.00 Sensation and Consciousness with John Stirk

An Original Body Workshop with John Stirk

We study the body but cannot help but be students of the mind. As we work with the finer elements of sensation, the mind is ever present rarely if ever switching itself off. How can we engage this continuum of activity to enhance insight and understanding? The body houses consciousness, minds and selves and may be approached accordingly.  Each sensory nuance and realization has a psychological and emotional counterpart. The unitive experience provides the essence of yoga. We cannot divide the indivisible. This practical workshop will include discussion on the physiological, psychological and emotional insight that arises as we work together. 

We will use the following as an open guide;

  • The Group field - the Physiology and Psychology of groups

  • An approach most suited for addressing the conditioned ego

  • Consciousness in Western Terms - Dynamic Consciousness

  • Sensation and Heightened Consciousness - The Skin - The presence of the Heart

  • The Nature of Attention

  • Emotion insight and Wisdom

  • Process, what comes up in group work?

  • Dividing the Indivisible

  • Materiality and Non-materiality and the nature of experience 

  • The Body as the Mind

Timings will be Saturday 10.00am - 4.30pm, Sunday 9.30am - 3.30pm

John Stirk is one of the UK’s leading Yoga teachers. With a background in Osteopathy, his influences include R.D.Laing, J Krishnamurti and Hatha Yoga. He has followed with interest, the innovative  approaches to body mind work coming out of the USA and Northern Europe for almost a century. His predominant inspiration arises from an experiential enquiry into the nature of consciousness in relation to physical sensation. John teaches and runs courses for teachers in the UK and internationally and has authored several books, notably’ The Original Body’
