Dates moved from July 2021!
Habits biases and beliefs.
It has been said that up to ninety five percent of our behaviour is acted out unconsciously, this is profoundly useful as it economises our movement and thinking. Unconscious behaviour or habits come in two main categories those we seek to enhance or maintain like walking, driving or writing etc. Other habits we seek to disrupt, there are obvious ones like smoking or drinking but also tightening our shoulders or jaw, or getting angry or tearful inappropriately.
In this workshop I will suggest there are three main ways habits arrive; Ambient habits, those that seep into us from our surrounding environment , Conditioned habits, those we are led to believe are good for us, and traumatic habits, the response we develop when something happens to us that overwhelms our ability to maintain equilibrium. In understanding the nature of the habits we have formed we can develop better strategies to deal with them.
Please bring your own lunch.
Limited spaces for bed and breakfast are available. Please enquire.

A Workshop Exploring Consciousness through Sensation
The reality of yoga proposes that we are asleep and yet to awaken to an abiding sense of totality. Initially developed to transcend our conditioning, yoga demanded an austere approach. The exercises are effective but the problem of conditioned minds is deeply embedded. For some, the reality may be the pleasure of the bodywork, for others it may be a deepening sense of self, or a shift in habitual behaviour. The philosophy not the bodywork has sustained yoga’s appeal over many centuries. At its core, yoga’s reality confronts and transcends our limits. We are aware of the physical limitations but generally unaware of the limitations of a conditioned consciousness. Addressing the problem of us takes more than bodywork, but our attraction to the sensory aspect can be used as a door to a deeper and sustainable transformation on other levels.
From Deeper Still by John Stirk
This practical workshop highlights the potential for transformation by approaching consciousness through the sensory aspect of simple physical attitudes.
Suitable for all levels.
