Iyengar Yoga Workshop  ~  with Isabelle Luterbacher  ~  Now Online

Saturday 27 February ~ 10am to 1pm - £25
We hope to offer this workshop again at the Lotus Loft once restrictions are lifted
on 30 May, 27 June, 15 Aug, 12 Sept, 31 Oct, 28 Nov and 12 Dec

This is a workshop for those with some yoga experience who would like to deepen their practice and understanding of Iyengar yoga.

During the workshop we will explore pranayama (breathing techniques) using different prop supports to encourage openness, followed by asana practice (postures) focussing on techniques to establish greater alignment, depth and understanding of the asanas. Through the asanas we will seek to find better ways to manage the mind. Practicing with conscious awareness and a focus on alignment not
only facilitates the sustaining of the posture but holds the practitioner present within the practice.

This depth prompts mental focus, self-enquiry and opens the practitioner to the experience of yoga beyond its bountiful health benefits, so it becomes a practical philosophy that can support us in daily life. There will be a break between the morning and afternoon session.

Since completing her Yoga Teacher Training in 2003. Isabelle has trained intensively with senior Iyengar teacher Glenn Ceresoli, in London, Switzerland, Italy, Norway and Germany and she has also
completed his Level 1 Iyengar Teacher Training in Australia and Level 2 Teacher Training in India.

Please bring a mat, blanket, strap, blocks and any other equipment you will need.

Are you looking for a friendly relaxation class?

Are you looking for ways to de-stress and sleep better?

Are you new to yoga and wish to find an easy way into your practice?

Yoga Nidra is the deepest form of relaxation.

The yogic state of Nidra is beyond the waking state, past the dreaming state and is a form of sleep state where you are actually awake. The stillness of this practice brings incredible calmness, clarity of mind and deep nourishing rest.

In this 2 hour workshop you will enjoy a calming meditative yoga practice before embarking on a Yoga Nidra journey. You will be fully guided during the session.

All levels welcome including beginners. You will leave the workshop feeling renewed, energised, fully rested as if you have had a conventional sleep for a much longer period.  You will enjoy complete physical, mental and emotional relaxation. When Yoga Nidra is practiced regularly, it brings a deep state of calm which transcends into everyday life. Even strenuous mental and physical activities will not feel as stressful when you have achieved this state of calm.

Come and try it for yourself!
