The third Edinburgh Yoga Festival is happening in May. It raises money for Edinburgh Community Yoga because teachers donate their time and their venues. It begins with a full weekend of events mostly at the wonderfully named Serenity Cafe, then over the week to May 20th various yoga teachers around Edinburgh are donating the money from a session or two. You can see the whole programme on the website www.edyogafest.co.uk
My contribution is called
Celebrating the vital layer of our being - Sunday May 13th 2018, 1.30 - 3 pm at the Serenity Cafe Edinburgh.
The pranamaya kosha or energy sheath is the “energy department” of our system, the link between body, mind/emotions and spirit. Prana is life; and pranayama is the control and expansion of prana. Following the two popular 4-seminar programmes “Progressive Pranayama” I facilitated in 2017, in this 90-minute session we will begin to look at how we can use asana practice not only for its structural benefits but also in the service of pranayama. The breath work in asanas can bring us to a deeper, more inwardly focused place to facilitate pranayama practice; and pranayama can lead us to mantra and ultimately to meditation. This journey is likely to be the central theme of “Progressive Pranayama 2”.
