COURSES

Monthly yoga workshops at Dechmont Memorial Community Centre - resumed November 2021.   Suitable for people with some experience and a wish to further their personal development in yoga. 

Theme for 2021-22  

Inspired by “The Secret Power of Yoga” - a translation and commentary on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali by Nischala Joy Devi.  A quotation from the book:

“As a woman who has taught Yoga for more than thirty years, I have felt a great deal of frustration and, at times, sadness at the fact that virtually all aspects of Yoga - from translations of sacred texts to instructions on performing postures - have been interpreted almost entirely by and for men.” 

We're comparing different translations and commentaries and practising asana, pranayama, mudra, bandhas,  yoga nidra and meditation. 

Dates: 10 am to 1 pm, Saturdays February 5th, March 5th, April 9th and May 14th 2022

Cost: £20 per session
