a master class of Balancing postures for grounding and centreing

In the busy-ness of our daily lives it is easy to become caught up in stress and anxieties, and lose our sense of balance. The practice of yoga can assist us to find the balance between the inner and the outer world, between our daily social interactions with people and our own needs.

In this workshop, we will practice various balancing postures, including Vrksasana (the tree) and some inverted postures, to enable us to take a look inside ourselves and find out what our body and mind are requiring at the moment.  We will use props as necessary to practice some of the more advanced postures.

In the class, there are always options to choose from, you could take the opportunity to challenge yourself and find yourself doing something more than you think you could do – and this will bring joy to both your body and mind.

His classes integrate the different yoga styles of Iyengar and Ashtanga, as well as the softer Sivananda and Satyananda practices of yoga and the energy principles of Aikido. His classes are both challenging and dynamic, and he has a joyful teaching style, laughing all the way through his classes. He hopes that by bringing joy to his students he will encourage them to make yoga a part of their daily life, and is always exploring ways to spread this infectious joy in his students.
