Humanistic Yoga Course – Sheffield Yoga School – Weekend 4 of 4

6th June 2020 @ 10:00 am - 7th June 2020 @ 4:00 pm



Weekend 4:

  • Pain theory in yoga.
  • Secularism, belief, religion, spirituality & God a discussion.

There will be time set aside for practice, where it feels like a class rather than a workshop, so that we will get a feel for how to apply the principles and ideas covered during the course.

“Yoga is a broad church, spanning many styles and belief systems. The approach I am working with at the moment has its roots in a humanistic philosophy. To understand as clearly as one can the rationale for yoga practice, and then to encourage practice with attentive curiosity. So that practice becomes your own, and you grow to be your own teacher.”  Peter Blackaby.

The Tutor

Peter Blackaby is a very interesting and thought provoking teacher. This course will give us time to explore his ideas in depth.

Pete’s humanistic approach to yoga is firmly rooted in the here and now, underpinned by scientific research.

Rather than approaching yoga as an exercise system, he sees it as a tool for self-exploration. By paying attention to our bodily responses, we are more able to react appropriately and are less likely to meet discomfort and pain in life. As we become better at this, life slowly takes an easier turn. We learn to act usefully, and sooner rather than later. We age more gracefully, and we adapt to change with less rancour.

Who this course is for:

This course is designed for anyone with an interest in deepening their understanding of the practice of Yoga.

The course will be equally beneficial to Yoga teachers / student teachers and practitioners.


The fee for this (4 weekend) course is £640.00.
