Workshop for Om Yoga Works
“In today’s yoga environment there are a bewildering array of styles and methods to choose from. For the novice yogi this can be very confusing, and even the experienced yoga teacher can feel pulled this way and that by the competing claims of the various styles of yoga.
This workshop will explore how we can make useful judgments about our asana practice, our breath work and the way we deal with the mind, with the intention of developing a healthy and grounded approach to yoga. It will be a largely practical day with some theory to underpin the ideas developed in our practice.”
Peter says….In the 21st Century Yoga has blossomed into a broad and varied approach that deals with the human condition. It tends to incorporate aspects of the physical, the emotional/psychological and the philosophical. Different branches of yoga will emphasis one or more of these aspects; drawing students to sometimes very physical practices, sometimes very theoretical/philosophical practices and sometimes to psychological practices.
My interest comes from a loosely humanist perspective firmly rooted in the here and now, and my view has shifted over the years from a largely physical view of yoga to a view that encompasses the complex relationship between things, and the way perception influences everything. What do we make of the impressions that come in through our senses, and how do we respond to those impressions? These are the questions that seem important and keep yoga live and ever interesting.
