Yoga weekend for the Jasmine Trust
November 28 - November 29£130
When we look at modern yoga we can be forgiven for asking what is the difference between yoga and exercise, or yoga and acrobatics or yoga and just having fun with your body. In this workshop I would like to put forward the idea that it is about intention.
With exercise our intention is to affect Structure, either to become stronger, more flexible or to improve our cardiovascular capacity. With Performance it is to master a particular physical skill, It could look a lot like yoga as some gymnastics does, or it might not.
Playing a musical instrument is also a performance requiring attentive repetition in the same way that yoga does.
Or we can play around with our bodies and do cartwheels, or roly poly’s just for the fun of it. The question I am asking is when does our movement become yoga and when is it something else? In this weekend we will try and sift out what is significant about yoga and how we approach our teaching to reflect this.
