About the Event
This workshop aims to encourage a deeper more fulfilling yoga practice by beginning to understand the philosophy behind the mat practice.
We will learn how yoga works and what can get in the way or block the potential positive outcomes of the practice. We will investigate where our mat practice and yoga philosophy intertwine. Using practical examples from our mat practice we will begin to understand where and why the obstacles may appear and potentially prevent progression in our practice.
There will be a mat practice during the workshop to observe potential obstacles and our reactions to them. Practicing in awareness of our personal obstacles can allow us to reframe and, ultimately, create the freedom to move forward.
“We are on the mat as we are in life” – Coral Brown. Our mat practice is life practice. If we are able to identify and reframe things on the mat, we can use these skills to manage life off the mat.
This workshop is an introduction to the philosophy of yoga and is suitable for all, students who are keen to delve a little deeper and teachers who would like a philosophy refresher.
There are also limited in person tickets available for this workshop, see Workshops for booking..
