Sunday 1st July 2018
12:00pm - 16:00pm
This workshop will explore ways in which you can deepen your yoga practice and take it that little bit further.
We will start the afternoon with a strong dynamic practice introducing the more accessible postures from the Ashtanga intermediate series and looking at ways to work towards the more challenging postures. After a short break there will be space for discussion on how to create, sustain and deepen a regular Yoga practice, drawing on Yoga philosophy and introducing some journalling. We will end the day with a restorative Yoga session.
