SATURDAY 2nd November
10:00 - 17:30
Christopher Gladwell is a leading senior yoga teacher trainer from the UK. He has been actively studying yoga in its various forms of physical practice (asana), bodywork, breathwork and pranayama, meditation and mindfulness, mantra, devotion and bhakti for over 35 years. He is the author of many books, including "Engaged Yoga" and runs a busy studio in Bristol, in between running workshops and Teacher Trainings in the UK & Europe. Christopher’s teaching raises big questions about choices and habits in practice and in daily life. Because he also has a sound background and profound understanding of psychology, anatomy and bodywork he is able to bring deep and clear understanding to the students who practice with him.
10:00 - 13:30
We will start the day with Kriyas. These are ancient techniques using breathing, movement often alongside mantra and visualistion to bring about transformation and spiritual development. This lays the foundation for our asana practice focusing on deep listening, core power and opening the heart.
14:30 - 17:30
The workshop continues after lunch with an exploration of powerful pranayama (breathing) techniques. We will continue our heart opening work from the morning with devotional mantra to bring us home to the heart, followed by deep nourishing relaxation in yoga nidra.
