Contents of a class/workshop

Here is an integral and creative approach to the practices of Asana (posture), Pranayama (breath), Pratyahara (relaxation) over Dhyana (meditation). Students practice yoga stretches, postures and movement, sound mantra, breathing relaxation and sitting. Emphasis is on breath connected posture work where the level of physical exertion is generally mild to moderate (in relation to the dynamic or more athletic forms of yoga).Partner work can also form part of the class. Students should feel free to adjust the practices to their situation under Richard’s eye.
