Seasonal Yoga Intensives
The seasons represent the ever changing cycles of nature, with the rhythm of life. The laws of nature, 5 element theory and Ayurveda all speak of the natural laws and the affect of these upon our energy, our organs, systems and functioning, our emotions, our health and wellbeing.
Intensive week is a focussed time for you to immerse in yoga and meditation practice. It is not at all intense, and caters for all levels of ability. Intensive week consists of early morning class for 5 days with seasonally specific asana, pranayama and meditation. At each intensive, the body receives renewed energy to align and balance itself with the season. The yoga practices nurture and harmonise you with the governing season. The yoga practices are designed to allow the organs to heal and function well. The becomes body cleansed and refreshed. The mind becomes calm, and settles with stability.
Everyone is welcome, suits all levels or abilities.
