Seasonal Yoga Intensives

The seasons represent the ever changing cycles of nature, the cycles of life. The 5 elements, meridian theory and Ayurveda all speak of the laws of nature and the effect these have on us physiologically and psychologically; playing out through our bodies, minds, energy, emotions, our health and wellbeing. Living in harmony with nature is one of the great secrets of yoga, promoting longevity, wellbeing and vitality.

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 stable settled with clarity and presence.

Everyone is welcome, suits all levels and abilities.
