Anahata Yoga Weekend Workshop Wellington

 

‘Yoga; a Deeper Experience’ Flo Fenton Weekend Workshop August 31st-September 1st 2013 Anahata Yoga Studio- Doreen Doolan Mall, (under the clock, next to library) Jackson Street, Petone, Wellington

Yoga is now one of the most widely practiced physical

activities worldwide, and has truly entered the mainstream. Yoga is

taught not only in yoga schools and ashrams, but also in offices, gyms

and health and fitness centres. It is widely promoted as a form of

exercise-a way to get fitter, lose weight, lower blood pressure etc. Yet

the science of yoga is many tens of thousands of years old. Classical

yoga has nothing to do with fitness. The practice of yoga has for many

centuries, and across the continents, provided a deeper insight into the

self, ultimately leading to self-acceptance, and peace of mind. It is

traditionally a tool to understand universal truths-as within, so

without.

Are we, by making yoga more ‘popular’ and ‘accessible’, also

losing the true essence of the practice, and the unique benefits that

yoga has to offer? As practitioners, how can we reconnect with the

broader meaning of yoga in our daily lives? As teachers, how can we

differentiate what we are offering so that our classes are not just

another form of fitness routine? How can we introduce our students to a

deeper experience of yoga and therefore of themselves?

Over this weekend, senior yoga teacher Flo Fenton will guide

us on an inspiring and blissful journey designed to awaken and balance

the layers of our being, from gross to subtle. From asana with a

heightened awareness of the movement of the breath in the body, to

traditional hatha and tantric yoga practices such as fundamental

pranayama, mudra, mantra, relaxation and meditation practices, we will

explore many of the tools of yoga that are often left out of yoga

classes.

The aim of the weekend is to gain a deeper experience of the fabric of yoga that we can then utilize each day.

When we have a balanced practice, which supports the physical

body but also brings harmony to the mind, magic happens. Instead of

merely 'doing yoga' we begin to 'live yoga'.
