Master Class Dates
May 9th - 09.45 to 12.15 - Exploring Meditation
“You must hear the birds' song without attempting to render it into nouns and verbs.” – Ralph Waldo Emmerson
"Dhyana is the unbroken flow of thought toward the object of concentration." - Patanjali
We all lead such busy lives but through our yoga asana practice we learn to understand our physical body and we begin to feel the change in the mind. This helps us then to be able to sit and meditate. So, this class will be an opportunity to work physically, noticing the changes as we find quiet time to sit to meditate. If meditation is new for you that is fine as it will be fully guided. If you practice regularly, you may notice a wonderful change in the energy around you as you meditate with a group.
Bring a couple of cushions or meditation stool or extra blocks as we will spend some time on learning to sit properly. (Venue: Eventide Community Hall, Hayeswood Road, Stanley Common DE7 6GE)) All proceeds to Nepal.
July 11th - 09.45 to 12.15 - Vibration of Yoga
'Nada is found within. It is a music without strings which plays in the body. It penertrates the inner and outer and leads you away from illusion.' ~ Kabir
The word mantra means sacred sound, and nada yoga means the yoga of sound. Mantras help us to focus, to dissolve physical tension and to encourage peaceful sleep! They help us to become calmer and more peaceful. This morning we will work with mantra in our physical asana practice but we will also spend time learning some very popular powerful mantras. It is all about the vibration, the energy of the sound. There will be crystal singing bowls, rain drum and other musical items to have a play with. (Venue: Allestree Memorial Hall, 1 Cornhill, Allestree, Derby DE22 2GG)
August 1st - 09.45 to 12.15 - Exploring Colour through Yoga and Crystal Therapy
"When you work with the energy of colour, fear, suspicion, and anxiety give way to clarity, peace, and a deeper knowing of what is forthcoming in your life!. - Laura Alden Kamm
This will be a joint class with myself and my lovely friend and crystal therapist and yoga teacher, Jeanette Bunyan. We will explore the subtle energy system of the body through yoga, which includes the chakras, which relate to various physical organs, psychological attributes, sounds and colours.
Colourtherapy or chromotherapy uses different colours to change or maintain vibrational frequencies in the body to promote well being and harmony.
Colour rays can be applied physically through light or mentally through visualisation, suggestion and meditation.
Whilst having physical attributes, colour also has psychological associations.
Colour permeates every aspect of our lives and our environment. By using colour to balance ourselves physically and emotionally we can promote well-being.
Crystals also work on a vibrational level to harmonise the aspects of the human being. Whether used as a meditation tool or directly placed on the body, crystals have great potential for aiding self-discovery and healing.
Join us for a morning of discovery through yoga and colour.
