Yoga for Mindfulness with Khadine
on Mondays 7:45pm - £84 for 7 weeks
The aim of this course is to integrate the techniques of mindfulness-based meditation into yoga practice. Whilst all traditional yoga is essentially mindful in that it is encouraging us to move to integration (a translation of the Sanskrit word yoga), this course uses more of the meditation techniques of mindfulness and meditation techniques from traditional yoga teachings than a regular yoga class to enable you to have the tools to become a self-meditator and transfer the deep awareness learned on the mat and cushion into every day life.
Each hour and a half session includes approximately 1 – 1 ¼ hours of asana (yoga posture practice) with 15-30 minutes of formal meditation practice (usually seated meditation but also occasionally moving techniques, breathing-based techniques which may be done reclined, body scanning or yoga nidra – a deep reclined guided meditation practice). It is suitable for anyone either as a first introduction to meditation, a refresher or support to an already existing practice. For anyone wanting to delve really deep into the practice of mindfulness in particular then it is recommended that you attend a mindfulness course (before, after or along side this course). This course runs in blocks of 6-8 weeks.
