1. Hip Opening Intensive
– Thursday 21. Septmeber 18.00 – 20.30
We’ll warm up with the world-famous Purna Yoga Hip Opening Series™, and then keep going deeper into the hips with some powerful refinements of poses you may know, as well as some hip openers that will likely be new to you. This class is going to be focused, juicy, and sensation-full. We’ll also look at what your hips are
telling you on a psychological level, and you may be surprised!
2. Purna Yoga Intensive: Physical Strength, Mental Focus, Spiritual Power
– Friday 22. September 17.00 – 19.00
Come explore the sweatier side of Purna Yoga as we take the safety, alignment, and sequencing wisdom of the practice into a power flow format. During the practice, we will use Heartfull™ Meditation centering and breathing techniques to make the practice a “work-in,” not a workout!
3. Open Heartfull™ Meditation FREE CLASS
– Friday 22. September 19.30 – 20.30
4. Purna & the Future of Yoga:
Saturday 23. September Full day workshop
Consciousness: 10.00 – 13.00
What is the grand universal design, and what part does each of us play in it? How do we cultivate a yoga practice that fits into our modern world while also uniting us with our unique purpose? We will explore these questions
and more through the lens of the sacred geometry of Sri Aurobindo’s symbol, and then apply its timeless wisdom to a purpose-driven asana and Heartfull Meditation practice. This will be “big picture” work, but will also teach
you practical application of yogic truth to your daily life. Includes interactive philosophy discussion, asana practice, and Heartfull™ Meditation.
Creation: 14.30 – 17.30
An elevated consciousness, in and of itself, is not the point of yoga; yoga seeks to create, evolve and transform the material world by using that consciousness as a creative force. In this session, we will build on the morning’s workshop by exploring the Mother’s Symbol, which is a template for creation, so we can better understand how to make real changes in real life. Do these workshops sound too esoteric for you? Let’s make it practical: imagine your life if you were connected to your highest and best self, and that part of you guided your daily decisions and created your life experience. What has more practical impact – living that way daily, or having an asana practice that makes you feel good for a while?
5. Heading Towards Headstand
Sunday 24. September 10.00 – 13.00
Shirshasana has more benefits than any other pose, and it’s completely safe IF you know what you are doing. In this class, we will learn how to build to and perform a safe and effective shirshasana. By the end of class, you will know exactly what prep work you need to be doing in your practice to build to the pose. You will have “readiness” tests that will clearly identify when you have developed the required shoulder flexibility and strength to do the pose. And you will know how to precisely create the foundation of the pose to keep your neck and shoulders safe for a lifetime of practice. Shirshasana is NOT a pose to try casually, but it is one that should be
in your repertoire. Come and learn how to build to the pose the Purna Yoga way.
(Note: shirshasana is contraindicated for the following: seizure conditions, stroke, eye conditions adversely affected by pressure, neck issues, heart conditions, high blood pressure, acid reflux, hiatal hernia, menstrual period.)
6. Bhujangasana Master Class
Sunday 24. September 14.30 – 17.30
This class will turn cobra-haters into lovers, and will take cobra-lovers into a new state of bliss. Whatever your relationship with the pose at the start of class, you will have a deeper understanding of bhujangasana by the time we are done, as well as an enhanced skill set to create a more complete expression of the pose in your body.
You do this pose most every class; come and learn how to get the most from it! Several “a-ha!” moments are guaranteed.
