Pranayama year long course Feb 2020-Feb 2021$240
A year long course to help you to understand how you breathe, how to breathe to your full capacity and then how to use yoga pranayama ( breath techniques) to enhance your physical, mental and emotional well-being.

Pranayama Graduates Monthly Extension Class 2020
A two hour intensive monthly class for graduates of my year long pranayama programme ( or those who regularly attend my classes). Now that you understand the way you breathe and can use more of your lung capacity you are ready to explore the breath technology of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan.
Each month we explore a new therapeutic breathing practice, exploring pauses, nostril dominance, purification, how to breathe in strokes for different brain focus, and how to whistle your way to happiness. These practices bring healing and a meditative quality to your practice.

Breathwalking combines yogic breathing with a mindful walking practice to enhance fitness, reduce stress and cultivate a happier outlook. This practice has been the most popular with my meditation students over the last few years, with many adopting this as part of their lunchbreak. Come along and learn a variety of breathwalking patterns that you can fit into your everyday life.
A wonder wander combines a breathwalk with a trip to a beautiful scenic reserve. Activities can include foraging, flower essence making, creating a dye bath with weeds, meditation and a shared meal. Our activities for this session will include Green-breathing and making a land essence.
Meditation For Beginners April 2020 – 6 week course
Meditation is a daily tool to create communication between you and your mind, and between your body and your mind. It is an excellent way to connect with yourself and your breath. Just as you have a daily shower to cleanse your body, meditation clears the subconscious mind allowing us to see all our patterns and habits.
Meditation is also beneficial for our bodies. It can be used to release tension, assist with chronic pain, regulate blood pressure, and soothe our nervous and digestive systems.
This course will help you to find a happy sitting style, establish a daily practice and test drive various meditation techniques to discover one that suits you and your lifestyle.
