Coming up for Air - Foundation course part 2

Join us on a six-month journey of enquiry and exploration into the practices of Yoga.

Following on from our “Diving deeper” foundation course we are now “Coming up for air” integrating practices and theory that we can use in every day life, right here, right now.

We will connect in-person as a community at St Mary & St Margaret’s hall in Castle Bromwich, Birmingham between October 2022 - March 2023.
Our accessible sessions will be based around the pancha mahabhutas - the five great elements which are seen in Yoga and it’s partner science and philosophy Ayurveda. We will weave in theory from different paths of Yoga in a down-to earth and enjoyable way. Topics that will be touched on are Asana (developing the postures of Yoga for the individual), the yamas and niyamas of Patanjalis astanga system (eight limbs) and how they might fit into a modern world, developing our meditation practice, sustaining our practice as a wellbeing tool for body and mind, the chakra and nadi systems (without the faff!)

There will be a wonderful course book and some online content added each month to support you. A supportive and openhearted sangha (community) will be there for you along the way.
