Time: 2pm to 5pm (3 Hours)
Dates: November 18; 2018 – March 3, June 9
This “Complete Yoga” combines postures with pranayama and meditation. It’s filled with flowing yoga sequences, which will stretch, strengthen and energise, and bring you to a balanced calm, ready for pranayamas (breathing techniques which do wonders for energy levels and well-being) plus meditation to experience what it is to be still.
If you have been coming to my classes and want to delve deeper into yoga – this is just for you. It is a session which gives us more time – 3 hours – to explore more postures than we can cover in the weekly classes and in the last hour of the session we practice pranayamas (breathing exercises) and meditation – and during this section you can find the relaxation, the sense of calm, clarity and peace you seek. See Testimonials page for comments of those who have attended my workshops http://www.yogabristol.co.uk/testimonials/workshop-testimonials/
Level: Suitable for those who have attended general yoga classes, with Gary or another yoga teacher. It is not advanced in terms of complexity – so will suit most who attend classes.

Feedback from previous workshops
“I just wanted to thank you for this afternoon (yoga workshop). What a wonderful yoga session. I hadn’t had the best week and almost cancelled this morning. But I am so glad I pushed myself to come. I loved all of it; extended on a few positions I haven’t quite managed before.
“I loved the meditation session and in particular your talk on contentedness v happiness. Truly inspirational and peace giving. I will be back.” Jo L, June 2016
“Thanks very much Gary, Emily and I were very pleased that we attended (November 28 workshop). It was excellent having more time to focus on the postures and to learn more about technique. In particular, it was beneficial to have more time to breathe into and relax into the postures. In addition, having a whole hour at the end to focus on breathing and meditation was a real joy.”- Rachel Ferris,” November 2015
“I’ve never experienced anything quite like Gary’s yoga and meditation workshops. It is for me a very rare opportunity to spend three hours completely switched off from the world. It’s difficult to describe the sense of total and absolute relaxation that I always reach by the end of the sessions. Any worries I may have about work, family or finances all seem to fade away. I can’t recommend the workshops enough.” – Lee D, November 2012
“I was initially rather daunted by a full three-hour’s workshop as I have only been practicing yoga for about six months (and only one hour a week) but I wanted to take things a little further. I need not have worried – Gary made the time fly by very quickly and successfully managed to cater for the varying abilities of the people attending. I also enjoyed the meditation session far more than I was expecting as Gary broke this down into bite sized, manageable sections of ten minutes or so. I will certainly attend another of these workshops” – Tracy C, May 2012
NOTE: Venue offers free car parking.
General advice: Wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise; bring warm top or blanket to keep warm during meditation section of class; ideally, do not eat meals before session – allow 4 hours after large meal, and about 2 hours after light meal.
