FUTURE SESSIONS: June 15, 2019

Day: Saturday
Time: 2pm to 5pm (3 Hours)

“Thank you so much for your wonderful workshop on Saturday (March 11), it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done!”

+ Deepen your yoga practice
+ A yoga intensive to immerse yourself in
+ Learn more about yoga and your practice
This session offers you chance to delve deeper into yoga practice – in the first part (the first 2 hours) we focus on yoga asanas (standing, seated, twists, forward and back, upright and upside-down, it’s all in one session), and in the second part (about an hour) we learn pranayamas (breathing exercises) and how to meditate in the classical seated position. Plus you can lie down at the end for a satisfying and rejuvenating savasana (that’s the relaxation position – lying and resting in normal language).

If you have been coming to my classes (or attending other yoga classes) and want to delve deeper into yoga – this is just for you. This workshop offers you the opportunity to taste what it is like to immerse yourself in yoga. Treat yourself, come to the workshop and leave the world behind (for only three hours!).

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.

“Really enjoyed the (workshop) last Saturday (June 9), Gary. Thanks. A challenging yet very therapeutic three hours which left me feeling relaxed and invigorated, mind and body. I’ll admit the hour on breathing and meditation at the end was the biggest challenge for me. I don’t easily sit still for long! Something to work on. I’ll definitely look out for your November workshop.” – Chris Stevens, June 2018

“Saturday’s workshop was great – like the classes- friendly, and supportive with clear instruction. After all the back stretching, shoulder opening etc. etc., the headstand moment came – everyone seemed to be having fun trying, but my shoulders and neck are often quite tight and I thought I probably wouldn’t be able to get even half way there. I looked down the line at my daughter-in-law – ‘You need to do this’ she said – TWICE!. And then I did! Amazing. I’m absolutely delighted!”

“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
