YOGA WEEKEND Practical Patanjali Part One: Patanjali's Zen 22nd - 23rd October 2016 @ The Parkdale Yoga Centre, Wolverhampton. (You can arrive on the evening of Friday 21st). This is the first part of a three part course designed to acquaint practitioners experientially with Patanjali's meditations. The course is recognised by The Independent Yoga Network as a post-diploma course for teachers but other practitioners can benefit, including enthusiastic beginners. £185 (per weekend) all in.
Meditation is understood as being at the heart of joyous human flourishing, both for its clarifying effect on thought and feeling, and for its practical and creative effects. It gives us the vast perspective from silence on any situation whatsoever, including that of our finding ourselves alive and kicking.
This course is meant to be of value to anyone engaged in self-enquiry whether a yoga teacher or not. There will be an optional assessment which teachers in particular might like to avail themselves of. It has two components: a seen teaching practice and a written reflection, in the light of Patanjali, on some of your meditation journal entries. Each weekend stands alone and they are paid for one at a time.
Each weekend will have two practice sessions per day and a Q and A session. Informational material
will be presented in podcasts to be studied prior to each weekend. Here is the podcast for WEEKEND ONE - PATANJALI'S ZEN Download this episode (left click or tap to play, right click to save)
