Yoga retreat organised by two experienced tutors Lucie Landau and Maggie Davis. The focus will be on going deeper into your spiritual practice.
We believe that yoga is not just a set of physical exercises but an attitude to life.
This course will be for those who have done the BWY 255hrs Certificate course but would like to upgrade to the full 500hrs Diploma or those specifically interested in yoga philosophy and advanced practices of asana and pranayama.
Some sessions on pranayama and philosophy will be open to the public, suitable for people with least 3 years of yoga class experience.
The course is 95 contact hours run over 14 full day sessions in Robertsbridge, East Sussex, approximately once a month. 3 of these sessions may be a part of a residential weekend. The topics of study will be the Hatha Yoga Pradipika, Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads. Practicals will include kriyas (cleansing practices), pranayama, meditation and progression in teaching asana, all of these will be formally assessed through essays and practical teaching.

I have been teaching yoga philosophy at this new yoga studio for a year and in the few sessions we already covered Kriya - cleansing techniques for the body and mind, What is Yoga - looking at all aspects of yoga not just at posture work and Purification of the subtle body - which is an ongoing study and we will be discussing it again at the upcoming workshop. There will be the theory which should enhance your day to day life but also practical - pranayama and meditation which help in the self-enquiry.
The First session is on Wednesday 19/9 at 5.30-7.30 - consequent session dates will be decided by the participants. You'll be able to find them later on my website.
This is a small group that looks at key texts on yoga like the Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads and discusses their relevance to daily living, we usually conclude with meditation.

Purification of the Subtle body
After our successful retreat this year in D'Alijo Retreat centre in Portugal we are going back in April next year. The place is perfect for immersion into one's yoga practice. This time we plan to focus on the energy (Pranic) system in our subtle body through pranayama and meditation as well as specific yoga postures to enhance the energy flow through the 7 chakras (wheels of energy). Booking is now open.
Mediation sessions with Lucie and Maggie most Fridays or as advertised.
Maggie sends out an e-mail letting everyone know the date of the next session.
If you would like to be on our meditation mailing list, please let us know.

Satsang - literal meaning from Sanskrit sat meaning 'Truth', sanga meaning 'company'.
It is an Indian spiritual tradition which can mean:
(1) the company of the Highest Truth
(2) the company of an Enlightened person
(3) the company with an assembly of seekers who listen to enlightened discourses and talk about the Truth.
(Sessions are free)
The aim of our life philosophy is the realisation of the human potential by opening one's awareness to that which is usually dormant in oneself.
When one experiences the joy of being in the present or in the Self, it leads to experiencing the underlying Unity of All. Yoga gives us various paths and practices that lead to this realisation.
It can be by adopting the selfless attitude of Karma yoga (service without expectations), the worship and service of Bhakti yoga (devotion and surrender) or detached analysis of Jnana yoga (wisdom without attachment).
Hatha yoga gives us the practical advice on how to purify our body and the body's energy system. Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads or Patanjali Yoga Sutras point us to the inner wisdom which we have the potential to discover in ourselves by disciplining the mind.

After that, she had her own studio for a few years. She also taught ceramics at the Art College in Prague and at Adult Education in Kent, England.

Stress remains as long as we have not realised - experienced - our true nature, which is nothing but pure consciousness.
Nobody can avoid it.
If you try to change one situation because you think that another situation will be better, you will have stress in the new situation after some time.
In the beginning you will feel that it is finished and that you are free from stress, but something else will crop up.
It is waiting for you.
Many times you will find the new situation waiting for you in such a manner that after some time you will say: "Oh, my goodness.
I made a mistake by changing the first situation.
This new one is very, very difficult." This goes on in life like this.
The permanent solution is following the spiritual path, and developing faith.
