Full Description

We welcome yoga teachers for a further training course on How Yoga Works during the Early May Bank Holiday Weekend from Friday 4 – Monday 7 May.
Asanas promote health by increasing the range of motion in the joints, keeping the body mobile. At most joints, muscles are arranged in opposite pairs: movement takes place when one muscle contracts and shortens while the other relaxes and lengthens. Asanas focus on strengthening and stretching the key muscles. This will help to gradually improve any faulty alignment, particularly in the lower and upper back.

This three-day programme will help you to deepen your asana practice, improve your teaching skills and reconnect to the teachings of Swami Sivananda and Vishnudevananda.
