Iyengar Yoga Weekend
A Yoga Weekend. With delicious and nutritious home -cooked vegetarian food and simple accommodation in converted farm buildings and old farmhouse. The Yoga Studio is the old hayloft! Friendly and welcoming!
Type of Event
One of several Yoga Weekends at Lower Shaw Farm
Tutor: Dave Dayes
Iyengar Yoga will be taught in a way that is suited to those who already have some experience of yoga.
Dave’s aim is to challenge students to make progress on their poses and come out of their comfort zone, but the general atmosphere is light-hearted and fun! When a student goes up into headstand for the first time we all share in their sense of achievement and joy. He recognises that everyone develops at their own pace and aims to teach with compassion and empathy.
On Saturday there will be an early morning Pranayama (breath control) class, then following breakfast, after an optional short local walk, a two hour asana (postures) class. After lunch the options are to relax at the farm, use the rustic sauna, or go on a led walk in the local countryside. In the late afternoon there will a restorative asana session, including inverted poses.
Group size: up to about 12.
