Shirley Woods is a certified Vijnana Yoga teacher and a long time
practitioner and teacher of Ashtanga Yoga. She teaches using the principles of Vijnana Yoga – practicing from inside (the work of Orit Sen-Gupta). Our tools are Just Sitting, Pranayama and Asana. Practice of the Vayus deepens and connects this work. The classical method of Yoga combines this with self-study and reading of the traditional texts, giving insight into what and why we practice. Through this we come into meaningful contact with our physical, subtle and spiritual bodies. It extends beyond the Yoga mat into daily life and back again, evolving into a constant learning process.
