Program


Friday: MMMmmmysore Class

The tastiest way to practice for personal growth and enhanced understanding

Classes are wonderful. We can unplug and wait for the teacher to tell us what to do next. This is soothing, nurturing and fulfilling. This approach however is like a chaperoned relationship with the yoga. The teacher always looking over our shoulder to remind us of every breath and movement. This is a blessed way to practice and is certainly valid! But within this approach we can run the risk of becoming dependent on the teachers’ guidance to the point that we do not have a sense of our own rhythm, timing and breath. In order to truly develop a deep and personal relationship with the yoga we need to wean our self away from the teachers’ words and seek the voice of Ashtanga as it arises through the sound of our own breath and the dancing flow of the sequence.

The teacher is still present yet only to assist where absolutely necessary. To guide when needed and advise when required. Now the depths of practice spread’s her arms and welcomes us into the flow. This relationship once established is freedom! Now we stand on our own and walk hand in hand with the practice and the ancient wisdom gained from the direct connection. The greatest teachers instill strength, independence and confidence into their students. Mysore practice is a stepping-stone to the path of self-reliance.

Saturday morning from 9 to 11: Compassionately Led Primary

The day begins with David and Shelley taking the students through the traditional flow of the Primary Series. As always, there will be alternatives offered and compassionate attention provided so that all levels will feel comfortable to participate within their particular levels.  

Saturday morning from 11 to 2pm: Fear, Focus, Forgiveness and Fulfillment

Open discussion, stories told and questions asked for David and Shelley taken from the participants in regards to treading the path of practice whilst confronting the pitfalls, pratfalls and fearful encounters of the yogic journey.

Saturday afternoon: Asanas, Alternatives and Attitude

The asanas, sequence and inherent energetic expression of the Primary series will be explored through discussion and applications within a short flow. If there are specific requests for details about certain asanas, conditions and alternatives they will share their insights and practical advice for practicing of the Primary Series to manifest its inherent purpose as a therapeutic and healing experience. 

Sunday morning from 9 to 11: Compassionately Led Intermediate

The day begins with David and Shelley taking the students through a compassionate and measured flow of the Intermediate Series. There are many practitioners that feel a bit intimidated by the second series. It is truly an elegant, beautiful and graceful arrangement of asanas that is much more accessible than one might think. David and Shelley are incredibly intuitive, sensitive and expert in presenting the practice with care, clarity and joy! EVERY asana may be modified, amplified or demystified to suit the needs of every individual. Come and see for yourself!

Sunday morning from 11 to 1pm: Advantages of Age and the Myth of Eternal Youth

Once again there will be open discussion, stories told and questions asked for David and Shelley taken from the participants this time with the focus being on the inevitable reality of aging and the struggles of acceptance, uncertainty of the unknown and the peace found from embracing the journey.

Sunday afternoon: Entering the Jungle and Animal Encounters

There is a wonderful ‘zoological’ component within the Intermediate Series as the animals come out to play in this dynamic and invigorating sequence. In this second session of the day David and Shelley will present ways to approach these animals with care, wonder and joy! They will address any specific areas of interest expressed by the participants as well as providing wisdom gained from personal encounters with the wondrous creatures and the cleansing effects on the nervous system, mind and emotional releases from the power of practice.
