DATE: 29th September 12pm – 2.30 p.m.

The Role of Faith with Pranayama

The concept of ‘faith’ is discussed in various yogic texts. However ‘faith’ can also have a very personal and sensitive meaning. But faith in what and how might it apply practically (or not) to our practice?

In this workshop we will approach areas which perhaps are not so often discussed in yoga workshops. We will have space to articulate our experiences to the extent that feels comfortable, using guided questions alongside selected readings, and help draw out personal affirmations to infuse our preparatory Asana.This will be followed by a long Pranayama practice.

All you need bring is an open mind and heart.

Cost: £25 for those fully waged, negotiable for those in different circumstances. Please contact Surrinder for further information or to confirm a place on. 07702296334 or surrinder@stleonards.studio
