8 class card/ monthly pass applies to these sessions

These classes are for those who are complete pranayama beginners, practitioners who have done pranayama but don’t have a regular practice, or for those who have a yoga or meditation practice and want to delve deeper – all are welcome.

The breath is key to Ashtanga yoga practice. It allows for the deepening of postures and enhances their benefits. During the course, each session will build on what you know and will develop the tools and techniques required to help you set, refine and sustain an individual pranayama practice.

During these sessions you will:

• Learn about the breath – to observe it, to follow it and to enhance it

• Learn to deepen your breath, allowing you to become more aware and mindful, calm and focused

• Learn preparations and purification techniques that will help to boost the benefits of pranayama

• Learn more about how this practice relates to the Ashtanga yoga system.


THE YOGA SUTRAS

with Laura Gonzalez

Tuesdays 5, 12, 19 February 2019

17.00 – 18.15

£48/£43 Arlington members, concession

If you practice any form of yoga, you probably have been wondering how it works, why it works, maybe even what is this thing we do. Yoga is a tradition, it has a lineage that goes back to ancient texts that used to be discussed in groups, in satsang, a group that meets to discuss being-ness.

This course might just answer your questions or may perhaps spark further explorations on and off the mat. We will explore Books 1 and 2 of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. They outline what yoga really is about, on the mat, the cushion and life. They also offer a practical guide on how to do it! Laura will provide copies of the Sutras or you can also bring your own if you have it.

Yoga philosophy is very inclusive: there is no right or wrong. Come, deepen your knowledge and be inspired by this ancient text.


YOGA for MEN

With Ali Sim

Tuesdays 5, 12, 19 March 2019

17.00 – 18.15

£48/£43 Arlington members, concession

When we practise yoga we’re using our whole body, building strength and flexibility in parts of the body that often gets ignored when we workout, run or cycle. Yoga helps balance the body, stretching all areas of the body, building strength in underutilised muscles as well as being calming and healing for the mind and body.

This course is offered for men of all ages, shapes and sizes to come and try, with specially selected postures targeted for men.

“I often encounter men who tell me that they’re too inflexible to do yoga, and I can only respond with ‘that’s the perfect reason to start yoga!'” Ali Sim
