Sanskrit for Yogis: an Interactive Introduction
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Next dates coming soon
This unique interactive small group five week course will introduce you to Sanskrit – the language of yoga – through a weekly 90 minute live online class. It will give you the skills to pronounce Sanskrit words accurately, and to recognise some basic word forms – all in the context of an interesting, less well known, yoga text. We will structure our learning around the Yoga Tārāvalī (the ‘Yoga Constellation’), a text which is not as widely known as texts like the Yoga Sūtra or the Haṭha Yoga Pradīpikā, but which is composed in reasonably accessible Sanskrit and contains some interesting – and often very poetic – teachings about yoga. No previous knowledge of Sanskrit (or of the Yoga Tārāvalī) is needed, but a basic understanding of grammatical (and yoga) concepts will be helpful. If you do have some knowledge of Sanskrit already, the course will let you apply that knowledge to the teachings of the Yoga Tārāvalī. Find out more and book here.

Sequencing – the Deeper Dimensions: on- and off-line with Graham Burns and Susanne Lahusen
LIVE ONLINE WORKSHOP
Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 March 2021: 4.00 to 6.30pm
Although primarily aimed at yoga teachers and trainee teachers, the ideas discussed in this two part workshop will be relevant to anyone with a self-practice – or wondering how to build their own practice. Both sessions will mix theory, practice, and interactive experimentation. A teacher who has mastered the art of class sequencing can transform an otherwise mundane vinyasa class into something truly inspirational. But really effective sequencing requires much more than simply learning how to string postures together. It needs clarity of purpose, a good understanding of the mechanics of the body, and recognition of how different postures and practices will impact the practitioner energetically. And, in the world of online teaching, we also need to understand how to adapt our sequencing skills in order to keep our classes accessible. This workshop will help focus and deepen your understanding of how to employ the body’s mechanics, together with the profound energetic ideas of yoga, to create class sequences which will inspire your students, which are safe and effective on all levels – physical, energetic, mental and emotional – and which online students will be able easily to follow.
