Workshops, trainings, and holidays

Sequencing: the Deeper Dimensions with Graham Burns and Susanne Lahusen
At Yogacampus, Islington
Sunday 2 August 2020
9.30 to 5.00 pm 

Really effective sequencing requires much more than simply learning how to string postures together. This special all day 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, and which are safe and effective on all levels – physical, energetic, mental and emotional. A small group, with appropriate socal distancing and other Covid-19 precautions. Find out more and book here

Sanskrit for Yogis: an Interactive Introduction
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Friday 18 September to Friday 16 October 2020: 2.00 to 3.30pm
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.

Meditation Teacher Training with Graham Burns and Isabell Britsch
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Thursday 24 September; weekends 3 and 4 October, 31 October and 1 November, and 28 and 29 November 2020
I am really excited to be part of this new course. It is a unique live online course, offering you the chance to train specifically to teach meditation. Covering a range of meditation traditions and approaches, it will give you the tools to develop your own voice as a meditation teacher. It is ideal for yoga teachers looking to add or deepen their ability to bring meditation into their regular classes; experienced meditation practitioners and/or yoga teachers wishing to share standalone meditation practices with others, in an individual or group setting; experienced meditation practitioners and/or yoga teachers wishing to develop their own meditation courses.

Sanskrit for Yogis: Part 2
LIVE ONLINE COURSE
Friday 30 October to Friday 20 November 2020: 2.00 to 3.30pm
This four week interactive online course is designed for those who have completed Sanskrit for Yogis – an Interactive Introduction with Graham, or who have studied Sanskrit in another forum, and will explore the Sanskrit and teachings of the Īśā Upaniṣad, a short philosophical text which is one of the most respected of all the Vedic Upaniṣads. Each week, we will learn some Sanskrit grammar, explore a section of the Īśā Upaniṣad, recite it, and translate some of its verses together in a weekly 90 minute live online class.  If you have not taken Sanskrit for Yogis – an Interactive Introduction but have studied Sanskrit elsewhere, you would still be most welcome, subject to taking a simple entry quiz. Find out more and book here.

A Weekend of Yoga
at Florence House, Seaford, East Sussex
Friday 23 to Sunday 25 October 2020
Join me on the Sussex coast for another weekend of āsana , prāṇāyāma , meditation, yoga nidrā, good food, clifftop walks and rest! I have been hosting yoga weekends at Florence House for over 10 years and am delighted that so many people come to join me year after year. Each weekend is a bit different, but they are always fun and a great opportunity to re-connect with old friends and make some new ones. The weekend is open to all levels of experience, except complete beginners to yoga. This year, as Covid-19 restrictions currently apply, we will have a smaller group, and all accommodation (except for couples) will be in single rooms. To find out more, or book a place, please email me.
