'Hands on adjustment workshop' with David Keil Venue: Stillpoint Yoga London
Date: Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th July 2014
Time: 09:00 - 17:00 (both days)

David Keil, returning to SYL for the fourth time, brings his hands on adjustment workshop to London for the first time. It coincides with the release last year of his highly popular DVD ‘Hands On Adjustments’. For yoga teachers and serious students alike this workshop will shine a light on the deeper aspects of asana practice and how the body relates to asana and their adjustments. The weekend will consist of a full 13 hours of tuition.

Manju Jois in London

I feel really lucky to have practised yoga with the two people I would call the most influential teachers in my yoga practice, Nancy Gilgoff and Sharath Jois, here in London this summer (see previous blog items).

Nancy has of course known the Jois family for many, many years and recommended practising ashtanga yoga with Manju, if I got the opportunity.

I glanced at him in in what seemed to be a very long Utthita Hasta Padangusthasana and saw that he was counting to himself throughout. This really made me smile. The long pranayama and chanting were the best and was indeed the pranayama practice Nancy had t…

Mindful Ashtanga Workshop – £30Pattabhi Jois often talked about the importance of mental training in Yoga and how the asanas will lead to a strong mind as well as a strong body. This workshop will look at the practice of ashtanga yoga as a mindfulness technique. We will explore how the right attitude and focus are key to fulfilling the deeper wisdom of yoga. The body is transformed into a vehicle for our awareness and transforms the practice from physical exercise to moving meditation. Please bring a mat and practice clothes.
