|The language of the fitness industry has taken hold of yoga, reducing the practice of postures to ''stretching'' and ''strengthening'' exercises, and perhaps this is enough for those who are content with a ''workout''. As modern exercise systems subsume these aspects of postural work, it is worth looking at other aspects of yoga which remain outside the fitness model. Indeed, the language of past physical yoga traditions has more to do with vitality (pra?a) and stillness (niscala). A combination of the two induces a profound state of meditation, and this workshop will look at how cleansing techniques (?a?karma), postures (asana), bodily seals (mudra) and breathing exercises (pra?ayama) can be combined to make meditation accessible. Modern research is beginning to reveal the numerous psychosomatic benefits of meditation and, when properly combined, the physical yoga techniques are the most effective way to harness these benefits.
This workshop is suitable for those who have some experience with basic yoga postures and a reasonable level of health.
