Dynamic Yoga Immersion with Mark O’Brien this weekend 21-22 May

Dynamic Yoga Immersion with Mark O'Brien this weekend 21-22 May

Embracing the not-knowing. Grasping the fundamental principle of existence. This weekend with Mark O’Brien is intended to take your dynamic practise to a different level in body-mind-awareness. For teachers, this weekend will be particularly beneficial both in terms of the architecture of your classes and inspiration in your teaching. Join us this weekend – 21-22 May with Mark O’Brien.

“Gradually, each in our own way we discover that living from the Source – which often feels like living from Not-knowing – has an uncanny wisdom about it…. It is what the English philosopher Douglas Harding calls ‘alert idiocy’. Grasping the fundamental principle of existence is recognising that deep down one knows nothing…” — Richard Lang

Session 2: Opening to Wonder… Embrace the not-knowing – Sunday 9:30am-12noon
When we understand that there are things that we do not understand, it makes life beautiful and exciting, full of wonders to explore, full of opportunity for new understanding and personal growth. Wonder comes at the beginning of the spiritual journey; the journey to find real truth and solve the mystery of life. If yet another sun salute makes you feel like it’s “Groundhog Day” this session will show you simple ways to awaken your enthusiasm and curiosity as a core value on your spiritual path. Expect Asana, Breathing practices, relaxation and a good dose of fun.

Session 3: The art of Yoga sequencing for truly compelling classes – Sunday 1-3:30pm
This workshop will teach you to develop safe, effective, creative classes for all levels of student, and help you integrate broader Yoga principles and insights beyond functional asana… and it will save you masses of time planning brilliant classes! Suitable for teachers and students. You’ll leave with a kit bag of useful principles to adapt to any class situation and some tried and tested class plans. This is an interactive workshop including lecture, small group experiments and some yoga practice.

“Thank you for a great sequencing workshop, it has made me feel like I am on the right path with my class sequencing and also given me loads of inspiration for further training in teaching and learning advanced postures” – Ingrid
