Embodying mindfulness, Weekend yoga and meditation workshop in Bray
3 February -10:00 am - 4 February -4:30 pm€20
This workshop is designed for students with some experience of yoga or meditation who wish to broaden their practice by exploring how asana and mindfulness practices can complement and enrich one another. It also introduces a unique approach to breathwork, drawing from both the Buddhist perspective exposed in the anapanasati suta and Christophe’s extensive study and practice of classical pranayama.
The weekend includes Surya Namaskar and asana practice in the morning, and breathwork (pranayama and mindfulless of breathing practice) as well as other mindfulness practices in the afternoon.
There will also be plenty of time for questions and for this reason, the number of participants is limited to 12.
This workshop, it not suitable for complete beginners. Participants should be familiar with Surya Namaskar, and also be able to to sit still for 20 minutes. Yoga teachers are very welcome.
Bring a vegetarian dish to share with the group, as we’ll have lunch together.
For this workshhop, Christophe and Ciara doen’t charge a fixed price but instead allow participants to decide, at the end of the day, how much they want to contribute toward the cost of the teaching. This is the practice of Dana, which, by turning on its head the capitalist assumption that everything has a price, invites you to explore economic relationships which contribute towards a culture of sharing.
To book, please contact Common ground. There is a 20 euros charge payable to Common ground to cover administration and venue, teaching is on donation. Advanced booking essential
