Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Sunday 10th June 2018
In this workshop we will explore three key components of the modern western presentation of Yoga: Asana, Anatomy and Philosophy. Our aim will be to extract the essence – a simple set of principles we can keep close to heart to help ensure our practice of Yoga becomes a pathway to genuine freedom and realisation.
We will weave together our explorations of body, breath and mind with a contemplation of the ‘Heart Sutra’: an essential Buddhist teaching on the nature of enlightened experience. Jonathan was first introduced to this teaching by Ashtanga Yoga teacher John Scott and has since explored it in depth under the guidance of his main teacher of meditation and inner-yoga, Lama Mark Webber. The Heart Sutra is a great support to asana practice, helping tune us into key insights which may arise as we practice on the mat.
