April 2018 Update

I am so uplifted writing this news update 8-10 people are coming to the self-practice in the mornings. It is the holidays – here is the proof if any were that Ashtanga Yoga is alive and well at the Arlington! Thank you for those who are available during the break to come and share energy and practice.

This is for your practice so whether it is yoga, breathing bones, pranayama, meditation, your personal practice – it contributes to the mindful and warm atmosphere.

Classes resume Tuesday 17 April with Yoga Building Blocks, the full programme running from Monday 23 April. We continue to enjoy the refurbished Arlington Reading Room space and strong attendance reflects this.

Laura and Catherine will be continuing to offer their classes. There are 3 short courses on offer – Fundamentals of Breath and Ashtanga Yoga, Yoga Sutras on Tuesday evenings with Laura and Exploring the Ashtanga Yoga Intermediate Series with Rosina on Thursday evenings during the next programme.

The next Sunday workshop 13 May is Pranayama and Ashtanga Yoga with Laura.

Yoga, Breathing Bones and Pranayama weekend retreat 1-3 June will now take place in Glasgow! A home retreat – my apologies I got excited and did not check flights. While these are affordable the timetable will not allow for the weekend so will reschedule for 2019.

The programme of 10 regular weekly classes, Pranayama and Asana, Building Blocks, self-practice (Mysore style) along with 2 Breathing Bones classes continues to consolidate.

The weekend of Practice with Radha and Pierre was an outstanding success – so much so they are looking forward to returning 23 – 25 November 2018. It was fabulous on every level – dedicated and committed practice, local, national and international practitioners, generous atmosphere, fantastic food, great space!

In between Kia returns 21 – 23 September, do not delay in reserving your place it is going to be busy.

I am amazingly grateful for the sharing and support for the intensives, courses, workshops and weekly classes.

Thought of the month:

The true essence of yoga takes time. Remember that the strongest tree grows the slowest.
