Special Yoga Immersion with James Boag - Unique Opportunity.
Fri, 12 May 2017, 18:00 – Sun, 14 May 2017, 17:00 BST
YogaFrog is bringing James Boag to the Borders for a weekend full immersion workshop in the beautiful setting of the YogaFrog Sanctuary.
Polly was lucky enough to see James in Glasgow in November 2016 and was so impressed that she resolved to bring him to the Borders!
The Theme: Cultivating Harmony in our World Today.
Yoga invites us to work practically with the spectrum of our human experience and the reality of the constant change, challenges and opportunities of a human life.
Whether you are new to yoga, or have been immersed in this field for decades, James’ integrated workshop programs offer us the opportunity to deepen our understanding of the practical resources of the yoga tradition and how we can work with them to foster harmony and fulfilment in all aspects of our lives.
The core teachings of yoga make it clear that yoga ‘practice’ is not confined to the time we are working with yoga techniques, but is really everything we do. Drawing on these essential teachings, we will explore ‘full spectrum practical yoga’ and how the practical gifts of yoga can help us navigate the reality of 21st century life.
Friday 12th of May:
We start our immersion in the evening with a talk by James and beautiful Kirtan.
Saturday 13th of May:
Morning asana practice, delicious and healthy lunch made by Polly, and afternoon session lead by James. He will infuse us with his knowledge which will allow us to apply yoga phIlosophy into our everyday lives.
Sunday 14th of May:
Morning asana practice. Delicious lunch made by Polly.
Afternoon, yoga philosophy to inspire your life's journey.
A few words more about Kirtan:
Yoga and the Power of Sound: Call and response singing and chanting with James Boag
The yoga tradition offers myriad tools we can work with to cultivate integration and recover our innate capacities for deep presence and sustainable wellbeing. These include many sound-based techniques and practices. The extraordinary visionaries and research scientists of the ancient yoga tradition recognised the pervasive, penetrative power of sound and how the readily accessible resources of our own voices can be harnessed to foster harmony through the whole of our being.
The call and response singing and chanting of kirtan, is simple, yet powerful, cleansing and uplifting. James will also speak briefly about kirtan, Sanskrit as an energy-based language, the symbolism and effects of the words we use in the practice, and how kirtan relates to other practices and paths of yoga.
Everyone welcome! Do not worry if you are not a virtuoso singer. The joy and practical benefits of yoga are open to everyone.
