Workshop

Sounding the Heart with Russell Oliver Stone-This is a unique opportunity to participate in a workshop that addresses two very important aspects of Yoga philosophy, the Panch Kosha and Patanjali’s Klesas. The Koshas look on the body/mind/spirit complex as comprised of 5 sheaths, and their interactions while the Klesas are the causes of our suffering in the material world. We will look at theory, but ground it in experiences generated through the practice of Yoga Nidra coupled with Sounding, a means of self-expression through the use of the voice that requires no previous experience.

As an Integrative Counsellor, Transpersonal Psychotherapist and Nada (sound) Yoga teacher, I bring an exciting and fresh perspective on these ancient concepts to help participants find new approaches towards aspects of their life that concern them and will help gain deeper insight to those they teach.


1pm-3.30pm: Ceri Lee - Remedial Yoga – Working with Asthma & Diabetes

Ceri has been teaching yoga since 2001, and has over twenty years practice and experience. Her broad spectrum of training includes certified Remedial Yoga with The Yoga for Health Foundation (2001/02), and Advanced Yoga qualifications in Sivananda Yoga (2001/04). The inspirational teachers who have shaped her approach are Prahlada Reddy – advanced teacher in Sivananda Yoga, Faustomaria Dorelli - Yogaloft, London, and Ellen Lee - Chairperson for IYN.

Ceri’s teaching style is inclusive, adaptive and accessible to all. She teaches weekly yoga classes from where she is based in Essex, and runs specialised yoga retreats and workshops in the UK and abroad. She also teaches Postural Correction and is a qualified Reiki practitioner.

It was through teaching her general hatha yoga classes that she discovered her work was having a profound effect on students with asthma, so much so that some no longer required the use of inhalers. On a couple of occasions whilst teaching on retreats, there were moments of crisis when students had asthma attacks, but no pump to hand. She worked with them to control and calm their breathing with simple techniques until they managed to bring themselves out of the crisis without the need of an inhaler. This inspired her to delve more deeply into the nature of asthma and resulted in creating a practical program to share her knowledge.

Ceri’s interest in yoga with relation to diabetes began when she was diagnosed as Type 1 diabetic in 2011. What began as an exploration into how blood sugar levels are affected when practicing hatha yoga, became a discovery of so much more. Experience of her practice showed how the breath is the key to connect with the healing power of vital energy. www.yoga-light.com

Workshop

Remedial Yoga – Working with Asthma & Diabetes -This workshop will focus on a remedial approach to yogic practice and techniques with specific reference to Asthma and Diabetes. Beginning with an introduction into the medical nature of these conditions, we will then go onto explore why and how yogic practice can benefit, and in some cases alleviate the severity of the symptoms of each condition. We will work with a collection of imaginary ‘case study’ students who will be given health criteria, commonly inherent in these conditions. Also included will be potential crisis situations to work through. These will be used as a framework to draw upon the benefits and contra indications of certain postures and breathing techniques for each individual case study. Working in this way will enable teachers to learn experientially through a practical format, with clear guidance to draw upon in future work.


4pm-6.30pm: Emma Williams - Yoga business coaching

Emma Williams is a business coach, working with creative and holistic companies to help them grow their passion into a thriving business.
