Some of you will remember meeting Sarah Jane from the retreat in Crete. The Yoga Extension is delighted to welcome her to our studio in Glasgow! This 3-hour long workshop will suit those with some yoga experience, and costs just £25.

Sarah Janes says, “I have immersed myself in yoga since 1998 when a trip to Thailand completely inspired my direction in life. Yoga has become a lifestyle and an ongoing source of inspiration.

I spent several years following various styles of yoga with different teachers internationally. I particularly loved the precision, integrity, authenticity and serious disciplined approach of the Iyengar system of Yoga.

Since 2004 I have been following teacher training programs in the Netherlands and in India and now hold an Intermediate Junior 3 level in the Iyengar tradition.

This structured, methodical, practical approach results in a clear understanding of the asanas and gives a solid foundation, developing strength, stamina, flexibility, balance, and concentration…

Using this physical discipline to cultivate deep awareness and connection and transforming it into a spiritual practice… Working from the body to the mind, continuing the refinement of gross to subtle, is my intention.”

Exploring the hip and pelvis

This session is for anyone with an interest in how the body works. No prior anatomy knowledge is needed.

There will be a mixture of practical and theoretical content, with lots of visual aids and written material to help your own exploration.

Emma has been teaching Iyengar yoga since 2008 and continues to study with Senior teachers in Glasgow to improve her own practice and develop her teaching skills. She has a high level of understanding of how the body works from her work as a Specialist Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist.

Cost: £20 and advance booking essential.

We look forward to sharing this event with you!

Thursdays 18th April to 9th May (4 weeks)
7.45 pm to 8.45 pm

‘Today, pranayama is taught and practiced without preparing the elasticity of the lungs, softness in the nerves and silence in the brain and mind. Practice of pranayama requires a great deal of enduring patience.’ B.K.S. Iyengar

This course is open to those who have practiced yoga regularly for 18 months or more. We will be analysing the pattern of the individual breath, where there is tension and exploring ways to remove this. This will enable movement towards the techniques of Viloma, Bhramari, and Ujjayi pranayama. As each week builds from the previous, it is not possible to join halfway through the course. I look forward to exploring this challenging yet rewarding practice with you.

‘Today, Western medical and scientific studies are proving again and again what the Eastern health traditions have known for centuries: when we breathe well, we create the optimum conditions for health and well being.’ Donna Farhi ‘The Breathing Book’

Advance booking is essential. This course costs £35.
