Beginning a Home Practice
Sunday October 11th
Your yoga practice is an expression of what is alive and awake in you now, observing yourself will lead you into your practice, and help you stay present during your time on the mat. Home Practice is the core of yoga. Class is important because that is where you learn to listen and absorb, but there is more, much more to yoga. Practicing on your own is too important to miss out on. When you begin to practice at home you really learn, really experience the transformative effects of yoga — on body, mind and spirit.
I am inspired by the quote from BKS Iyengar, that the most difficult asana is unfolding the mat. When we get into the habit of doing that much, everything else seems to flow naturally.
2-4pm. $35 cash or check. $40 on line or credit card.
Senior Iyengar Yoga teacher Peter Scott
Alignment and Energy in Yogasana
Saturday October 24- Sunday October 25th.
Peter Scott is one of Australia’s preeminent Iyengar Yoga practitioners and teachers. He holds a Senior Intermediate 3 Iyengar teaching certificate, which he received directly from Yogacharya BKS Iyengar. Peter began teaching in 1982 and in 1987 founded the Rathdowne Yoga Room in North Carlton, where many of Melbourne’s current Iyengar Yoga teachers have trained. Peter’s teaching is distinguished by his extensive knowledge of the body and yogic wisdom, the clarity he creates when teaching, and his quiet ability to inspire and guide the practitioner along the path of yoga. Peter’s classes, workshops, and teacher training bring together all aspects of yoga to provide an accessible path to self knowledge. He is also a Naturopath and herbalist (though not currently practicing). Peter contributes articles on yoga asana to Australian Yoga Life magazine.
