This event is open to all and can count towards CPD for teachers.
Yogi Kaivalyananda is one of the world’s leading exponents of Himalayan Hatha Yoga. This powerful form of hatha yoga is based on traditional principles of yoga. It is a strong, yet supportive form of practice which works through the entire body, building strength and flexibility, cleansing and revitalizing through special sequencing, specific use of the breath, bandhas and mudras, with a combination of subtle body exercise.
In this workshop weekend, we will feel the powerful impact of the correct use of the breath, locks (tongue, root, solar and more), mudras and different sequences, bringing more understanding of how to work in harmony with the body for optimal health and vibrancy. In addition, we will practise pranayama with a deeper level of precision for a heightened impact.
