Dynamic Mindfulness: The EISF Follow-Up Yoga Workshop with Karen Kirkness

Saturday, 9th of April 09:00 – 11:00 at Meadowlark Yoga, 43 Argyle Place

Take your keen interest in body-mind concepts one step further to understand the transformational theory and practice of Patanjali’s yoga.

Following on the overwhelming interest in our sponsored, sold-out event Neuro-Yoga, featured in the Edinburgh International Science Festival, Meadowlark Yoga is hosting this special workshop building on the Neuro-Yoga concepts with Karen Kirkness.

This workshop is designed for those with a serious interest in the mental and physical benefits of Yoga and want to start a regular practice. Join Meadowlark Yoga founding teacher, Karen Kirkness, for this 3-hour session looking at the physicality of Yoga as an integrated body-mind discipline, and go deeper into discussion of the subtle body and its parallels with the physiological stress spectrum.
This workshop is 50% theory and 50% practice, as attendees will be led through an introduction to the vigorous Ashtanga Vinyasa system, the asana basis for all dynamic modern Yoga as we know it. Practitioners can expect the following:
  • contextualisation of modern asana practice – addressing the question “what is yoga?”
  • a basic pranayama technique for stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system and reducing stress
  • introduction to the Surya Namaskaras and Standing sequence
  • a bit of philosophy centred on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
  • some anatomical discussion breaking down the basics of breath, bandha, drishti
This workshop is suitable for all levels, especially those with a keen interest in the power of body-mind practices. Join Karen for a gateway session designed to demystify what happens in a Yoga class and give everyone the tools needed for a dynamic mindfulness practice for optimal physical and mental health.

This 2.5 hour workshop is £25
