About The Event

The Sacred Breath II.  

This course will run from Monday 23rd through to Friday 27th August 2021 (10am - 1pm daily with optional  Q&A sessions 4:00 - 5:00pm).

Course Cost: £249 (full place) / £175 (view-only) 

Drop in per day :  £55 (interactive)/£30 (view-only)   

 (discounts for premium members and for those )

This course is a follow on from my pre-recorded online course 'Sacred Breath 1' which offers an in-depth guided experience of the most fundamental pranayama practices, together with some exploration of their relationships to natural breathing responses and support.  Taking part in Sacred Breath II will give you access to this previous pre-recorded version for you to keep and work with at your own leisure.  If you have already purchased 'Sacred Breath 1', and you would like to take it further, you can join this course with a 20% discount (make sure you are logged into the account that you purchased it with and it will apply automatically)

The progression that Sacred breath II offers will be a structured and practical guide to how the various choices we have in our breathing patterns can become the source of our natural (and powerful!) support in both movement and stillness. I will include particular individual pranayamas (featured in 'Sacred Breath 1') that can be practiced to awaken and enliven the deeper responses that we need for for this possibility, and ultimately for our healing.

 I will also be taking you through some natural  movements (associated with natural states of being),  that allow the true meaning and value of each breathing choice to become somatically clear to you, and also make it possible for you to experience some of the 'secret' pranayama practices, that are only secret because is is difficult to understand how they can have such a powerful effect.

 

The pranayamas are like the 'exercise' to awaken and enliven the deeper responses that we need for our healing - but 'the Sacred Breath II' will take you into discovering the power of these deeper movements in terms of inner support and external freedom in real-world situations (explored through flowing functional movements and posture).

I will be structuring things so that each day we will be honing our attention directly with one significant area of the body-breath, so that by the end of the 5 days, you will have  strategies that can bring freedom, poise and calm to any movement, posture or functional action you care to pay attention to.  

Each day will run from 10am until 1pm, where I share the fundamental content and guide you through the practice of the day (with a short break mid-morning), and I always make sure that there is time for deep relaxation and/or meditation at the end to help the body-mind relax into integrating the work.

I will be there again at 4pm for anyone that wants to ask questions about the morning's practice.

 

NB.  The afternoon sessions are OPTIONAL.  So I will be taking a poll each day to see if anyone would like to come back in the afternoon for a review (historically, these sessions  really help clear up any misunderstandings and tie up loose ends for people).   

The exception is Friday, the last day of the course, which will have a slightly longer morning session.  It will be a doozie of a day where all of the work we have done can be surrendered in favor of a simpler and more powerful model, that is sourced in ALL breathing choices being naturally available to us.  The experience will be enlightening and paradigm shifting, and your practice will have deepened to a place beyond description.

I am quite well known for saying that 'the breath is where it is at' and over this course,  you will get to experience directly the reality of this statement.

............................................................................................................................................

My workshops are informal, informative and whatever the content, I try to make sure that I accommodate the specific needs of participants, so that value of the work can be directly experienced by anyone that attends.

As usual, this workshop will involve an intensity of personal involvement and engagement, and by the time we finish each workshop your body will be thanking you in no uncertain terms...

............................................................................................................................................

I have been teaching groups of people online and live for over 10 years now, and I have always been surprised at how much I can actually pick up through the screen.  A live and interactive place on these workshops means I can respond directly to your questions and your practice, and with the live places limited to just 12, I will be able to see everyone clearly enough on my large screen to be able to pick up on what is needed just as if it was a workshop in a studio.  You also get the view of my lovely garden, so you get a 'retreat' feel from being with me as I guide you through your pratice.

NB.  if you are unable to book a live and interactive place it means these places have sold out, but you can always choose a 'view-only' place - you can still be there for the live event and you still get access to the recording - all for half price.  (You must take full responsibility for your own body if you do this though, as I won't be able to monitor what is going on for you ).
