Our Yoga classes were so popular last year. You asked for more! We have worked hard with the lovely Deepika Sall Saini (who runs Yoga Satsanga Ashram - a Yoga Centre on the Pembrokeshire Carmarthenshire border.) Deepika and her husband, Yogachariya Jnandev, train teachers in classical Yoga. Deepika is one of only 3 in the UK with the advanced 3000hours certificate in Gitananda Yoga and returns to India every year to teach on the yoga teacher training course at the highly regarded International Centre for Yoga Education and Research (ICYER) - one of the few still teaching in the authentic Guru Kula way of ancient India
Deepika and her husband are curating TWO amazing Yoga spaces for The Big Retreat in 2019. Both are set in the Old Ferry Field - a 2 minute stroll from the Terrace.
We caught up with Deepika and now share her update blog:
We will be giving as much information as possible about the classes on the timetable - including which level the class will be suitable for (e.g. beginner/intermediate/ advanced) the style, the focus of the class and some bio about the teacher.
I thoroughly believe all 'styles' of yoga are very good for us, getting out there and moving your body is a big step in the right direction, but in truth this barely scratches the surface of what yoga really is. We hope to give a little more insight into real yogic living doing our sessions and Jnandev will give a fascinating talk in the 'Talk Tent' on the roots of yoga.
I will also be leading a session on one of the most important sequences in our Gitananda tradition called the Hathenas which specifically works on making our lungs fit to begin proper pranayama (control of our prana/energy though the breath) practices. Jnandev will also be leading some sessions on traditional surya namaskar sequences and some extensions of these.
