A day of yoga exploring the intimate connections between perception and the head, shoulders, arms and hands. We will explore the feeling of being ‘in our heads’ and ‘out of our minds’, using our senses to touch the world around us and turning them inwards to experience the inner landscape of ourselves. We can explore through movement, and meditation Patanjali’s idea of consciousness and the embodied state and speculate on the true nature of the siddhis (special powers) that he suggests a yoga practitioner may acquire, with practice.
I trained first as a dancer but soon discovered I enjoyed the rehearsals more than the performance. This led me to a fascination with the felt sense of the body moving and to the world of yoga. I have been teaching yoga for over 20 years and am the director of Yoga Junction studio in London and the author several books. I discovered Rolfing through yoga (Ida Rolf did yoga too!) as a student of Giovanni Felicioni. Rolfing was a revelation to me, being the strongest, most effective and permanently transforming bodywork I have ever encountered. My own yoga practice transformed and developed as I experienced the 10 sessions myself and then even more as I undertook the Rolfing training. In both yoga and Rolfing I am interested in supporting the autonomy of the client to find out what works well for them, physically, emotionally and spiritually. I like to work with all kinds of people and enjoy using touch and movement to explore and develop an innate sense of self. I have 4 children and now live in Tiverton, Devon with my partner (Yoga teacher Nigel Jones), 3 tortoises, 2 horses and a cat, but travel to London twice a month to teach Yoga and to do Rolfing.
