One Saturday per month October 2019 - March 2020
For a small group of yoga lovers who want to dive deep into the essence and inner experience of yoga.
You may already be teaching, drawn to the possibility, or simply someone who adores yoga and feels called to learn more.
I'm gathering together a sensitive group of yoga lovers who instinctively appreciate that yoga is something which occurs inside yourself.
Challenging convention, rules and regulation, this course will open you to a world of possibility, a world of self-knowledge and the unfurling of your own innate wisdom.
Together, we will tap our curiosity, explore the workings of our bodies and minds, trialling different yoga practices and supporting each other's growth.
Expect a shared yet highly individual experience leading you gently but purposefully to the true essence and breathing heart of yoga.
Theory, practice, group and individual work will combine to form a varied and stimulating programme.
At times this may be challenging, the mysteries seemingly too great or requiring a letting go of comfortable beliefs and habits. And at times delightful, moving, hilarious, empowering and freeing in ways you have yet to imagine.
This is a yoga course unlike any other. Your teacher, Julia, is a highly skilled and experienced yoga teacher, trainer and mentor. She is also an energy worker and intuitive with the gift of psychic perception.
Whilst there will be key 'landing points' and an overall structure, Julia will intuitively adjust and evolve the exact content in response to the group.
This is an exciting approach which ensures that the course content, discussion and discovery remain fresh and completely tailored to those attending.
The course is purposely not formally certified*, so that it remains a pure and joyful exploration of yoga, free from the pressure of course deadlines, criteria and assessments. This reflects the way yoga was originally shared and passed along in a small intimate gathering of devotees.
With Julia's extensive experience in practising and guiding others over many years, the course will meet you exactly where you are.
Expect to feel lovingly held and supported whilst being encouraged to go ever deeper into your experience of yoga and to expand its place in your life.
The course will run for 6 months, one Saturday a month on the following dates from October 2019 to March 2020
3 November (Sunday due to studio availability)
Course fee: £125 deposit followed by 6 monthly payments of £55 during the course
You will receive a suggested reading list and in between our meetings there will be suggested areas for enquiry, practice and further research. How much you do is left to your discretion.
Mid course there will be the opportunity for a personal 1-2-1 review session with Julia included in the course fee.
For those (including teachers) who hunger to spend time exploring and delighting in the unseen but deeply felt realms of movement and stillness, this will be a rare and special treat, enhancing your teaching, your own practice and your life.
If you're considering yoga teacher training, this is a fabulous and thorough precursor (it may even lead naturally into a teacher training course!)
However, there's no expectation that you will teach or want to teach, so if you have the desire to learn, explore and evolve with and through yoga then this is for you.
In order to make sure the course is right for you, please send an email briefly outlining why this course and why now. Thank you.
The course takes place in the beautiful spacious Gwills Yoga Studio just outside Newquay. Mats, bolsters, blankets, cushions etc are all provided.
There is lovely accommodation available for those travelling into the county to attend.
Gwills is set in the tranquil Cornish countryside with a large garden, trees and river to enjoy during breaks. We will have a bring and share lunch, with other refreshments provided through the day.
*Course certificates will be issued, which may count towards CPD / IST or towards teacher training depending on your awarding body
