Introduction to Viniyoga

A 2 day introduction to the approach to yoga commonly referred to as Viniyoga.

This approach emphasises teaching students according to their individual health, circumstances and interests, so that we can teach safely and appropriately.

As we know 'One size' does not 'fit all'. 

This exploration is a foundation style course which uses authentic teachings to deepen the participants understanding of how we practice and why we practice.

Taken over a single weekend or split one day a month in 2 consecutive months,  this course is suitable for those wishing to deepen their personal understanding of the principles of practice and the  history and philosophy of yoga.  It can offer a secure foundation and space for self-enquiry before going on to professional training as a yoga teacher. However there is no expectation that students joining this course will go on to teach and many enrol for personal practice development.

This course will support you by: 

  • refining and developing your understanding of practice principles in asana and pranayama
  • showing you ways to apply your understanding of practice principles within your own practice
  • supporting you to establish a regular personal yoga practice 
  • offering well informed guidance in the wise and beautiful teachings of the Bhagavad Gita
  • explaining key aspects of Patanjali's study of human psychology in his Yoga Sutra.
