Going With The Flow: Integrating yoga into daily life as a mindfulness practice

Teacher: Bruce van Dongen
Cost: 2 days' accommodation + R. 100 surcharge
Dates: Friday 10 February 2017 - Sunday 12 February 2017

bruce-van-dongenThe aim of this workshop is to develop the tools that make it possible to become aware of the ebb and flow of our moods and emotions and to learn to be mindful instead of reactive in our interactions. Using the techniques presented, we learn to train our minds to be centred on the present so that we can flow with the river of life. We will explore Kundalini yoga which is a combination of stationary and dynamic poses that include chanting and breath work and chi kung techniques. These practices develop the ability to be fully present and integrated in our bodies and minds. The workshop will be varied to allow retreatants of all ages and levels of experience to derive much benefit from a very old tradition. Bring comfortable clothing and a sun hat.
