Workshops
Based around themes, our workshops are for those who want to advance their practice. Lasting from two to five hours, the themes range from practical subjects such as science and anatomy to the more esoteric practices such as meditation and relaxation, mantra, and pranayama. Yoga is such a vast subject (it is 5000 years old, after all!), there is always something new to learn, regardless of how many years you have been practising.

Mythic Flow Workshop - Agni, God of Fire Saturday, 5 January 2019, 13.30-17.30 In this 4 hour New Year workshop, we will be exploring Agni, the God of Fire and Divine Illumination. It takes real hard work and commitment to follow through with any resolution (called Sankalpa in Sanskrit), and find your dharma (heart’s desire, reason for being). We will begin with a meditation to open us up to our heart's desire for the New Year. We will then work with affirmations, asanas, and mudras, to help us to connect to our inner strength. A strong, slow, core-centred vinyasa flow will ignite our power, to create heat, to burn away the old, and make way for the new, unshakeable, confident you. Look out for a visit from Kali and Durga too! We will finish with a meditation on strength, mantra, and gorgeous sweet savasana with specially blended oils... Healthy snacks will be available in the lounge before leaving. Expect to sweat, to laugh, to work hard, but also leave to renewed! £35.00
Anatomy & Physiology Applied to Yoga A Two Day Immersion with Doctor Yogi Saturday 30 & Sunday 31 March 2019, 10:00-18:00 For yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainees or yoga practitioners with at least a one year consistent practice. Day 1: 10.00 – 13.30 and 14.30 – 18.00 Day 2: 10.00 – 13.30pm and 14.30 – 18.00 14 contact hours In this two day immersion we will explore in detail the anatomy and physiology of our body applied to practising and teaching yoga. All the areas covered are related directly back to the asana practice. The sessions are interactive and experiential with lots of group work and there is strong focus on using anatomy to make asana practices as inclusive as possible. A detailed manual is included and there will be homework to promote personal integration. The immersion is ideal for those with an established practice, who want to learn more about the human body, go deeper in their yoga practice and develop alignment cues that are accurate and inclusive. We will explore anatomy to a depth that is appropriate for teaching yoga. By the end of the two days you will feel inspired and have the confidence to analyse any yoga asana with a clear understanding of the key actions and alignment principles and how to work with your own unique anatomy and that of your student. An Introduction to Intelligent Movement Principals An introduction to muscle looking at its structure and function and how we can apply the knowledge of stretch reflexes to deepen our practice The structure and function of bone and joints looking at both the importance and limitation of alignment and what limits our movement How a knowledge of fascia can impact our movement on and off the mat The Nocebo Effect and choosing empowering language What causes muscle tightness Flexibility vs mobility Anatomical language and how this can help us to remember the names of some of our muscles. A Detailed Exploration of the Lower Limbs An exploration of our feet and ankles looking at their structure and function and how we can apply this knowledge on and off the mat Why our knee joints may be vulnerable to injury and how to support them A detailed look at the hip joints focusing on what makes each of us so unique Piriformis Syndrome. A Detailed Exploration of the Upper Limbs The importance of shoulder joint and girdle mobility and stability in our yoga practice An evidence-based approach to Shoulder Impingement Hyperextension of the elbow joint Why wrist pain is so common in yoga. A Detailed Exploration of the Spine An exploration of our pelvis and sacro-iliac joints and how to keep this area supported during our asana practice An evidence-based approach to back pain and prolapsed discs The anatomy of our core musculature Increasing thoracic spine mobility Supporting our cervical spine during inversions An evidence-based approach to releasing neck tension. The Science Behind Why Yoga Makes Us Feel So Good How yoga impacts our nervous system and relieves stress Yoga a breath-led practice Yoga for cardiovascular health This immersion counts towards CPD requirements for Yoga Alliance US members (14 contact hours). “The workshops with Andrew were fantastic. I really got so much from them. My own practice and teaching has become so much more informed." Kylie P “For anyone practising or teaching yoga who is keen to increase their practical understanding of anatomy within yoga I can't recommend Andrew's training enough. Really accessible, inspiring and enjoyable." Anna T After originally training to become a doctor, Andrew moved away from western medicine to pursue a career as a yoga teacher, massage therapist and anatomy teacher. Andrew has been practising yoga and meditation for over 13 years and teaching strong, grounding and inclusive classes since 2009. Andrew combines all of his skills to teach anatomy and physiology on Yoga Teacher Training courses across London and internationally. His teachers include Hamish Henry, Paul Dallaghan, Eileen Gauthier, Kristin Campbell and Anna Ashby. For more information visit: www.doctor-yogi.com

Mythic Flow Workshop - Agni, God of Fire Saturday, 5 January 2019, 13.30-17.30 In this 4 hour New Year workshop, we will be exploring Agni, the God of Fire and Divine Illumination. It takes real hard work and commitment to follow through with any resolution (called Sankalpa in Sanskrit), and find your dharma (heart’s desire, reason for being). We will begin with a meditation to open us up to our heart's desire for the New Year. We will then work with affirmations, asanas, and mudras, to help us to connect to our inner strength. A strong, slow, core-centred vinyasa flow will ignite our power, to create heat, to burn away the old, and make way for the new, unshakeable, confident you. Look out for a visit from Kali and Durga too! We will finish with a meditation on strength, mantra, and gorgeous sweet savasana with specially blended oils... Healthy snacks will be available in the lounge before leaving. Expect to sweat, to laugh, to work hard, but also leave to renewed! £35.00
Anatomy & Physiology Applied to Yoga A Two Day Immersion with Doctor Yogi Saturday 30 & Sunday 31 March 2019, 10:00- 18:00 For yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainees or yoga practitioners with at least a one year consistent practice. Day 1: 10.00 – 13.30 and 14.30 – 18.00 Day 2: 10.00 13.30pm and 14.30 18.00 14 contact hours In this two day immersion we will explore in detail the anatomy and physiology of our body applied to practising and teaching yoga. All the areas covered are related directly back to the asana practice. The sessions are interactive and experiential with lots of group work and there is strong focus on using anatomy to make asana practices as inclusive as possible. A detailed manual is included and there will be homework to promote personal integration. The immersion is ideal for those with an established practice, who want to learn more about the human body, go deeper in their yoga practice and develop alignment cues that are accurate and inclusive. We will explore anatomy to a depth that is appropriate for teaching yoga. By the end of the two days you will feel inspired and have the confidence to analyse any yoga asana with a clear understanding of the key actions and alignment principles and how to work with your own unique anatomy and that of your student. An Introduction to Intelligent Movement Principals An introduction to muscle looking at its structure and function and how we can apply the knowledge of stretch reflexes to deepen our practice The structure and function of bone and joints looking at both the importance and limitation of alignment and what limits our movement How a knowledge of fascia can impact our movement on and off the mat The Nocebo Effect and choosing empowering language What causes muscle tightness Flexibility vs mobility Anatomical language and how this can help us to remember the names of some of our muscles. A Detailed Exploration of the Lower Limbs An exploration of our feet and ankles looking at their structure and function and how we can apply this knowledge on and off the mat Why our knee joints may be vulnerable to injury and how to support them A detailed look at the hip joints focusing on what makes each of us so unique Piriformis Syndrome. A Detailed Exploration of the Upper Limbs The importance of shoulder joint and girdle mobility and stability in our yoga practice An evidence-based approach to Shoulder Impingement Hyperextension of the elbow joint Why wrist pain is so common in yoga. A Detailed Exploration of the Spine An exploration of our pelvis and sacro-iliac joints and how to keep this area supported during our asana practice An evidence-based approach to back pain and prolapsed discs The anatomy of our core musculature Increasing thoracic spine mobility Supporting our cervical spine during inversions An evidence-based approach to releasing neck tension. The Science Behind Why Yoga Makes Us Feel So Good How yoga impacts our nervous system and relieves stress Yoga a breath-led practice Yoga for cardiovascular health This immersion counts towards CPD requirements for Yoga Alliance US members (14 contact hours). “The workshops with Andrew were fantastic.
