Workshops with Godfrey Devereux with Godfrey Devereux
Godfrey Devereux, founder of the Dynamic Yoga Method, and master teacher will be teaching five yoga & meditation workshops in LONDON this October No matter your age, experience, flexibility or strength, Godfrey's teaching allows you to access and enjoy the eight limbs (ashtanga) of classical yoga practice by flowing intelligently from movement into deep stillness, and into the meditative mind (citta vrtti nirodha) explored in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. OPEN TO ALL, FROM BEGINNERS TO SEASONED PRACTITIONERS...
THE PHYSIOLOGY OF YOGA with Godfrey Devereux
This talk will explore how human physiology, especially respiration, constrains and determines the possibilities for yoga posture praxis. To do so we will first need to clarify what yoga is.
£30 - Friday 5th October 2018 19:00-21:00
A FUNCTIONAL ANATOMY OF YOGA POSTURE PRAXIS with Godfrey Devereux
Yoga posture practice is an experiential process, not an academic one. Theoretical knowledge is not required to learn to climb a tree, ski or make love: nor to practice yoga. What is required is an internal sensitivity to the functional and structural feedback of the body. This can only be learned in and through practice. This workshop will present an approach to yoga practice that not only provides a clear understanding of how the body expresses its limitations and possibilities but also how to engage them so as to release, strengthen and nourish the body.
£90 - Saturday 6th October 2018 10:00-17:30
YOGA POSTURE PRACTISE IS AND AS INTEGRITY IN ACTION with Godfrey Devereux
Yoga practice is a journey from separation to unity, from fragmentation to wholeness. This journey depends on more than making shapes, and less than increasing flexibility and strength. Rather it depends upon recalibrating the musculature until it works effortlessly with its natural integrity. This workshop will present the Functional Dynamic of Integrity through which yoga becomes genuinely possible on a mat.
£90 - Sunday 7th October 2018 10:00-17:30
MEDITATION DAY with Godfrey Devereux
This workshop will explore the power of meditation when approached somatically. In the morning Godfrey will guide you into somatic meditations based on physical sensations. In the afternoon you will be guided into tantric meditations based on the pleasure nature of the body. Each meditation will be followed by a question/answer session.
£90 - Monday 8th October 2018 10:00-17:00
THE GURU WITHIN TEACHING SKILLS WORKSHOP FOR YOGA TEACHERS (OF ANY STYLE), TEACHERS IN TRAINING, AND THOSE THINKING ABOUT IT!.. with Godfrey Devereux
This workshop will explore how yoga can be taught so as to access and support the wisdom within. The key to this process is the internalisation of authority. This internalisation requires that the teacher use her position of power without getting caught in the unconscious power mechanisms through which students become alienated from their own judgement and wisdom.
£120 - Tuesday 9th October 2018 10:00-17:30
