Special Weekend Workshop
Postural realignment through the Sivananda class
Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th January

Yoga Asanas work on both muscle length and muscle strength, increased body awareness and energy flow (Prana). These aspects of the practice encourage the natural tendency of the body to find its alignment with gravity. Take a plumb line photo showing changes in your postural alignment before and after an extended weekend asana practice. See the results for yourself!!

             the full weekend and participate in the both the 10.30am and 3.30pm
