An afternoon workshop in London
Integrated Yogic Practice
With Daniel Simpson
Saturday, 20 July (14:00 - 17:00)
Modern yoga is focused on postures, but other forms of practice are even more powerful. Join us for an uplifting fusion of physical methods and inner inquiry, with practical insights from yoga philosophy.
This holistic workshop includes a playfully challenging postural sequence, traditional breath-work, silent sitting and a little bit of chanting for those who enjoy it. We conclude with a group discussion and Q&A. Our aim is to nurture transformative ways of being.
Yoga is a lifelong process of learning, facilitating growth and conscious change. Going to classes is just the first step - an independent practice makes this part of daily life, clearing mental clutter that hides our true nature. By striking a balance of disciplined effort and letting go, we can see ourselves differently, promoting contentment and skilful action.
We meet in a rooftop pavilion off Brick Lane (in the Truman Brewery's F Block, opposite Ely's Yard). The terrace of our atmospheric practice space has views across Spitalfields. Its stripped-down interior resembles the hall of an abandoned ashram in Rishikesh, where the Beatles got inspired to write the White Album.
Please arrive a few minutes early to start at 2:00 pm.
Daniel Simpson has been exploring yoga in various forms since his first trip to India in the 1990s. His approach is dynamic and fun, combining precision and attention to detail with fluidity (inspired by Iyengar and Ashtanga Vinyasa, among other methods). He also teaches courses on yoga history and philosophy at the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies, at triyoga in London and on teacher trainings.
