CPD - The History of Aum and Introducing Sound to Yoga Students
Tutor: Wendy TEASDILL
Date: 23rd July 2022
Time: 10:00 - 16:00
This day is designed to be both informative and fun. By using as a framework the history of AUM and sacred sound as found in the set texts on the BWY syllabus, it aims to clarify some of the misunderstandings about sound in yoga practice.
By working through simple, non-threatening usage of sound in asana, pranayama and meditation, and examining the possible reactions and aversions that some people might quite justifiably experience in relation to sound, there is always the option of silence.
Wendy hopes every participant will free to express themselves and not feel that there is any `set' way of using sound in asana - though we will refrain from being all Yoko Ono (ie. free vocals at top decibels ) ... Participants will have an opportunity to look at ways they might appropriately introduce sound and an appreciation of silence into their classes.
