IST 18/179 Yoga Bodies – perspectives on the body-mind and their application in asana
Tutor: Ade Belcham
Date: 16th September 2018
Time: 10:00 - 16:00
This workshop is a practical exploration of the purpose of yoga asana. It introduces different ways of thinking and speaking about the body-mind under three categories of ‘physical models’, ‘energy models’ and ‘psycho-emotional models’. It includes reference to but goes beyond the boundaries of western anatomy and physiology.
The aim is to better inform the way we practice and teach yoga. We begin by clarifying our goals and motivations. Then by shaping our perspective of the way that asana ‘works’ on the body-mind we can help ourselves and our students achieve those goals.
The day will be a mix of tutor presentation, group discussion and practical exploration involving individual asana practice and group work. The day promises to be a day that provokes reflection and provides inspiration and innovation for your practice and/or teaching.
About the Tutor
Quite a long time ago in deepest darkest Wales, Ade was born on a warm June evening, a child of the moon and the sea. He has lived several lives since then including one as an environmental tutor, father of two and part time nomad. He currently spends his time working as a Rolfer, Craniosacral therapist, and yoga teacher.
His yoga story is centred around a daily ashtanga yoga practice begun in 2000 and involving many months over the years at the feet of the dark queen Nancy Gilgoff on the mythical island of Maui.
He has been sharing stories about yoga since 2004 mostly from a barn in the Black Mountains of South Wales. He continues to do so from his new home in a cowshed in Sussex and via workshops in other UK venues. He loves a good tale!
