Tutor: Judy Hirsch Sampath

Date: 17th March 2018

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: Light Centre City (Moorgate)

Type of Event: IST Days

Places Available: 0

Tutor: Judy Hirsh Sampath


This experiential body/mind/spirit workshop invites teachers to think and plan less but instead to tune in to the body’s wise domain and trust its innate wisdom and guidance to teach from within. This powerful yet gentle approach is the gateway to healing and creates a steady foundation for yoga therapy.


Judy will guide you through warm ups, asana, pranayama, sankalpa and yoga nidra. She will demonstrate how to incorporate embodied mindfulness into a yoga class, what it means to educate our students, empower ourselves as teachers and how to offer the same to students.

We will be moving the body with warm-ups, asana and pranayama, tuning into the body through mindfulness, silence, stillness snd discussion. We will also explore the nervous sytem through restorative yoga and the power of receiving through yoga nidra.

There will be time to discuss, share experiences and ask questions. 

Judy says: ‘This approach changed the way I teach. My classes are fuller, the students more engaged, and I am witnessing students making independent choices about their practice and gain insights for empowerment and transformation.'



‘During the week that followed, I felt very positive and lots of things seemed to fall into place’

‘I feel an amazing sense of calmness – restored and ready for anything!’
