IST - Open body, open heart – fulfilling our yoga potential

Tutor: Ade Belcham

Date: 14th October 2017

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: Cooper Hall

Type of Event: IST Days

Places Available: 4

Overall aim

To provide a fresh and simple way to understand the way we learn, act and interact as human beings. To highlight the extraordinary human capacity for learning and to explore how that ability influences how we inhabit our bodies and how we think and feel. This is an exploration of karma, psychology and anatomy all in one story


About the Tutor

Ade’s yoga story is centred around a daily ashtanga yoga practice begun in 2000 and involving many months working with Nancy Gilgoff on the mythical island of Maui. He has been sharing stories about yoga since 2004.


Structure of the day

A mix of tutor presentation, group discussion and practical work, both individual practice and group work. We will touch on topics as diverse as anatomy, psychology and philosophy, in a grounded and practical way using everyday examples to explore key themes. There will be space for laughter, music, poetry and storytelling, provoking reflection and providing inspiration for your practice and/or teaching.


Aims and Objectives

To introduce and explore the patterns and narratives that provide the basis both for how we understand the world and for the way we occupy our bodies. Students will be able to define and identify stories found in various aspects of life and to give examples of helpful, harmful and neutral stories in the context of body and mind.

To review stories commonly found in yoga teaching/practice and consider their usefulness.

Students will be able to describe examples of key stories used in the teaching and tradition of yoga and to identify examples of patterns and narratives arising in their own asana practice.
