Exploring postures from upon the mat and inversions, with reference throughout to the days theme.

To promote a discussion with members of the group and myself over the mornings practice, a discussion upon all of the elements physical, spiritual and philosophical.
To be competent practising and teaching pranayama.
To have more understanding on how to put a philosophical theme into class plan.

Marketing will be exploring Asana, Pranayama, Meditation and Mantra and how these "tools” relate to and reveal the connection and the union between "our self” and our "higher Self”.
We will use the analogy of Shiva/Shakti – Prakriti/Purusha and the symbol OM to explore our divine connection and how can these energies reveal themselves in our everyday life.
As well as the practical aspects of yoga, there will be the opportunity for a spiritual discussion (Satsang) after lunch.
