22nd October 2022
at The Billingshurst Centre

CPD- KRIYA YOGA _ the yoga of action

Tutor: Andrew Charles CURTIS-PAYNE

Date: 22nd October 2022

Time: 10:00 - 15:45

Location: The Billingshurst Centre

Type of Event: CPD

Places Available: 7

The purpose of this day is to reintroduce teachers to the three important concepts presented in chapter 2 of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras 2.1. Tapa, Svadhyaya and Isvara Pranidhana.

As well as the themed asana practices, we will explore these ideas, how we can apply them to our own practice and how to use them to inform our teaching, bringing new ideas and new life to these ancient tools.

This is especially relevant in the current situation as a means for teachers to support themselves, and how we can maintain the support we offer to others through these changing times.

 Andy Curtis-Payne has been a yoga teacher for 30years and is now Chair of The Society of Yoga Practitioners.  He was appointed a teacher trainer in 2006 by TKV Desikachar and has also undertaken further specialist training in Yoga Therapy.  He continues to have regular study with senior teachers in India at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram

About Andrew Charles CURTIS-PAYNE

Andy has been practicing and teaching Yoga for nearly 30 years, initially attending a weekly evening class he quickly found himself responding to the practice of Yoga. He then met Gill Lloyd and attended her classes and was encouraged to enrol on a BWY teacher training course run by Gill and her colleagues Sandra Sylvester and Sarah Ryan. Following graduation from the BWY diploma course Andy was introduced to Paul Harvey and enrolled on his one year Viniyoga Britain Foundation Course. Inspired by the teachings of TKV Desikachar he then proceeded to the four year Viniyoga Britain Practitioner Programme. It was during this course that Andy first visited the Krsnamacarya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai, South India where he met and was taught by TKV Desikachar among others. This visit was the first of twenty such visits Andy has made to further and deepen his practice and understanding of Yoga. During this period Andy was privileged to teach at the the Zinal European Yoga Federation event in Switzerland and at the Dutch Annual Yoga Convention. He also attended training in Yoga Therapy in Piesendorf, Austria over a two year period. Andy has taught at the BWY Annual Congress on several occasions and in recent years represented the teachings of TKV Desikachar at the World Yoga Festival, Nr. Reading in Berkshire. Andy has taught on four Yoga Teacher Training courses and is about to embark on a fifth, he divides his time between teaching one to one yoga and the therapeutic application of yoga from his studio in Dial Post, West Sussex. He also offers on-going training and support via Zoom classes online and CPD for BWY. He has presented on the therapeutic application of yoga at the British Psychological Society in London. Andy regularly works with key faculty at the KYM in Chennai via Skype and Zoom classes and his teacher in the UK is Paul Harvey. He is committed to using yoga as a support to daily life, a means to heal ourselves and , ultimately, to realise our highest, natural potential.
