Through practice, presentation, study and discussion we will explore the roles and purpose of Rāja and Haṭha Yoga.
The concepts of Energy, the influence of Mind and the emphasis on Practice have been the continuing focus for Yoga Teachings and Teachers since the time of Patañjali. What are these concepts, how can they be appreciated and utilised in times & cultures very different from their origins?
This CPD day will be an exploration of these themes through practice, study, discussion and reflection, drawing on traditional and contemporary Yoga teachings and practices.
This will be linked to the common energetic principles underpinning Haṭha Yoga and Āyurveda and how they can be applied in terms of recovery, support or developmental roles for the students starting point, potential and goals.
It was when Paul met and worked in England with his root teacher TKV Desikachar in 1976 and again in 1978 studied in Switzerland with both TKV Desikachar and his younger brother TK Sribashyam, that he realised the deeper potential of Yoga through the approach of their father and teacher the eminent T Krishnamacharya.
This led in 1979, after a formal request and acceptance by Desikachar as a pupil immediately following that first meeting in 1976, to a two year residence in South India studying and practising within the traditional setting of teacher and apprentice pupil meeting together 121.
Returning some 30 times over the next 20 years enabled Paul to study in depth, through personal lessons, many aspects of Yoga practice, as well as a detailed exploration of important Yoga and Hindu Texts, along with other facets of the primary Indian traditions such as Vedic Chanting, Vedic Rituals, Indian Vocal practices, Saṃskṛta and Āyurveda.
