Working with our Breath to Fire Our Body
Tutor: Beth Cox
Date: 26th April 2020
Time: 10:00 - 13:00
Working with our breath to fire our body.
In this workshop we will explore how working with our breath can affect our digestive fire.
I will discuss the concepts of Prāṇa and Apāna and how they influence Agni (digestive fire). You will be able to apply the yoga theory discussed during Āsana and Prāṇāyāma practice. We will also look at how our lifestyle can affect the balance of these two forms of energy. There will be opportunities to understand how you can change the balance of Prāṇa and Apāna in your yoga practice through selection of appropriate Āsana and Prāṇāyāma techniques. I will also briefly explain Āyurvedic principles - exploring diet, considering not just the food we eat (Āhāra) but also how we eat (Vihāra - lifestyle). I will suggest resources for you to further your understanding of how your Doṣa (constitution) affects your digestive fire.
BIO - Beth Cox
I first started practicing Hatha Yoga in 1990 and discovered the Viniyoga approach to yoga in 2008 after being injured in a car accident. I found individual yoga lessons extremely helpful during my recovery, so much so, that I decided to train with Paul Harvey to become a Yoga Therapist.
I have now been teaching yoga for 10 years. I specialise in working one to one with people who are looking to apply yoga to aid their recovery or help them to manage a health condition. I also teach individual lessons where yoga is applied to support a person’s lifestyle and develop a deeper understanding of yoga, both on and off the mat.
Over the past few years I have continued my studies of Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras with Paul Harvey, yoga anatomy with Leslie Kaminoff and emotion patterns with Sylviane Gianina. I’m looking forward to exploring The Art of Sāṃkhya Philosophy with Paul Harvey in February 2020.
When teaching, I aim to help people apply the various tools of yoga to their personal situations. I really enjoy sharing my knowledge of yoga practice and philosophy with students in Swansea through individual lessons, in small group classes, and through half-day workshops and a philosophy discussion group.

About Beth Cox
I started teaching viniyoga in 2011. When planning and teaching I adapt yoga to meet an individual's needs, making yoga accessible to all types of people, regardless of age, experience, health or circumstance. My objective in teaching yoga is to help you gain improvements in health, mobility, fitness and clarity of the mind through practicing yoga.
I specialise in teaching individual yoga lessons to students for recovery, support and development. In these lessons I tailor a yoga practice specifically for your needs, whether it is for therapy or personal development. You will be supported with practicing this at home on your own and you will be offered opportunities to develop your own practice as your needs change. I also run small group classes over a course of a few weeks in Swansea.
