Taking Refuge: Navigating the World with Compassion

During this intensive, leading International teacher Judith Hanson Lasater will focus on giving teachers the skills sets they need to embody yoga on and off the mat with the aim of cultivating a practise that can guide the self and others through what may seem like a stormy time in the world. Judith has taught yoga since 1971 and returns to London every Spring to sold out workshops. Spending the week in this intensive will allow teachers to learn from Judith first-hand about her belief that yoga practise is fundamentally an act of kindness towards oneself.

  • Day 1 and 2- Non-violent communication in teaching as well as a tool for creating self- love and compassion within the self
  • Day 3 and 4 – Concepts from Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra’s that support the theme and impart some important philosophical underpinnings to your practise and teaching
  • Day 5 -Rest and silence – the various stages of tiredness and fatigue and how we can regain some energy or learn to let go and be with our state as “what is” over our expectations of “what should be”.
