Celtic Yoga: an Introduction
The workshop will be a practical introduction to a Celtic approach to yoga, including yoga nidra, chants and poems, asana flow, song, story and pranayama, honouring the earth and drawing on the spiritual treasure house of our Celtic heritage.
This workshop will introduce you to Celtic Yoga, a school of yoga aimed at re‐establishing a balance between East and West, between what we look for outside of ourselves and what we find when we come home, through elementally integrated yoga for body, heart and soul, incorporating movement, breath, story, poetry and myths drawn from the indigenous spiritual treasure house of our Celtic heritage.
To practise Celtic Yoga is to be fully rooted in the earth and enraptured by life. Celtic Yoga calls us to be fully alive, and to voice the song of the breath in the life of the body, in deep connection with the earth, and in honour of her. Celtic Yoga invites us to come home to taste the honey of our own spirit’s knowing: to be nourished by the stories and poetic traditions that grew from our own islands, in in celebration of life here. It is an approach to yoga as an experience of hospitality. Celtic Yoga invites us to rediscover how to live a life that is fully alive in a very practical sense to the spiritual wisdom of the Celtic world; to encounter a life in which in everything is celebrated as sacred: each breath, every movement, each feeling of heart, and the thoughts and flights of mind and soul, are welcomed into this yoga of homecoming.
The workshop will be a practical exploration of a Celtic approach to yoga, including yoga nidra, chants and poems, asana flow: moving and breathing from the heart, song, story and pranayama. Uma and Jack will also be teaching a longer Celtic Yoga workshop during the day on Friday 6 November and the afternoon of Saturday 7 November.
