What is the essence and purpose of mindfulness and how can Yoga help us to access it?
Join us for a 2-hour stimulating lecture by an inspirational teacher who keeps us connected to the true meaning of Yoga.
The term ‘mindfulness’ is an English translation of the term ‘sati’ that Buddha used in his seminal treatise on meditation. It also means awareness and observation. The cultivation and application of this particular kind of observation is at the heart of the teachings of Yoga.
Dr. Kumar will draw on his deep knowledge of meditation tradition to shed light on the wholeness and richness of mindfulness, from its ethical dimensions to its penetrative power to bring transformation at a DNA level. A deeper understanding of Yoga can help us to deal with mental as well as physical health problems.
This lecture will explore what it really means to be present-at the level of body, at the level of heart, and at the level of conscious, sub-conscious and unconscious minds.
“By becoming an observer inside you can nurture the tree of happiness, the reality of your own mind.”
Dr. Kumar is internationally recognised as an inspirational yoga and meditation teacher as well as an award-winning scientist. His teaching is informed by his extensive experiential and theoretical knowledge, developed through his education in more than 37 schools of Hatha yoga and 50 traditions of meditation, and progressed through decades of self-practice.
Join Dr. Kumar on a 3 day exploration in to the the purpose and practice of postures (Yoga Asana) on a biochemical and cellular level from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th August: Exploring The Technology of Yoga for Optimal Well-Being.

“My experience with Dr. Kumar has been the most rewarding in that he gives not only an intellectual understanding but most importantly of all is the practice and through that practice and first hand experience, his main message is how we come to understand ourselves and our own humanity, in that way we can share that humanity and compassion with the rest of the world. That is why I am very happy to speak on Dr. Kumar’s behalf and encourage you to work with him if you have a chance”. ~ Catriona Brokenshire, Yogacampus faculty, August 2018.
“Profound teaching and guidance from a profound teacher. I would recommend Dr. Kumar’s teachings to anyone who wishes to grow in their journey in Yoga.” ~ Paul Nicholson, Yoga Teacher
