Christine will be part of the teaching faculty on Advanced Teacher Training Course with Lisa Petersen and other faculty in Dublin. The next training will begin in January 2019. For more information contact Lisa Petersen at lisa@nullliving-yoga.ie,see her web site www.living-yoga.ie or see this pdf. This course is unique: twelve modules over one and a half years, open to graduates, teachers and dedicated students of Yoga. Each module has a unique emphasis and theme and is designed so it can be taken individually. For deeper, more integrated learning, we strongly advise you to consider several or all modules. This training is about relationship and how the parts of us co-operate to create a unified whole. In this philosophy, developing along on the yogic path is not a linear process, but a series of overlapping waves, each wave planting a seed enabling the next wave to take root and flourish.

    Spring – around us, as sap rises and new life cycles begin, within we find the desire to move, change and grow.

    In this workshop we will explore our relationship to the ground, using gravity to promote the free-flow of breath and prana. We will re-familiarise ourselves with our original and instinctive capacity for fluid, vibrant, connected movement. In practice this means allowing the clear pathway of the breath to be experienced in the body as the impulse from which true alignment emerges.

    Using standing postures and the sun-salute sequence we will clarify key transitional points in order to create smooth, integrated movement.

    Christine has been practising Yoga for 30 years. She has explored various methods of Yoga, though her initial studies were in the Iyengar tradition. Studying and practising Chinese Medicine has also enhanced her understanding of the body as an energetic system. These influences have gradually been integrated into a deeper understanding of the practice of Yoga. Christine has been particularly inspired and influenced by the work of Donna Farhi – she continues to study with and regularly assist Donna on her teaching visits in Europe and her Advanced Teacher Training Programme in New Zealand.

    Venue Space Six, 6th Floor, Commercial Union House, 39 Pilgrim Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 6QE

    Cost: £65

    CENTRING DOWN

    When we are centred and our weight and the force of gravity moves clearly through the bones to the ground, we create the conditions to experience a profound sense of support and ease and a deep sense of stability through all the layers of our being.

    Clarifying our relationship to the ground is the key and the starting point to developing this stability.

    During transitions we especially need to find a ballast or strong anchor within us to enable us to navigate with ease.

    We will be exploring the art of moving from our centre and how to create this internal anchor, re familiarising ourselves with our original, instinctive capacity for fluid, connected movement.

    We will be working with a combination of floor based Somatic movements and Yoga practices to explore this theme.

    The shoulders, neck and upper body are often areas where we hold a good deal of tension. This is often related to tension held through the thoracic and pelvic diaphragms.

    This workshop will explore how we can begin to let go of these holding patterns by enlisting the support of the heart and lungs and understanding the interplay of the diaphragms with these organs.

    Suitable if you have at least three months experience in yoga with Christine, Padmadarshini or equivalent. This is so you have the basics already for this particular approach to Yoga.
