The practice of Yoga can bring stability within our mental processes to allow the clarity, or brightness of our inner, innate wisdom to shine through. According to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the practice of Yoga can bring stillness to a fluctuating mind. Yoga enables us to begin to observe unhelpful, critical or ruminating thought patterns, which produce undesirable actions, and gives us the opportunity to take steps to then remove these obstacles to our clear perception.
 
In this workshop, we will be exploring the Yoga Sutras to help us understand the nature of our minds, and look at how we can use our Yoga practise to maintain or improve our mental well-being. We will blend this with recent findings in neuroscience that are confirming how practices such as asana, pranayama and meditation can ‘rewire’ the brain and help lead to a more stable, content and peaceful state of mind.
 
We will be using body movement and postures to bring our attention to the present moment, and begin to unwind the mental tension that gets locked into the body. The postures are straightforward and do not require extreme flexibility, so all levels of asana experience are welcome. We will also practice breathing techniques that balance the nervous system and simple meditations to calm the mind.
