Yoga and Immunity – Sunday 20th June, 3pm to 6pm

As the world deals with the Covid 19 crisis and individuals suffer both from the illness itself and the collateral damage of this pandemic, there has perhaps never been a better time to look at how we can protect our own health and that of our loved ones.

This workshop offers the opportunity to take an indepth look at our bodies immunity – from both a western scientific background AND an eastern energetic background.  We will also look at how immunity changes with age, after illness and during stressful life events.

The current western model of immunity is that there is little that can be done by individuals to improve one’s immunity except at the most marginal level.  However the latest scientific findings are that we can do an enormous amount personally to avoid illness/avoid serious illness and recover quicker if we become ill. 

The workshop format is a short lecture, followed by a 2 hour practice and finishing with a recap and questions and answers from students.

The course is taught over Zoom and will give participants the knowledge and practical skills to help improve their long term health prospects.

This workshop is led by senior Yoga teacher Mike Cragg is suitable for all Yoga practitioners including teachers, except absolute beginners.

The cost of the workshop is £35 and this includes full notes and home practice.  To book please click button below or for further information email mike.cragg@yoga-liverpool.co.uk

Moving Towards Lotus Posture – Opening the Hips – Sunday 11th July, 3pm to 6pm

To some achieving lotus posture or padmasana seems like a hopeless goal.  To others lotus posture is briefly achieved with pain (and possibly damage).

Practiced well, this posture is a wonderful seat for pranayama and meditation.  Correctly done it is resting and allows the spine to extend and thorax to open – done as an “ego pose” it is mentally fatiguing, agitating and can possibly cause injury.

In this workshop we will explore the anatomy and biomechanics of the hips and knees, learning how to correctly and safely open the hips and incorporate the deep knee flexion of this asana.

This workshop is largely experiential with a little theory to allow students to better understand their practice.  Even if our journey never ends at Lotus Posture, the preparation through hip and knee work can be applied to all our Yoga practice.

This Yoga event is led by Senior Yoga Teacher Mike Cragg over Zoom and the cost of the workshop is £35 and this includes full notes and home practice.  To book please click button below or for further information email mike.cragg@yoga-liverpool.co.uk

Physical/Face to Face Courses

“Veriditis” – Yoga for Physical and Spiritual Health – Gladstone Village Hall, Burton, Wirral – Sunday 26th September 2021.

The ancients used the term veriditis (latin = lit. green growth or inner growth) to indicate a lifestyle and way of being that would most optimally support health, wellbeing and spiritual development.  The ancients believed that if we did not attend and nurture this inner life force our life would at best be diminished and limited.

In Yoga we have many techniques that can help us heal our physical, emotional and mental bodies – our inner being and reach our potentials.

During this day of Yoga we will focus on –

  • Alignment and strengthening our body – through standing poses and core work
  • “Leaving our fear behind” – through back bending practice
  • Settling our mind and enjoying a deep quietness – with pratyahara (sense control techniques)
  • Eating for vitality – the myths and facts about food
  • Connecting with the web of life – by visiting the local woods and “forest bathing”

This Yoga event is led by Senior Yoga Teacher Mike Cragg and the cost of the workshop is £45 and this includes full notes and home practice.  To book please click button below or for further information email mike.cragg@yoga-liverpool.co.uk

Vinyasa of the Breath -Sunday 30th January 2022 @YogaHub Liverpool

If your Yoga practice feels stale or you find it hard to make progress in the areas you want – this workshop may have some of the answers!

The “father of Yoga” Patanjali talks of the central role of the breath in unlocking the treasures of Yoga practice such as deep inner peace and contentment. The most important element of our Yogic breathing is that it should “slow and subtle” (PYS 50.2) – but how do we get there?

By using simple science based breathing techniques and pranayama we can access our inner physiology and chemistry, enter a state of profound calm and watch as our Yoga practice effortlessly unfolds.

Prepare to be amazed!  For more details click here.

The workshop is led by Senior Yoga teacher Mike Cragg and costs £55.
