Yoga Mind Body & Soul
Posture, meditation & Reflections
Yoga Mind Body and Soul
Our ‘Yoga Mind Body and Soul’ experiences include posture work, meditation and reflections on yogic philosophy and what that might mean for you – ideal for both newcomers and students wanting to deepen their practice.
Mike Buckle leads these sessions. They can be booked individually but are also form a series exploring three different topics on the vast subject that is yoga. Each session will start with a classical hatha yoga practice, including a brief pranayama practice and guided meditation. They will conclude with a deeply relaxing, transformative sound bath session……..a chance to truly relax, and at the same time experience the healing vibrations of sound therapy.
