3 days of workshops with Simon Low


Friday 7th Nov (9:00-12:00)  “Exploring Stillness” – Yin Yoga


This workshop is currently fully subscribed - please register to join the waitlist
Yin Yoga is a predominantly passive, restorative, non-muscular practice during which we often stay in asana for several minutes, emphasizing breath, stillness, meditative internal enquiry and our relationship with gravity. This approach to yoga is nourishing, deeply relaxing, and highly effective in addressing deep rooted holding patterns in our physical tissues while stimulating the movement and quality of our subtle energies at a cellular level. (all levels except complete beginners)
Cost: 45 euros

Friday 7th Nov (18:00-21:00): Anatomy for Teachers

This workshop is currently fully subscribed - please register to join the waitlist
An intensive workshop offering the key principles for safe and effective anatomically informed teaching. This is essential knowledge for all teachers and students of yoga.
Cost: 45 euros

Saturday 8th Nov (10:00-12:30): Safe + Sound Sun Salutations

This workshop is currently fully subscribed - please register to join the waitlist
Surya Namaskar, the yoga vinyasa of ‘sun salutations’, is perhaps yoga’s most popular approach to dynamic asana practice, but sadly also a fertile ground for wear and tear in our body’s joint complexes, especially those of the shoulders, neck, knees, SI joints and lower back. This workshop offers anatomical knowledge with practical techniques and modifications to develop integrity in sun salutation practice, build strength alongside flexibility, and stability to support mobility, leading to an accessible, fluid, safe, intelligent and empowering vinyasa yoga practice with space for incorporating multiple variations and looping sequences. (all levels)
Cost: 45 euros

Saturday 8th Nov (14:00-17:00): Yin and Anatomy

This workshop is currently fully subscribed - please register to join the waitlist
Yin Yoga offers essential balance to the predominantly yang and muscular approach to asana practice. A slower, deeper, grounded practice, emphasizing the use of gravity, breath & props in long ‘passive’ holds with a relaxed ‘muscle body’, & a more direct involvement of the ‘connective tissue’, facia, ligaments & tendons, & the ‘opening & energetic movement within the joints & bone structure.

In this led practice workshop we will explore Simon’s anatomically sound interpretation of yin yoga, and its many rich benefits for body, mind, breath and brain.  Most students of this approach comment on their improved ability to sit in meditation with comfort & stillness. In addition, students who have previously enjoyed a more Yang dominant practice, have reported that their ‘dynamic’ practice has become easier, more comfortable, more varied & more enjoyable. Nearly all students have commented on their yoga practice feeling more ‘complete’, and more ‘in-tune’ with their lives. (all levels except complete beginners)
Cost: 45 euros

Sunday 9th Nov (10:00-12:30): Yang and Anatomy

This workshop is currently fully subscribed - please register to join the waitlist
Simon’s very popular interpretation of Yang Yoga is a combination of a flowing vinyasa and a broad spectrum of asanas that build energy, flexibility and strength while deeply honouring the natural rhythms and construction of the human anatomy. After essential joint preparation, precision of alignment in asana is balanced by circular and spiral movement patterns, and the conscious awareness and cultivation of chi, or prana, our life force. This practice will be stimulating, energising, nurturing, playful and profoundly effective, while throughout Simon will emphasise the importance of intelligent anatomically informed asana practice. (all levels except complete beginners)
Cost: 45 euros

Sunday 9th Nov (14:00-17:00): Restorative Yoga, Meditation and Mantra

This workshop is currently fully subscribed - please register to join the waitlist
Restorative yoga is becoming more popular every day as it directly responds to the ever-growing need for conscious rest, relaxation, and recuperation for body, mind and brain. Traditionally restorative yoga incorporates a large quota of yoga props to practice. While these are very much recommended, and asana will be instructed accordingly, we often need restorative practice when there are no props readily available. In this workshop we will explore also restorative yoga without props, while instructing the construction of props with everyday household / hotel items. (all levels)
Cost: 45 euros
