Send by emailSend by email
Friday 13 July 2018 to Sunday 22 July 2018
9 days
3rd retreat of 3
with Nick Edge, Swami Krishnapremananda and Maha Sattwa


18-day course over 4 months including 3 retreat periods from April - July 2018

Course Dates: 11-15 April 2018, 23-28 May 2018 (including Bank Holiday) and 13-22 July 2018

This is the third and final of the three retreats, and participants need to do all three, as the practices are developed from earlier stages taught on the previous retreat. 

This is a new and comprehensive course giving a systematic training in the core Hatha Yoga practices of Pranayama, Mudra and Bandha. They provide a link between the physical practices of asana (postures) and the deeper meditative practices, stimulating vital energy and inducing an alert stillness within - opening us up to insight and wisdom.

It is suitable for both yoga teachers who wish to deepen their knowledge and, more importantly, their practical experience of these core practices, and also for sincere practitioners who wish to go deeper in their practice and understanding.

The course prospectus gives full details of the course. The application process is given under the April 11-15 2018 dates - http://www.mandalayoga.net/ashram-courses

This course will be an invaluable opportunity to explore and deepen your understanding of these core practices, both in theory and practice, so that they can enrich your yoga practice. By the end of the course, you will have been exposed to a comprehensive range of pranayama, mudra and bandha practices, and experienced at first-hand how they induce meditation. Furthermore, you will have gained the understanding as to how and when to use them as part of your regular yoga practice.

The costs given below apply for the whole 18-day course. For more information see the course prospectus, and to apply, see the April dates.
