Yoga with Peter Blackaby – ‘In-person’
Saturday November 14 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
At Yoga for Harmony we rarely put a set title to Pete’s workshops, as he prefers to bring us his current interests and teachings,
and often the workshop is influenced by the requests and suggestions of those attending the day.
Pete’s workshops are designed to clarify the principles that underlie asana practice. They attempt to ensure that students will have enough anatomical information to enable them to make intelligent and thoughtful judgements about what is useful practice. Workshop classes are simply about practise, to take the sense of the practice to a more useful level. They are not so much to tell students how to do yoga, but rather to provoke an enquiring attitude to the experience of yoga. There is always room for query and dialogue in these classes, and the clarification of themes.
Pete’s workshops are best suited to teachers and longer term students, and are often 50% theory and 50% practical so bring a notepad!!! If you are unsure of your suitability don’t hesitate to contact me as I am happy to advise.
In the 21st Century Yoga has blossomed into a broad and varied approach that deals with the human condition. It tends to incorporate aspects of the physical, the emotional/psychological and the philosophical. Different branches of yoga will emphasise one or more of these aspects; drawing students to sometimes very physical practices, sometimes very theoretical/philosophical practices and sometimes to psychological practices.
My interest comes from a loosely humanist perspective firmly rooted in the here and now, and my view has shifted over the years from a largely physical view of yoga to a view that encompasses the complex relationship between things, and the way perception influences everything. What do we make of the impressions that come in through our senses, and how do we respond to those impressions? These are the questions that seem important and keep yoga live and ever interesting.
