Using the yogic paradigm of the pancha koshas (five sheaths) this popular weekend explores a wider aspect of being than that offered by the thinking mind.

Using a variety of traditional yoga practices Johnny will introduce the pancha koshas which serve as a way of opening up not only to physical and mental aspects of our being, but also energetic, intuitive and spiritual aspects. In daily life we tend to over identify with particular aspects and disregard others. This creates stress and can deny us the potential for joyful living and personal growth. This weekend is designed to create space!
The course begins with soup at 6pm on Friday and ends at lunchtime on the Sunday.
On Friday evening there will be an introductory talk and Yoga Nidra (a withdrawal of the senses leading to deep relaxation and conscious sleep).
Each morning begins with Karma Yoga (selfless service). The morning yoga sessions consist of Pawanmuktasana (a series of gentle movements), Pranayama (yogic breathing) and Antar Mouna (a meditation technique).
The afternoon yoga session will include standing posture work and Yoga Nidra.
An integral part of the weekend will be Karma Yoga. This is not just voluntary work, such as household duties, and work in the kitchen or grounds; as Swami Nishchalananda says,
"it is an important aspect of Yoga not to regard work as a chore, but rather as a tool to increase sensitivity and awareness."
"Johnny Glover has completed our two year Teacher Training Course at Mandala Yoga Ashram. He is trained in both the Yogic and Buddhist traditions and the courses he proposes to give in Samye Ling promise to be an excellent opportunity for those who participate and who want to go deeper into Yoga."Â

NOTE: This weekend is open to everyone. The posture work is slow and gentle and therefore suitable for complete beginners and those with conditions for which strenuous exercise is not advised. Please bring comfortable layers of clothing so that you can move freely yet remain warm. The pawanmuktasana movements can actually lower body temperature. Also please bring a mat, sitting block or cushion and a blanket.
