    10.30 am to 1 pm: Part I – Live Upside Down

    Sunday May 12

    10.30 am to 1 pm: Part II – Four Goals (Puruṣārtha) and 4 Stages of Life (Ashrama)

    Puruṣārtha literally means “object of human pursuit”. It is a key concept in Hinduism which refers to the four main goals or aims of human life. The four puruṣārthas are Dharma (righteousness, moral values), Artha (prosperity, economic values), Kāma (love, desires, psychological values) and Mokṣha (liberation, spiritual values).

    Ashrama (āśrama) is one of four age-based life stages discussed in ancient and medieval era Indian texts. The four ashramas are: Brahmacharya (student), Grihastha (householder), Vanaprastha (retired) and Sannyasa (renunciation). The Ashramas system is one facet of the Dharma concept in Hinduism. It is also a component of the ethical theories in Indian philosophy, where it is combined with four proper goals of human life (Purusartha), for fulfilment, happiness and spiritual liberation.

    Open to all levels, beginners are welcome!
    Tuition: Single Session 40€ — Full series (2 sessions) 70€

    Masterclass Weekend with Adam Hocke

    Saturday June 8

    10.00 am to 12.30 pm : Bigger Backbends for Everybody: Techniques for Physical and Emotional Expansion

    Does advanced mean inaccessible? Do backbends really ‘open the heart?’ In this workshop, learn how to make vrishikasana (scorpion pose), natarajasana (dancer pose), and Eka Pada raja Kapotasana (full king pigeon pose) and others work for you. Develop the strength and awareness to maintain the integrity of your centre and learn modifications and propping strategies to happily enjoy these tough postures and explore their emotional resonance. This workshop is suitable for those with happy backs, some practice experience, and comfort in being upside down with the assistance of a partner or the wall.

    2.00 pm to 4.30 pm: Yoga Self-Care for Everybody: Revolutionise your Practice 

    Are you using your yoga practice as best as you can to care for yourself, or are you just doing what the teacher tells you? In this workshop, you will find out what self-care actually is and how you can practise it in yoga through simple changes of intention and awareness in your flow and standing postures. You will explore new techniques of self-massage, no-fuss restorative postures, and simplified meditation. You will learn how to turn self-practice or any yoga class of any style, even a sweaty level 2-3, into an opportunity for care and compassion. Open to all levels.

    Open to all levels.
