What is Ashtanga (eight limbed) Yoga? Is there more to this ancient art than stretching out the body? if so, what is it?

MOVING BEYOND ASANA…

Are you curious to learn and practice meditation, breathe better, to bring your awareness to a still and steady point?
To learn and practice Sanskrit chanting?
To explore the 8 Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga?
To have the opportunity to discuss yogic philosophy and how to integrate it into our modern busy lives?
To talk ‘all things yoga’ in order to bring stillness and silence into your life and view things with more clarity and perspective?

Yogic philosophy offers ancient wisdoms and timeless sage advice, on how to go about the business of Being. These are uncannily relevant to our modern world and can provide foolproof answers and wise solutions to most of the issues faced by us today.

The Asana (posture) practice is really just the tip of the iceberg of Ashtanga Yoga. It is one limb out of eight and whilst it is a great starting point for many students, without the other limbs you ‘just ain’t’ truly practicing Ashtanga Yoga.

It is exciting that there is so much more to learn…

Sage Sessions offer accessible exploration into all of ‘the other limbs’ – Yamas and Niyamas, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana, Dhyana and Samadhi. Not only will this help you put more Yoga in your yoga but will be integral in helping you view the world and all in it from a slightly different perspective, without judgement.

The format of our monthly Friday SAGE Session will start with a pranayama (breathing) exercise, followed by a meditation technique, followed by Sanskrit chanting, concluding with philosophical discussion and questions.

The session will be open and inclusive with plenty of opportunity for discussion, practical application and feedback of techniques shared.

The only prerequisite for Sage Sessions is healthy curiosity.

Friday SAGE Sessions run on the first Friday of the month 5.30pm – 7.00pm

Cost is $25 per session or $100 for a block of 5
