Focus on Ashtanga Yoga
In provision of yoga Coventry is rapidly evolving, and is almost entirely focused on posture practice. The vinYoga methodology I have developed and continue to build, deals with a lot more than just postures – yoga, if practiced with attention and commitment, can have a great liberating power, by bringing about harmony of our body, our mind, our emotional and intuitive dimensions.
I teach the posture work in the ‘traditional’ format i have learnt in Mysore and the UK, as well as in modern, western style. In my view it is important to open up Ashtanga based Yoga to a broader audience. To provide this broader access, I have developed some lighter practice structures, modified postures and techniques to suit beginners. In a way my method combines Ashtanga Yoga with Vinyasa Krama.
In terms of theory and philosophy the vinYoga approach revolves around the eight fold path described as Ashtanga Yoga in scriptures such as the Yoga Sutra of Patanjali.
The methodology is currently laid out along three major practice streams, shown below:
Our three major streams of practice are:
vinYoga is a learning and teaching methodology, offering yoga classes, workshops, personal tuition and teacher training in Coventry, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and the wider Warwickshire and West Midlands area.
Activities are also developing UK-wide and internationally. I often run workshops and teacher training events in Hungary, more planned for Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Finland…
