What I'll take from today's yoga postgrad workshop:- Underpinning the true purpose of yoga - to develop a relationship with the Self that exists deeply within. Loved the relaxations, especially 'Waves of Peace'. The pancha koshas provide us with a road map for better understanding of our psychological and spiritual development.
The Advanced Practioner course has dramatically increased my awareness of the impact of movement and postures at each of the kosha levels. My practice is now much richer. I have a new toolkit to manage life's challenges. I am much more aware of the koshas in everyday life and have become a witness of reaction, behaviours and motivations. I know have a choice whether to accept these changes or redesign them if necessary.
As a yoga teacher, the course has developed my skills in using language to enrich the practice for students.
I enjoyed the challenging yoga moves with Padma before and after lunch. It was a beautiful day for me - an opportunity to take care of my wellbeing and remind myself of good practice that I can do at home, with kindness to myself.
As a Dru Yoga teacher I have loved challenging myself to learn something new. The fun uplifting dance of Santosh has given me confidence and renewed energy.
I enjoyed the waves of peace relaxation; lovely! Loved the kosha talk and flowing tree and pear tree. Loved the kosha talk and flowing tree and pear tree! The opportunity simply to 'be' in a class, rather than analysing and reflecting on teaching style, alignment points etc. The workshop was enjoyable, relaxed and designed to nurture us!
What I enjoyed the most was learning the beautiful EBR 8.
I have been inspired by all the tutors. The course has been transformative for me. I have made changes - it has made these possible.
A lovely day, relaxing, informative, fun, happy. Thank you
I enjoyed the energy and enthusiasm of the teachers and the positive vibe. I love learning new things. The workshop was excellent: enlightening and fulfilling.
I really enjoyed the activations. The relaxation was particularly good. The segmented vitality sequence - very useful technique. I also enjoyed the simplicity of the flowing tree sequence. I enjoyed my day practicing Dru Yoga with a lovely group of people. Thank you Padma, Anne, Sue and Bob.
I liked the warm-up - the twist, my era! It was a good venue; comfortable and nice choice of refreshments. The workshop was lovely, gentle and supportive. Reaffirms why I love yoga.
This course has made me feel calmer, more in my body and more at peace with myself. I’ve discovered more about how my body works in these two weeks than in my four years of dance training!
If I could tell myself one thing when I started the course, it would be to Believe. To believe in me, in the training, in the higher goal. The course has given me confidence in myself and shown me that I know more than I think, and am more capable than I ever thought. Inspiring individual both tutors and students have given such support to me and it has been truly a life changing experience.
Snowdonia is a great place to start your journey. The tuition and support team of previous students are so motivating that you feel totally supported in achieving your own goals.
Well prepared. Well thought out. The sharing of tasks between Imogen and Anne went well. Lovely people.
What I'll take from this postgrad yoga workshop today:- integration of movement and emotions and the affirmations. Also developing asana work at a different pace.
I enjoyed the whole experience of the Karma Yoga retreat. Great programme for volunteers. I felt appreciated for work done. Felt that everyone worked as a team. Teachers on yoga retreat were great teachers.
The venue is stunning. I felt refreshed and inspired to come again to Karma Yoga retreat in near future. I am considering going on Foundation course and possibly teacher training course
Call back your power and fly!
DYTT in a beautiful safe space in which to explore body and mind and come out sparkling! Peace of mind, awareness, grace and a sense of belonging are just a few of the results.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Leaving feeling alive, grounded and rejuvenated.
A wonderful way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Taking time out from busy schedules and just pausing to take care of myself and be in the moment. I feel very calm and centred.
A great confidence builder/giver. A place to feel loved and nurtured. I felt the benefit I gained from working with others was fundamental and invaluable to the start of my learning process.
What I'll take away from today's postgrad workshop:- sharing with other yoga teachers from other yoga schools of yoga. Great explanation of the koshas and I'll add Salutation to the 4 Directions to my lessons.
I liked the gradual building of positions into a sequence, so that you felt you had mastered each position before it became a sequence, which was very relaxing and confidence building.The workshop overall was friendly and welcoming, whatever level you are, whether you are a beginner or teacher. I was able to achieve positions I previously hadn't been able to because of the slow, precise instruction.
Taking this course has helped me to find balance and harmony in my life. No longer buffeted by the opinions and behaviour of others, I have been able to find my true self and be guided by achieving my true self in my actions, feelings, words and thoughts. This has brought me resilience. I like myself (me) far more. This light is shining and I know it is affecting others in a positive way. Don't look externally for what you desire, the answer lies by looking within. This course will give you that.
A Dru workshop is always a joy and a treat. Total rejuvenation in a bite sized piece!
Starting my journey on the Dru Yoga Teacher Training Course was like all my dreams coming true and I cannot wait for the next module. Being amongst supportive, like-minded students and tutors was inspiring and confirmed to me that I can do this!!
