The Art of Yoga Practice & Yoga Texts Modular Workshops Availability, Duration, Timings, Fees & Booking

All the Live Small Group Workshops are two-day meetings limited to a maximum of five students. However, they are also a specialised learning intensive, so rather than needing to choose which topic to offer, plus fixing and advertising diary dates in advance, each Workshop will be arranged once I have received a minimum of three applications from interested students.

This may sound unusual, but I feel these teachings are best reflected either within the privacy of individual meetings or the intimacy around a small group of students gathering to learn together within a common framework.

Plus this is the process that Śrī T Krishnamacharya favoured when teaching from his home to his adult students. Namely offering each student an individualised studentship through private Yoga lessons and where an appropriate addition, small study groups.

This also reflects the process I undertook with TKV Desikachar at his home in Chennai from 1979-2002 with predominantly private lessons supported by some short-term small group meetings around a single topic.

If you are interested then please do feel free to contact me. From there I can advise you on the current state of the waiting lists, advise you on when the next Workshops may be anticipated and talk over any questions you may have. For example, you may wish to put your name down for several different Modules and I can keep you updated.

Or you may prefer meanwhile to engage in one of the Online 121 eStudy Modular topics, whilst waiting to join a Live Small Group Workshop Module on another topic. This is an option that many students have found complementary and convenient within our modern lifestyle demands.

All the Workshop Modules will offer over 10 hours over 2 days
with Saturdays from 10.30-6.00 and Sundays
 from 9.00-2.00.

The 2024 Workshop fee will be £200 for the two days.
The 2025 Workshop fee will be £210 for the two days.
The 2026 Workshop fee will be £220 for the two days.

The full fee is payable at the time of booking and includes a pre-prepared student workbook, all tuition, vegetarian lunches on both days and all refreshments plus supper on the evening of the first day. Accommodation is not included in the teaching and catering fees.

To book please get in touch with Paul directly. Payment can be made by bank transfer. Please ask for bank details. Confirmation of your payment and place will be provided. All fees are non-returnable and non-transferable. In the case of the course not running, an acceptable alternative or a full refund will be offered.

The Art of Yoga Practice & Theory Modular Workshops Venue & Accommodation

All the weekends are based in the Cotswolds with a country setting and retreat atmosphere.

Cotwolds

Do note that the fees will include all refreshments and lunch and, if staying overnight, evening supper to help with costs. Thus, if you have arranged to stay overnight locally there is no need to incur any further costs, apart from your accommodation, until you leave.

Online 121 Free eMeeting for your Questions

A free half-hour is offered in the spirit of engaging and attending to your questions and offering, as an experienced guide, what I can from my long studies with my teacher. These one-off meetings are free of any future obligation and are merely a means to yatter around Yoga for me to understand your questions better in order to respond more clearly.

If you are interested then please do contact me and from there we can set up a meeting to chat about options or discuss your needs and requirements regarding 121 online eLearning. Follow this link for further information on Free Personal Online Meetings or to arrange an online meeting please use the contact page or email me.
