Workshop


There are two voices inside you! One urges you down a trodden path, it leads you to places already travelled, places familiar to your habits. The other path is the path less trodden, it is mysterious and unknown to you, it will awaken your senses, you will need to trust more than just your mind to navigate this path. A times you will be lost and confused this of course is part of it and other occasions you will find yourself in places and situations beyond your imagines this to is part of the unknown path that is available to all and yet trodden by few, why?

Read more... 'When we know better we do better...Learn more with MBT'

There are many contributing factors all of which play there part in their own way, fear, habit, domestication, creature comforts, sensory numbing, diet, lifestyle and sometimes simply being afraid of stepping into our power, wanting to know the how, when the how is none of business! The path is unknown, the how sheds light and makes it known, we can only know it by being it not by knowing it.
Yoga states yoga is achieved when the knowing, the knower and the known become the same thing. Sit with that and allow yourself a treat as you digest it.
This workshop intends to explore the unknown facets of life that call to our wild side, the side we sometimes like to pretend no longer exists as our domestication reaches new heights, but there is indeed a wild nature to all of us, only we are pretending that we are not.
I therefore invite you to this curios exploration into the unknown simply Wild side of life, you can’t prepare for this, but you can allow your mind to relax and open so that the Wild side of you can step forth and do whatever it is it has been yearning to do and be.

Wild love to you all.

 10 July 2016 Sunday 10h30-17h00 – Howard Napper : Yoga for Stress Workshop

Granary Yoga Studio – Milton Keynes

Howard Napper

It is a well-respected view that yoga has the ability to help manage the stresses and strains of our lives. But how exactly does this practice that primarily focuses on the physical lead to so many amazing mental and emotional health benefits?

In this workshop we will delve into a deep understanding of stress and how it can even become something positive. We will also explore many of the proven techniques within yoga that help us manage moments in our lives when stress takes its grip and may leave us feeling overwhelmed.

This workshop doesn’t have to come at a particularly stressful time in one’s life in order for it to be beneficial. As we are all fully aware, the very nature of life is stressful, and it can be of great benefit to anyone to gain an understanding of how some of these simple techniques can not only affect our day-to-day stress levels, but also improve the quality of our life as a whole.

With over 25 years of experience, Howard Napper has become one of the country’s most innovative and respected yoga teachers. Over the years, his work in the field of stress has made him one of the most powerful voices not only within yoga, but also within what has become known as “lifestyle medicine”. He is a best-selling author, a TEDx speaker, and has released 19 successful yoga DVD titles. He is also a regular contributor to many leading health magazines including Yoga Magazine.

9 July 2016 Saturday 10h30-17h00 – David Sye : Yoga Beats Workshop

Granary Yoga Studio – Milton Keynes
David Sye

Yogabeats™ is more than just Yoga, it is pure fun, a practice driven by music and rhythms. The yoga is an eclectic mix of styles designed to accommodate all levels of fitness and ability.

Yogabeats™ uses ‘micro-moves’ rather than fixed postures – continuous movements which do not lock off the muscles or disrupt the blood flow and increase flexibility. These micro-moves originated with David observing how children were unable to hold fixed static postures. David began to adopt and implement the shifting movements within his own practice with startling results and benefits, which are now supported by physiotherapists and body workers.

This workshop is to be held at The Granary Yoga Studio in Brogbrough, J 13 off the M1. Free parking is available. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment.

Price is £65 Early Bird by May 31st, 2016. £70 Full Price.
An optional vegetarian lunch of nourishing soup will be served for £10 which will go to Transitions UK Charity. www.transitionsuk.org
£65 Early Bird before May 31st. £70 Full Price.

Enquiries with me please Admin@MindBodyTribe.com.

19-22 May 2016 Thurs (4 Days) – Shaura Hall : Yoga Therapy for Addictions

Yoga Buddies ShauraStudio – Milton Keynes

… another opportunity to dive into the world of sociology, psychology, genetics, neurobiology, and of course, practice and learn population specific yoga therapy techniques.

Yoga is a remarkable practice that builds self-awareness, strength, clarity of mind, and resilience. Many of its practices can be used as coping mechanisms to overcome personal difficulties. By clearly understanding how yoga promotes these psychological and physical changes, yoga teachers can tailor practices to support people who are addicted to substances and help prevent relapse. When we combine specialized yoga practice with mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques (CBT—a common psychological approach in addictions treatment), we can develop a method of healing that supports the whole person. This three-tiered approach—physiology, psychology, and behavior—we can greatly enhance the likelihood of preventing relapse and overcoming addictions.
In this training you will learn how to use integrative yogic-based approaches to addictions that will allow you to work with clients privately, in clinics, and in group settings. In particular, we explore the teachings of Yogi Bhajan with regards to ‘keeping up spirit’ in the face of adversity.
