These courses offer a unique approach, drawing on not only traditional Hatha Yoga techniques and Tantric wisdom, modern Vinyasa Flow, but also earth-based & indigenous spirituality, to create a truly personal offering.
THURSDAY EVENINGS 7 - 8.30pm in central Exeter
£50 for 6 x 90min classes – advance booking required & spaces limited *
These unique and intimate, crafted 6 week courses are open to those with some yoga experience who would like the chance to commit to their yoga practice & knowledge in a deeper way and build on it each week (something which is hard to do in a drop-in class where there may be different newcomers & levels of experience from week to week).
In addition to the physical yoga practices, these classes will incorporate yoga philosophy & psychology from a range of sources, earth-based spirituality and guided relaxation/visualisations all relating to that week's theme, and each week you'll receive informative handouts, including asana sequences, to help you digest what we cover in the classes. (I will also share a sample of my latest raw chocolate creation each week...Food for body, mind and spirit!)
This is an intermediate level course: you don't need to be superadvanced, but I will assume you are familiar with the kind of asanas & other Hatha techniques I teach (from the Krishnamacharya/Ashtanga/Iyengar/Vinyasa Flow/Holistic Devon School of Yoga traditions) so that we can focus more on flowing asana sequences and less on basic techniques/alignment.
Typically, classes will be more challenging & dynamic than you might find in a 1hr mixed level class, but the energy of the class will be very nurturing, heart-centred and supportive throughout! Sometimes the practices will be more slow & restorative, depending on the particular class theme, and also depending to some extent on the season.
Over each 6 week block, we'll progress through sequences of dynamic grounding, strengthening, balancing, releasing hip-opening and heart opening postures, weaving together practical techniques & philosophies from classical meditative Yoga paths, Hatha Yoga and Tantra, exploring the potential of all these wisdom traditions to help you cultivate health, wellbeing and ongoing personal/spiritual development through personal practice & reflection, learning to experience yoga as an integrated way of being. We will also draw inspiration from other earth-based/indigenous spiritual approaches to bring us into harmony with natural cycles, deepen our connection to the earth, the sky and - of course - our inner selves.
Each 6 week course will be unique, but from course to course, we will revisit certain themes as well as exploring new ones, so the courses evolve in a spiralling/cyclical rather than purely linear way, allowing you to revisit & reinforce & deepen your knowledge & understanding as we progress – this is how I find the learning process works best! Each course will also vary according to the lunar & solar cycles, as weekly themes & the energy of the practices will also draw inspiration from these ever-changing seasons. (To get a sense of how all this comes together in practice, you can see a sample course syllabus at www.holisticashtanga.com/courses
or contact Tania Rose Fox for more information.)* Each time I have run this course so far, it’s been fully booked so, as spaces are limited, priority is given to those who are currently enrolled on a course, or have previously attended one of my courses. However, if you like the sound of what I’m offering & you have not previously studied with me, please do still contact me as I am open to running additional groups if there’s sufficient interest!
