Kick start your October Bank Holiday Weekend/Mid-term break with three days of Yoga, nourishing organic food, woodland walks and good company! We are delighted to have Advanced Iyengar Yoga teacher, Jayne Orton, travel from the UK to teach this intermediate level residential Iyengar Yoga weekend. Jayne is the Director of the Iyengar Yoga Institute of Birmingham. She started practising Iyengar Yoga as a teenager in 1975 and has visited the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune over 20 times to study directly with the Iyengars. She started to teach in Birmingham in 1980 and has continued to do so ever since. In June 2000 she was awarded a Senior Level III teaching certificate by the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK) and in December 2011 was awarded an Advanced Junior Level 1 certificate by BKS Iyengar himself. Jayne is the Midlands' most experienced and longstanding Iyengar teacher. She also gives workshops throughout the UK, Europe and North America and conducts teacher training at Introductory, Intermediate and Senior levels. Jayne has a keen interest in Yoga for sports-persons and since 2005 has been Yoga consultant to Birmingham City Football Club. This weekend is suitable for those with 5+ years Iyengar Yoga experience. Numbers are limited to a maximum of 13 students. The weekend includes 12 hours of Yoga, accommodation based on twin room sharing, dinner x 3, lunch x 3, breakfast x 3 and daily snacks of organic fruit and herbal teas. Cost: €475 Euros/£435 pounds sterling. We offer free transfer from/to Shannon Airport. Regular flights from London (Heathrow/Gatwick /Stansted) and Manchester.

I love this blog post. "You do not have to be good". So often, folks have the mistaken belief that Yoga is not for them because they are too stiff, too old, too unfit, too fat, too tall. The list goes on. "All I am expected to do to become “better” is to practice with dedication, with energy enough to burn through reluctance and resistance, with a willingness to learn more about my own self along the path, and with a sense of surrender...."
High recognition for Iyengar Yoga from the Indian government...
