Yoga Workshops & Courses

"We confuse spiritual life with religious life, which is altogether different. Spiritual life is one eye, religious life is the other eye. These two eyes do not see each other, but together they can see the world. Spirituality means connecting with what is auspicious, appropriate and good in life, by connecting with one’s own inner source of strength. A spiritual discipline indicates a way to improve the human personality." - Swami Niranjanananda


Various day and weekend workshops are held throughout the year and usually include asana, pranayama, meditation, mantra, karma yoga and yoga philosophy. They are held in a relaxed atmosphere and shared lunches are a key part of any day. Student numbers are restricted so that individual attention and support may be given.

‘Shankhaprakshalana , Laghoo Shankhaprakshalana, Kunjal & Jala Neti’ 

The Spring practices of  ‘Shankhaprakshalana, Laghoo Shankhaprakshalana, Kunjal & Jala Neti’ will be done here at The Yoga Room this year on Saturday 24th March.  This is an important part of yoga practice but must never be done without guidance or without a teacher.  It is suitable for both yoga teachers and those Yogis and Yoginis who aren’t teachers but who want to experience the power of these practices.  The advice to yogis is to do this practice twice a year, once in Spring and once in Autumn.

If you are have never done Shankhaprakshalana before then you will only be able to do the short practice of Lahgoo.  If you wish to perform Shankhaprakshalana then you must undertake to keep to the strict diet necessary for a month after the practice.  No such diet is needed for the shorter practice of Laghoo Shankhaprakshalana but if you want to do any of the practices you do need to make Swami Satvikananda aware of any medical conditions that you have.  
 
The day will start promptly at 8.30am.  You must be here by 8.00am at the latest.  You MUST NOT eat anything beforehand.  The designated asanas will be performed plus Shankhaprakshalana or Laghoo.  Afterwards students will have a short rest before completing the practice of Kunjal followed by Jala Neti.  Another rest needs to follow before eating a bowl of kitcheree which will be provided.  If you have never done any of these practices before, then do speak to Swami Satvikananda so that you understand the commitment that you will be making.  The asanas that you need to perform are simple and you will be given a handout before you come to the day.  A diet sheet will also be emailed to you if you are doing the full Shankhaprakshalana.  Don’t hesitate to ring Swami Satvikananda on the landline 01932 872587 if you need more information. You will be thoroughly looked after on the day, nurtured and taken care of.  These are truly great practices to experience and you will feel wonderful, totally refreshed and invigorated afterwards.
