Meditation & Pranayama essentials

Meditation and Pranayama ESSENTIALS, is the course you’ve been waiting for in regards to learning an easy to understand, no-nonsense approach to the proven health and well-being practices of Breath and Meditation. Pre-modern times, Yoga was defined by breath and meditation practices, and the Indian sub-continent has many different styles and techniques.

In Geoff’s years of practice and study he has fine-tuned some very specific and special techniques which are easily understood and easily practiced. This course gives you clear instructions, intentions and most importantly the “what am I mean to feel and experience” to give you confidence and ability, to maintain your own practice going forward.

  • How to open into your seat and stay comfortable

Strength & Grace

Geoff’s approach to the practice is steeped in the philosophy of Yoga and the deep comprehension that the movement of the body regulates the movement of Prana and allows the body to self regulate and heal. This summer sees us emerge out of a deeply recessed winter; this practice will help you identify techniques to open your deepest doorways in a way that is steeped in self nurture and care. To truly give us the “summer body”. Sometimes this is achieved through Strength, yet always is the foundation of Gracefulness.

We explore all aspects of a Hatha practice including breath, movement and mind focus techniques in order to reset your entire BEing. These sessions are also very interactive’ so if you have a specific pose or awareness in your practice you would like to focus on, let Geoff know!

Geoff Brooks

With a deep comprehension of the intention of Yoga philosophy, coupled with an intimate awareness of the way that energy moves through the body, Geoff guides the practitioner through the maze that yoga shines the light upon in a way that delivers clarity and comprehension.
