The part time Level 1 Adelaide yoga teacher training course starts 5 March and the Level 2 on 30 July. This is a chance to connect with John and experience the Purna style of yoga.

Adelaide Yoga Flow, 1 / 237-239 Unley Road, Malvern

Session 1:        1pm-2.30pm Purna Yoga Masterclass with a focus on alignment and cues for potential teacher trainers

Session 3:        5-6pm Philosophy seminar session on ‘The Eight Limbs of Ashtanga Yoga’ $10

In the first session John will take students through a dynamic sequence of Purna Yoga poses. Although the session is for all levels, John will design his commentary to demonstrate to potential teacher trainees how to construct a class offering variations for beginners through to the advanced.

In the break students will have the opportunity for an informal discussion with John about becoming a yoga teacher and ask questions about the part time courses starting in Adelaide in March.

In the second session of this workshop John will guide students into shoulder-stands and onto head-stands – the King and Queen of poses. Students will be offered variations and modifications so all levels can participate and explore their edge.

These incredibly therapeutic poses will be incorporated into a fun sequence. John has done substantial research on the chakras and their connection to our endocrine system.  The sequence balances the chakras, addressing hormonal imbalances, opening the heart and leaving you feeling energised and joyful!

Purna, meaning integrated or complete represents the holistic approach to yoga taught at Byron Yoga Centre – integrating the physical postures with meditation, pranayama and philosophy.

Join John in the third session for the seminar talk on the eight limbs and how to integrate the yogic personal and social code of ethics – the Yamas and Niyamas – into daily life. Discover practical ways that will help you cope more effectively with life’s daily challenge and explore yoga beyond asana practice.

John will also include a discussion on personal meditation practices, how and why meditation can benefit your life. The session will be interactive and led with John’s unique charismatic delivery and humour.

$35 per session or $55 for both.
