Senior Iyengar Teacher, Caroline Coggins, Workshop | 30 Nov and 1 December
Each year Chevron Yoga Centre hosts a workshop led by Senior Iyengar Teacher Caroline Coggins. The workshop is open to all students of yoga and over the three sessions, time and space will be created to quiet the mind and observe what comes from 3 sessions of yoga.
“The word workshop conjures up feelings of grunt and push, and yet this is not what these sessions are about! They are to do with concentrated focus, like a mini retreat in daily life, were time is put aside to pay attention, directing your whole self to a finer point, becoming present to the present. What happens then is that space is made, and our minds, like a pebble dropped into a pool, sinks into that quietness. We come home to ourselves.” ~ Caroline Coggins
