About the Workshops - The Four Contemplations

The facts of life: we all suffer from forgetfulness or forgetting our “full-ness”. A tibetan buddhist teaching suggests contemplating the four reminders to prompt us to pay attention, to become an awakened being (sangyé). Lucky for most of us, yoga practice provides an opportunity and the space to explore these simple yet profound but often forgotten fundamental truths. Thee workshops will cover the four reminders and the importance of awareness.

  • precious human existence
  • impermanence
  • karma (cause and effect)
  • samsara (cyclical suffering)

The workshops on both days are split into two parts:

1. Lecture and Meditation session where Cat will discuss elements of the theme and guide through a meditation session.

2. Asana (Sanskrit for ‘posture’ - often referred to the physical practice of postures in Yoga) focuses on the physical practice drawing on Cat and Phil’s wealth of experience in both teaching and practising to break down the elements of vinyasa practice: strength, flexibility and technique.

It’s recommended to attend both sessions on both days; however, there is option to attend any one of the sessions.

About the Open Class - These sessions are open to all inquisitive levels and do not require anyone to have attended the workshops. Unlike the workshops, there is no break for detailed explanations, simply a led flow through a Vinyasa Flow practice.
