In yoga we are encouraged to cultivate the quality of the witness or drashta. When we first attend a class, this may be the simple observation of physical sensations or the rhythm of our breathing. In time, we are encouraged to delve a little deeper, observing the ebb and flow of our thoughts, noticing our actions and reactions. We may begin to understand that life offers us an endless opportunity for self -inquiry.
Little by little we move from ‘doing yoga’ to ‘living yoga’. By living our yoga practice, we are encouraged to tune in to ourselves, connecting with the innate wisdom that sits deep within us. We learn to trust in our inner voice and can begin to experience life in all its glory. Letting go of habitual patterns of thinking and doing, we open ourselves up to finding a more balanced life.
A practical day, taught in the Satyananda Yoga tradition, we will explore a range of practices from the yogic tradition. The day will include yoga postures (asana), breath practices (pranayama), hand gestures (mudra), chanting (mantra), deep relaxation (yoga nidra) and meditation.
Taught by Claire Thomas, the day will focus on cultivating our ability to observe and experience, learning to trust our instincts and respond with awareness. Suitable for new and experienced students alike.
This workshop will be held at the Calderdale Yoga Centre in Hebden Bridge, West Yorks.
Cost is £35
Payment can be made using the link below or with cash at the studio or by posting a cheque made payable to Claire Thomas.
Please bring a packed lunch, alternatively there are a number of local cafes and sandwich shops within a few minutes walk of the yoga centre. There will be tea, coffee and biscuits available during the day.

Hebden Bridge Picture House is proud to present a Royal Shakespeare Company performance (live from Stratford upon Avon) of The Merry Wives of Windsor.
Down on his luck in the suburbs, John Falstaff plans to hustle his way to a comfortable retirement by seducing the wives of two wealthy men.
Unknown to him, it’s the women of Windsor who really pull the strings, orchestrating Falstaff’s comeuppance amidst a theatrical smorgasbord of petty rivalries, jealousies and over-inflated egos.
Doors open at 6pm, and the screening commences at 7pm. The performance length has yet to be confirmed.
Tickets available online in advance (see ticket link) or on the door for cash from 6pm on the day:
£13 Over 60s and Passport to Leisure Card holders,
£11 Under 26s and FT Students.
Sorry we are a cash only venue as we don’t have a card machine.

BAFTA Award-winning actress Vanessa Kirby (The Crown) and Eric Kofi Abrefa (The Amen Corner) feature in the cast of this brand new production, directed by Carrie Cracknell (NT Live: The Deep Blue Sea).
Wild and newly single, Julie throws a late night party. In the kitchen, Jean and Kristina clean up as the celebration heaves above them. Crossing the threshold, Julie initiates a power game with Jean – which rapidly descends into a savage fight for survival.
This new version of August Strindberg’s play Miss Julie, written by Polly Stenham, remains shocking and fiercely relevant in its new setting of contemporary London.
