    A Day of YogAsana and Meditation with Granville Cousins on Sunday 11th of May.

    Join Senior Yoga and Meditation Teacher Granville Cousins on Sunday 11th of May 2014 at Pure Yoga Cheshire.   
    We are thrilled to host Granville again in this special event where he will share some of his immense knowledge of yoga. One of the most renowned and respected teachers in the North of England, Granville has been teaching Yoga for over 20 years in Britain, Ireland and internationally. We are very lucky to have him with us in Macclesfield.

    Sunday morning
    10:30am to 12:30pm

    During this morning session Granville will be guiding you through a sequence of postures to bring freedom to the spinal column, build strength, stamina and co-ordination. These postures are mainly standing poses and are practiced in a particular way of stepping into and out of the postures. This particular method is designed to create less loading on the muscles and joints in the back and have proved to be very beneficial to those who enjoy a strong yoga practice but who may have developed some postural issues in this area. The morning session will conclude with inverted poses including Headstand and Shoulderstand.

    Sunday afternoon
    13:30pm – 15:30pm

    For the afternoon session we will be practicing a more gentle form of yogAsana postures. These are done in a more passive way and the asanas are held for a period of 3 to 5 minutes. We will be working on the Hip Series of postures which prepare the pelvic area and lower spine for sitting postures and meditation. There will be a guided meditation period with an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session.

    Cost is £35 for the whole day.
