Seasonal Yoga stands for more than simply a commercial enterprise. We wish to offer the highest quality in Yoga, in every aspect from the physiological anatomy and asana training to the philosophical and spiritual development within the course. We stand as true to the tradition of Yoga as possible, and apply those truths to modern life, so that they support change in every student. While gathering wisdom from sources like traditional Chinese medicine, modern western anatomy, nutrition, NLP, asana flow, psychology, etc, we offer the most relevant and transformational teachings we are able to. It is about bringing the incredible teachings of the East into a Western context which is useful, accessible, fun, inclusive and evolving.
It is not about the students learning something new, it is about the students experiencing something new within themselves. We strive to always offer these services with integrity, and high moral standards in every aspect of our dealings.
At Seasonal Yoga we Teach in Harmony with Nature and the Season around us by changing our teaching content to match the Season we are in. We use this to resonate with our surroundings and to come back to balance. It’s therefore important that you study the material in-Season or just slightly before the Season begins. You should also be aware of how Nature around you changes. If March comes around, but there’s still snow on the ground, then stay with the Winter Season Teachings. If the leaves on the trees start to change colour mid July then consider moving into Late Summer. The more attention you bring to the natural flow of Nature and Life around you the more your instincts will naturally tell you when it’s time to change.
We’re also firm believers that Summer is a good time for high-energy classes but Winter’s a time for a more restorative, contemplative practice. It just makes sense to follow Nature around you as it sleeps and recovers, preparing for the start of a new Spring to push forth new growth, that we should too.
