There will be intense hands-on or distant healing and may be some massage (through the clothing) of the affected area .

About Steve Avian

I fell in love with yoga over thirty years ago and she has been a constant throughout my life-changes and life-styles . She is a challenging mistress – yielding and withholding her secrets, melting and remaking me along the way.

Throughout the years I have studied yoga deeply, often with masters and teachers from various styles – Classical Hatha, Taoist, Iyengar, Sivananda. I have also practiced spiritual disciplines from many traditions. I learned a lot from my teachers and, at the same time, I learned a lot by myself . The greatest Guru is the One Spirit within us all.

My pursuits have taken me to four continents. So many amazing people have crossed my path and still do. Teaching was something i was naturally drawn too – even as a teenager I would teach yoga to friends and later, in my 30s, I qualified to teach it with one of the oldest yoga organisations based in the U.K – the Friends of Yoga Society – as my main teacher at the time, Enid Culf, was a member.

In 1997 I started offering classes and workshops in and around the Sheffield area and in 2005 I set up a yoga school to train students to teach, which is now accredited to the Yoga Alliance.

The word “internal” in yoga refers to a kind of knowledge that is inner and subtle. I think of the internal arts as an exploration, an invitation to play and to gain an experiential understanding of our potentials. The natural principles of the inner arts can translate into almost any activity. We can put our discoveries to good use in the world.

Good luck. Play on

Tibetan Yoga Workshop April 2nd & 3rd with Pamela Givens

pamelaCome experience the profound benefits of Tibetan Yoga! Tibetan Yoga, called Kum Nye (pronounced Koom Nyay) relaxes the body and opens up the connection between the body and the mind. This yoga is much different from typical Indian yoga – the postures open up energy blockages in the physical and subtle body system, promoting vitality, satisfaction and joy. Tibetan yoga is an excellent way to prepare for meditation.

In this two day workshop, we’ll work on opening up the throat, which distributes energy throughout the body, lessens anxiety and brings joyfulness; and the lower energy center (chakras), which creates a feeling of stability and a sense of satisfaction. We’ll also work stimulating energy and vitality in the body through yoga and chanting.

Tibetan Yoga and Chanting
Day 1: Throat and Lower Chakras/Energy Centers; Chakra Chants
Day  2: Awakening Positive Qualities with Sanskrit and Tibetan Chants

Workshop time: 10.00am – 4.30 pm

10.30-11.45  Yoga Practice
