Here at Samadhi Yoga studios we are always aiming to offer students more than just the physical asana aspect of yoga. Even if it is the physical aspect which initially draws people to yoga, after some time curiosity tends to build as to what is behind the physical asana, what are the depths to yoga? What sets yoga apart from other physical disciplines?

So we are offering students "Yoga Mala: the study and practice of Yoga". Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning garland. And that is what we intend to do with this course. To weave together all the different strands of yoga, presenting the garland of yoga. Mala beads in use in India

Each weekend will consist of ten hours, Saturday and Sunday 10am to 4pm. We will be covering asana practice, pranayama, philosophy, practical anatomy, up-skilling, and self-care. Each weekend will be like a mini retreat.
