Experience the short salt water cleansing practices of Hatha Yoga – or, for experienced practitioners, the full Shankhaprakshalana.

Friday 31st March & Saturday 1st April 2017 at Satyananda Yoga Centre Birmingham
In these days of cleanses and detox regimes it is refreshing to find someone teaching the traditional Yogic cleanse, a thorough “flushing out”. It is a simple but effective process and I thought I might share my most recent experience for those who have never tried it.
New Beginners Satyananda Yoga Class at Birmingham Buddhist Centre
Satyananda Yoga is accessible to all! It is ideal for complete beginners, regardless of age, fitness, ability or experience and is a great way for anyone to improve their emotional and physical fitness. Yoga is non-competitive and is particularly valuable for stress reduction.
This particular class is suitable for all those who can avail themselves of a Monday afternoon class and has been carefully scheduled to also extend yoga’s many benefits to parents before the afternoon school run.
Yoga isn’t exercise. Because in yoga we work slowly and with awareness in postures and we coordinate breathing with movement. Yoga also involves breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation or meditation techniques. Exercise mainly benefits the body; yoga is about mind and body – physical and mental health.
In the past, we have collected money to donate to charitable organisations both worldwide and locally and this has been done with good heart. However, in the well-heeled sector of society that we all inhabit, giving money to worthy causes is the norm and requires little effort on our part. This year, we are taking more direct action.
We have new beginners yoga classes starting in Birmingham – in Kings Heath, Moseley and Cotteridge:
Accessible to all! All Satyananda Yoga classes include postures, starting from simple joint-conditioning movements, some breathing practice and Yoga Nidra – a deep relaxation, much loved by our students.
