Mudra & Meditation - a Retreat at Holland House
with Ranju & Dave
20th - 23rd Aug 2018
A 4 day residential retreat at Holland House, Worcestershire
(the 4 days are mon-thurs, but we recommend you arrive on Sunday evening to begin first thing Monday)

This retreat will focus on the mudra and meditation using ideas from  the yoga sutra and the hatha yoga pradipika. We will include a mix of theory and practice, with the emphasis on practice, and will include periods of seated meditation and the practice of the principal kaya mudra. The retreat is suitable for teachers as CPD or for keen students wishing to deepen their practice and understanding.

We will be running this retreat alongside a small training group on our teacher training programme. The practices led by Dave or Ranju may also be shared with the training group for some of the practice sessions. The training group will be studying the Bhagavad Gita and so we will be watching the Mahabharata by Peter Brook in the evenings. This is entirely optional.
