Class Fess – 2020

Class fees (Adults 18 up) from 2020 are £7 cash, and £7.15 card payment.

This is the first price rise since I started teaching at the parish hall (many years). There have been about 3 price rises in hall hire during that time, and it’s gone up again in 2020.

This feels like a fair price considering, especially if you look at class costs and the length and content of the class.

Om and Mandukya Upanishad

In yoga Om is often chanted and you may have heard about Om, or Aum. There is also alot of symbolic meaning within the Om symbol as well. The meaning of Om can also be found in the Mandukya Upanishad which is one of the key yogic texts.

I just came accross an online version of the Manukya upanishad and whats more you can download it as a PDF too, for free. Many thanks indeed to Swami Krishnananda. The link is just below;

 

I hope you enjoy reading about Om and the four states of consciousness.

 

Yoga and SAD

Just stumbled accross and interesting article about how yoga can help people who suffer with SAD.

Here is a quote from the article and the link to it.

A research study shows that regular yoga practice improves depression and can lead to significant increases in serotonin levels. Yoga asanas or poses can directly increase the firing rates of serotonin neurons, resulting in increased production and release of serotonin.
