Yoga with Manjunaga, online, 14 May–1 July 2020, from £5 - Book now
Manjunaga was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2005 where he gained his name, meaning ‘kind wisdom’. As someone who’s practised yoga and meditation for 25 years, he has a keen awareness of the spiritual side of yoga practise. In the way that our modern society views yoga it’s easy to see it as an exercise activity for people who look good in lycra. This is so far removed from what yoga should be, but Yoga with Manjunaga reminds us of what it’s really is about.
Join Manjunaga online Monday to Wednesday evenings where he’ll guide you through the process of letting the outside world go, focusing on the breath and devoting some time entirely for yourself, detached from other distractions. The classes are gentle and very approachable for beginners. In particular, the Wednesday evening class is focused on a Yoga Nidra. This is a guided yoga meditation. It falls somewhere between the spiritual worlds of meditation and yoga class, but you can guarantee it’ll help you relax and connect with yourself.
For those worried about the technical side of online yoga, the Yoga with Manjunaga website provides a helpful guide to ‘getting started online’. The guide helps you set up everything needed to get the most out of the class despite the physical distance.
