A Holistic Approach.
“Arjuna, those who eat too much or eat too little, who sleep too much or who sleep too little, will not succeed in meditation. But those who are temperate in eating and sleeping, work and recreation, will come to the end of sorrow through meditation.” Krishna talking to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita.
The Devon School of Yoga’s Holistic approach believes that we are all here to find ways to express our own unique individual creativity.
Attending a weekly class is a great way to begin a yoga practice but it is when we begin to regularly practice on our own at home that we begin to make real progress. The first step is to make a little time and space in our daily routine to begin our practice.
In this article, Devon School of Yoga teacher James Russell, explores daily yoga practice and gives his advice and encouragement for a successful approach.
Keeping classes live.
During the Pandemic, many people resorted to learning yoga online. At the Devon School of Yoga, we believe that live classes are essential for students and teachers.
“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates.
On the Devon School of Yoga courses we always include a residential experience for our students. Part of this experience is to enjoy wholesome, nourishing, quality, freshly prepared food. Andrea Guest, the school’s main residential cook has a growing reputation for her love of producing delicious, nutritious and balanced meals.
