Summer school message from Swami

Dear Yoginis and Yogins,

Our first Summer School has been great. All the teachers, Uddhava, Ben,Hema and Kim have really given wonderful classes that everyone has enjoyed.

We've so far made £700 towards our advertising and Mukti has raised nearly £300 thanks to Hema for the drinks and Kadambari for the bags.

Slight change of plan for this coming Monday - our last Summer School evening for this year: I will be taking the class instead of Arjuna.

Arjuna is deep up to his elbows in getting pumps working and water flowing on the new retreat centre in Wales that he and Lynnie will be running.

We need that water if we're all going to be going down there to enjoy the peace and quiet of the Pantglas valley, so I encouraged him to stay and finish the job!

New yogi recruits needed

Dear Yoginis and Yogins,

Please let us know if you have anyone interested in the next TYA Foundation Course in Reading.

The course will start on 17th October and all the dates are now available. The Yoga Foundation Course will now be offered partly in attendance (5full days) and as distance learning. We have done this as a way of reducing the time that people have to commit to being away from home(particularly women, who form 99% of the course participants) and therefore we are able to reduce the price and accomodate this changed financial climate, make it more accessible to a greater number of people.

The total cost of the course is now just £450. The very high quality of the course has not been diminished in any way and this new way of participating gives students an opportunity to engage with the material in a very personal way.

Remember, this is a course for those wishing to deepen their own practice and expand their knowledge of Yoga. It is also the first level of the TYA’s Teacher Training Course.

We will be sending you some new leaflets for the course at the beginning of September.

In peace, Uddhava
