Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition
with Billy Doylestillness


In this approach to yoga we emphasize listening to the body. We learn to allow the sensation of the body to awaken and come alive. We live moment to moment in the sensation avoiding all mechanical movement. Each moment the body is new.

This allows a re-orchestration of our energy and instead of the old impression of the body as dull, heavy and contracted, we discover it to be light, flexible and expanded in space, as we felt in our infancy.

When we approach the asana (postures) and pranayama (breathing) in this way they have a completely different quality. The effect is to bring about a deep relaxation in the body-mind, free of patterns and restrictions and to open us to deeper levels of awareness. It brings us to know ourselves in silence.

The yoga classes consist of asana, pranayama, relaxation and meditation. They are mixed ability and open to all levels.
