Teachers will have a sense of confidence and accomplishment upon completing his training and Jimmy’s unique background creates an experience you will not find elsewhere.

His passion is yoga and teaching students around the world and continues to live his original dream as a singer/entertainer.
In this 2.5 hour workshop we will look deeper in to the 8 Limbs of Yoga with specific emphasis on the Yamas and Niyamas. Through discussion, movement and meditation you will learn about these ethical principles which form an integral part of the yogic way of life according to Patanjali. When we practice yoga on the mat we learn to be aware, calm and mindful. However the idea of yoga practice is to carry this state of being away with us in to our daily lives so we can have a deeper impact on our own lives as well as the lives of those around us. Adapting these ethical principles in to your life can be the foundation for living more skilfully, authentically and peacefully.
This workshop is suitable for anyone who is interested in delving deeper in to the science of yoga both on and off the mat.
Please note that while there will be some movement, there will not be a formal physical practice, so it is recommended that you take a class prior to the workshop should you need it.
