always learning

Just back from a great conference organised by the British Wheel of Yoga.  Took place at Warwick University – very central location and certainly easy for me to get to.

Started on Friday with lunch – a good chance to meet new yoga people and catch up with some familiar faces.  The afternoon was a session with a great teacher – Lesley Dike – also a physiotherapist, she led a fascinating session about the importance of the thoracic spine.  Learnt loads!!  Then time for supper followed by a session of laughter yoga … was great fun, though I’m not sure it’s really yoga …. certainly a good workout for the face muscles though!

I wimped out of the early morning session so started by Saturday with a leisurely breakfast followed by sessions on a more therapeutic style of yoga from Julie Friedeberger.  She described how yoga had helped her in her own experience of dealing with cancer and led some really worthwhile sessions on how to use yoga to help before, during and after treatment.  A truly inspirational tutor.

Then on Sunday did a session linking yoga to the five senses.

A great weekend that showed my how much there is still to learn!
