What a start to the first ever Om Yoga show in Glasgow! I am booked on 5 workshops and Yogi Ashokonanda was the first workshop of the weekend. I have his DVDs so I knew I would enjoy his workshop but to be honest I really didn't know what to expect.
We focused on pranayama, mudras and cleansing the body through Kriya Yoga. 90 mins of Kriya Yoga was pretty amazing. I will admit that I struggled to hold my breath when he was telling us to but I stuck with it and by the end of the class I felt transformed. I felt that every part of my body was cleared of toxins and energised.
Yogi Ashokonanda's teaching style was great. He used humour and was very engaging. I particulary liked the way that he ended the class with laughter! I have never taken part in Laughing Yoga and it is something that is highly infectious!
I will definetly be looking out for more of Yogi Ashokonanda's workshops in the future. His workshop was also a reminder that you cannot beat attending a Yoga class with a great teacher, DVDs are fantastic tools but nothing beats being taught in person.
