John Stirk has been teaching Yoga and Mind-body movement for 40 years. He has recently published his third book: “The Original Body”
John graduated as an Osteopath in 1983 at the College of Osteopaths in London, where he subsequently lectured in Bio-Mechanics and Practical Osteopathy and was made a Fellow of the College in 1995.
The influence of R.D.Laing, with whom he ran body/mind workshops, Classical Osteopathy, B.K.S. Lyengar, Vanda Scaravelli with whom he had personal tuition for several years and Krisnamurti has confirmed his belief in finding it in and for oneself.
John’s interest in the impediments to understanding, compassion and freedom from the self, informs his posture based work which attends to the physical while simultaneously questioning the nature of conditioning, habit and fear in their various guises.
The reality of yoga concerns its depth. The deeper the experience the deeper the reality. Tension is found on the outside and the inside of the body and is also found within the breath and the mind. As tension dissolves we unfold into understanding and realization.
This workshop challenges our potential for working with tension by directly approaching body breath and mind. Participants are invited to pass through and beyond familiar sensations and ideas, and in so doing uncover a profound truth.
