‘Sensitive to the whole body…’
One of the Buddha’s pith instructions. What does it mean to us? How can we become more sensitive to the life of our body and breath?
In an exciting new development for the Centre we are offering a range of classes that integrate yoga and other body based practices with our meditation teaching programme.
All the classes listed are suitable for everyone and are taught by qualified body work practitioners with experienced meditation teachers who are members of the Triratna Buddhist Order.

Thursday 10-12.15pm six week course starting Jan 10th
Through the practice of Yoga and meditation, alongside exploring some of the teachings of the Dharma in relation to the body, we will discover together why the Buddha emphasises the body as a way of deepening practice. In these sessions we will practice yoga which will flow into led meditation with some discussion of body related Dharma.
