Shamanism, Total Freedom, Evolution and Ashtanga with Danny Paradise
daily 3-hour sessions, 3-6pm Yantra Hall.
"Yoga arose out of man's perception of nature and is a journey back to nature. As an ancient Shamanic practice, Yoga is about creating personal empowerment, personal authority and total freedom with an understanding that Nature is our Spiritual Teacher and Guide..."
The sessions are suitable for all ages and levels of experience from beginning students to advanced practitioners, teacher trainees and teachers of all forms of yoga. Danny shares the wisdom of ancient traditions in a contemporary, compassionate, non-dogmatic and humorous way. His purpose is to help people to develop a sacred, safe, healing, expanding and joyful personal practice.
