On 28th April Jacqueline Purnell hosted an In-service Training Day for British Wheel of Yoga led by Paul Harvey.  The day was titled Prana, Patanjali and Practice. Paul reminds us that Yoga is more than a physical practice. Beyond the body Yoga provides a deep spiritual and emotional healing. Tim Killick attended the day and has sent in this review for those of us who didn’t make it. Thanks Tim!

“The 1st day with Paul Harvey gave us a clear understanding of what Yoga should be, in contrast to what it has often become in yoga teaching. We are working in an exercise culture which influences the expectations of our students, who arrive at our classes for a whole host of reasons, most of them connected with health, fitness and body aesthetics. Paul demonstrated clearly that Yoga is more than this, and while we accept that the above are valid reasons for taking up yoga, we have a duty to convey its deeper significance to our students through a practice of Pranayama and meditation that acknowledges the challenges posed by the constant upwelling of our genetic and emotional past.

This refreshing rigour extended to an examination of the intermingling of Yoga and Vedanta. Paul was very clear that Yoga is not religious or even devotional, in a way that is promulgated by different schools of yoga, and some Yoga studios. He gave the example of ‘OM’, the most sacred Hindu symbol which has been incorporated into the yoga canon without fully explaining what it really is.

After lunch we examined different postures in relation to the upward and downward flow of Prana and apana, and the way in which the breath can ‘leak’ into the abdomen, reducing the power of the conscious breath.

Paul then rounded off the day with a quote that nicely summed up the embrace of Hatha and Raja yoga – ‘What good is the sword of wisdom to cut through the chains of illusion if the holder is too weak to wield it”
