‘A Morning of Story and Yoga Asana’ workshop with Claire Murphy

‘A Morning of Story and Yoga Asana’ workshop with Claire Murphy

In July 2012 I attended a workshop of story and asana taught by Claire Murphy, hosted by Brigitte Rooney in Milton Keynes. Claire had structured the workshop around the story of Vyaghrapada (one having the feet like a tiger), one of the mythical rishis (sages) of ancient India. Vyaghrapada met with another seeker, Pantanjali, in the forest and these different and unlikely friends form a bond which celebrates both their similarities and their differences. Remembering the simple truths in this teaching, we begin to realize what unites us, and threaded through the narrative was a strong and detailed asana practice.
