Yoga practitioner John Stirk has been teaching Yoga and body-mind movement for over 40 years. His work aims to deepen, open and broaden the Yoga experience by inviting students to sink beneath existing knowledge and practical application and draw out for themselves their deeper practitioner.
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.
Participants are invited to open up ways of being that include clarity, relaxed sensitivity, and a deep, flowing awareness of how they are on all levels.
His work has been influenced by 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 the work of J. Krishnamurti.
He runs classes, workshops and residentials for yoga students and teachers throughout the UK and internationally.
