After the success of the 2019 Immersion in Cornwall, Bridget and I have decided to run another one beginning November 2020. This is a fantastic opportunity for in-depth study with one of the worlds most sought after teachers.
Here’s what we got up to last year…
Anusara means “flowing with grace.” It is a hatha yoga system that combines precise biomechanical principles of alignment (called the universal principles of alignment) and a non-dual heart-orientated Tantric philosophy. Anusara philosophy begins with the recognition that one universal spirit pulsates as the essence of everything.
The 100hr immersion offers a chance to dive deeply into the essence of the Anusara teachings. You will learn the universal principles of alignment, explore the teachings of tantric philosophy and practice the subtle art of pranayama and meditation.
The Immersion is the first of a 2 stage process of becoming an Anusara elements and inspired teacher. It can also be taken as a stand-alone course for teachers of other styles wishing to learn more about the system and for students who wish to deepen their practice.
Note: The teacher training (the second of the 2 part process will be offered in Spring 2021 pending sufficient interest.)

Bridget will be assisted by Georgie Fearn. Georgie has been practising yoga for over 20 years and teaching for 16 years. She met Bridget in 2004 and began training towards becoming an Anusara teacher, becoming an Anusara Inspired teacher in 2012. She completed the 300hr advanced teacher training program under the guidance of Jayendra Hanly in 2018. Georgie has a deep passion for the philosophical teachings underpinning the practice and is proud to have studied with many teachers from within and outside the non-dual tantric system. Having walked the path of becoming an Anusara teacher, she will offer great insight and understanding to all students in this training.
This training will be taking place at Lime House Studio on the North Cornwall Coast.
Lime House is one of the most beautiful studios in the UK, newly built in 2020, set in the heart of the Cornish countryside with beautiful sea views. The studio is one of the largest in Cornwall so we can safely practice whilst remaining socially distanced. The studio also has the technology to live stream and we can bring you into the classroom via a wall-mounted screen should you be unable to join us for any part of the training.

Amended refund policy 08/09/20: With some of the lowest COVID 19 cases in all of the UK. despite tourism, I feel that it is extremely unlikely that Cornwall will become affected by government advice not to travel or meet to practice yoga. However, if we find ourselves under blanket restrictions (nationwide lock-down,) or a local restrictions to Cornwall, we will be happy to offer a refund. However, if the area in which you live has restrictions but Cornwall does not, we would not be able to offer a refund.
FULL PAYMENT DUE 1st SEPTEMBER 2020
