Dhyana Yoga – The Requisites of Meditation
In a series of practical and theoretical lessons, Stephen Brandon will guide us in an exploration of the how and why of meditation in the Yoga tradition. Following guidance offered by Yogacharya Sri T. Krishnamacharya and exploring the essence of the teaching on Dhyana in the Yoga Sutras, Upanishads and Bhagavad Gita we can learn the process and benefits of Dhyana Yoga.
Stephen Brandon has studied Yoga under some outstanding teachers from Sri T.Krishnamacharya’s lineage since 1999.
He studied for the Viniyoga Britain Diploma with Ranju Roy and Paul Harvey from 1999 – 2007. During this time he attended workshops & trainings with TKV Desikachar and A.G. and Indra Mohan. In 2007 Stephen met Srivatsa Ramaswami and since then has trained extensively in Vinyasa Krama Yoga and Yoga Philosophy with Ramaswami in India, the USA and the UK.
In 2015 Stephen met T.K. Sribhashyam (son of Krishnamacharya). He continued his contact & studies with Sribhashyam until he passed away in November 2017. Stephen continues to study with Srivatsa Ramaswami and Mrs Brigitte Khan, assistant teacher to T.K. Sribhashyam.
Stephen has recently been awarded a First Class Honours Grade in his Philosophy of Yoga & Hindu Studies from the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies at Oxford University. He is also author with Charles Cox of the VKY Practice Manual.
Stephen’s interest in Ayurveda was kindled during his study of Viniyoga and he has continued his studies since then, gaining diplomas from the American Institute of Vedic Studies and Ayurveda Pura London. He also attends annual Seminars with Dr Vasant Lad and is a member of the Ayurvedic Professionals Association and the Complementary Medical Association
In 2003 Stephen left his engineering job to become a full-time Yoga teacher. Since then he has taught 1:1 sessions, group classes, retreats and teacher training courses. He has taught in health clubs, schools, adult education centres and prisons as well as private classes. He teaches internationally at Yoga conferences and studios in the UK and Europe.
We hope you can join us for this program which promises to be a very informative & useful workshop, delivered by a teacher with vast knowledge & wisdom on the subject of Yoga.
