Simon Low to give first Chelmsford workshop

Wednesday 7 March, 2007

Simon LowEssex in the UK is to score a first when acclaimed yoga teacher Simon Low visits Chelmsford's Yogaviva to lead a small workshop. The Yin/Yang day, covering slow "yin" postures as well as more dynamic "yang" moves, will take place on April 1.


Simon Low co-founded Triyoga in London's Primrsoe Hill and has been teaching internationally for the last 15 years.

His style is informed by the classical teachings of Sri Krishnamacharya and Okido Yoga, and also draws on The Alexander Technique, Pilates and Chi Kung.

Low is also known for his yin/yang style (characterised by long, passive meditative postures which work on the deep connective tissue) combined with a more vigorous vinyasa sequence.

Katherine Cullis, co-founder of Yogaviva, says: "Simon usually teaches large groups throughout the UK and abroad. It is a real privilege to have such a personal workshop with him in our studio, where numbers are limited.

"We are delighted to offer students the opportunity to deepen their practice with a world renowned teacher."

The workshop runs from 10am to 5pm and costs £55.
