Mantras Course

There are two workshops to the course, each over a period of three days.

  • Each workshop will consist of lectures with Gitte Bechsgaard together with asana and pranayama practice with Sheila Haswell
  • The fee is £220 for each workshop (or £400 for both if paid before end January 2018)
  • To secure a place make a payment of £50 as a deposit and e-mail the details to Sheila. The balance of £170 is due four weeks before the start of the workshop
  • To accommodate everyone, we may need to operate with two groups (in a similar way to the recent Cakras courses). Therefore the timetable for each workshop will be communicated as soon as the likely number of attendees is known.

Workshop Two
