Yoga in Didsbury, Chorlton & Manchester
Challenging and engaging, stimulating yet relaxing, invigorating yet calming; I always leave Manjunaga’s classes feeling that I have experienced yoga on more than just a physical level.
Inner Peace – Outer Strength – Great Fun
Imagine a calmer life, less stressful. A balanced life, a life of clarity, self-acceptance and contentment. Imagine a more supple, stronger, flexible body – better health.
The benefits of yoga are many. A creative response to life’s challenges, a guide to meaningful understanding and positive engagement with yourself and the world around you.
It’s also great fun and a fantastic way to make new friends.
If you’ve already explored yoga then you’ll understand – the inner calm, the physical strength and enjoyment that it offers. You’ll also know how the style of instruction plays a defining role in helping you achieve those benefits. Choosing the right teacher really matters.
Thank you for your beautiful yoga this morning at Buddhafield. I had forgotten why I loved yoga so much, now I know again.
Yin & Yang Yoga – More Than Just a Yoga Class
My name is Manjunaga, (‘Manjunaga is a Buddhist name given to me, it means ‘kind ‘wisdom’). I teach Yin & Yang yoga.
I’ve studied yoga and Buddhist meditation for more than 20 years and was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2005. A fully accredited yoga teacher I’ve taught yoga in Manchester full time since completing my yoga training with Simon Low’s Yoga Academy in 2008.
I am a sixty year old rock climber and started attending yoga classes to gain more flexibility. Practising with Manjunaga has certainly improved my flexibility, however he has also shown me that there is more to yoga than that. His classes have helped me improve my physical and mental strength which I am successfully applying to rock climbing and everyday life.
Yin & Yang Yoga – A Unique, Balanced Approach to Yoga
Whilst other classes offer a more regimented style I choose to bring deeper, more subtle, personal qualities to my classes. working with the physical body, as well as the subtle energetic, mental, emotional aspects of our being. I engage with my students on a holistic, human level.
I encourage you to explore a deeper experience, a heightened awareness of what it is to be alive, to be human. It’s a rare approach, but a technique that my students clearly benefit from in many ways.
An Open Mind, an Open Heart and an Open Invitation
As kind and complimentary as student testimonials are, the only way to truly appreciate how yoga can improve your life is to experience it for yourself.
You’ve plenty of opportunity – I run classes and workshops in Didsbury, Chorlton and Manchester. I host yoga and meditation weekends in the Lake District and retreats in Scotland. I also offer private tuition.
Do please check the Classes page for times and locations or feel free to call me on 07914 304402 or contact me via the website. I’d be more than happy to explain the many ways that my yoga classes can give you a healthier, happier and more fulfilled life.
Yoga with Manjunaga is a kind and positive experience and amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, a joy to engage in.
