  • Allen Ginsberg’s Howl

    On the evening of October 7th 1955, Gallery Six took place in a low-ceilinged former auto-body repair shop in San Francisco.  Gallery Six was an event where local artists within the bohemian community could meet and share their work. That evening, various poets including Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen and Michael McClure performed their work.  Also

  • What’s The Story?

    When I was a small boy my mother would read to me bedtime stories, which I used to look forward to with great delight. Two of my favorites were  AA Milne’s “Winnie-The Pooh” and “The Wind In The Willows” by Kenneth Grahame, in which the copy of the latter my mum read from were wonderfully

  • Put The Needle On The Record

    Several years ago I decided to purchase a record player. I had been considering this for some time and even though I had a hi-fi system that worked perfectly well, and I was able to play a large collection of my CDs, I felt something was missing. As a little boy growing up in the

  • Only connect

    I was once waiting for a bus as I travelled to teach a morning class. After a while of waiting for the bus to turn up and no sign of it appearing, a woman walked past and informed me, and the other people waiting, that the bus had been diverted as there had been a

  • Live In The Moment

    When the Stone Roses reformed and played a low-key warm-up show in Warrington Ian Brown spoke to members of the audience who were excited trying to film the gig on their phones. He is reported to have said: “If you put your cameras down you might be able to live in the moment. You have

A Place That’s Your Own

We all have to negotiate life’s challenges – personal relationships, work stresses, health issues, and the daily expectations of the world around us. Pressures build slowly, imperceptibly until, at last, we realise that the demands exceed our ability to cope. We can feel exhausted.

Time to Be

It’s no surprise that sometimes we need a breathing space. Time to pause, reflect and recalibrate. Time to ‘be’.

I wholeheartedly recommend Manjunaga’s sessions to anyone looking to de-stress and reconnect with themselves.

A Perfect Calm

For many people private yoga classes offer that calm, safe space.  A place to replenish physically, emotionally and spiritually.

In my early 60s I realised how much of my life I had lived in my head and how disconnected I was from my body. I sought a yoga teacher who would take an holistic approach – the integration of mind, body and spirit. Working with Manjunaga on a one-to-one basis has been a revelation.

And why not?

The benefits of yoga are many.  It offers and opportunity to find peace, clarity, an inner calm and confidence. It offers physical benefits too – strength, flexibility and poise.

These sessions have been absolutely invaluable. As an academic and someone who sits for most of the day, I can all too easily get lost in my head. An hour later and I leave Manjunaga’s feeling refreshed, ‘reset’, less anxious, and more connected with my body.

Going Deeper – a More Personal Connection

Some people want to go deeper than is possible in a group yoga class. They want a more relational experience where the teacher is available just for them. A focused private one-to-one experience where they receive the teacher’s undivided attention.

Manjunaga always starts each session by checking in with how I am and asks what I want so he can tailor the session to my needs. These sessions have been absolutely invaluable.

To Love and To Care?

A class tailored to meet your specific needs. A class designed to help increase your self-awareness so that you are better able to care for yourself. A class that will help you feel more alive, more human.

My flexibility and general fitness have greatly improved. However the most important development has been in my mental and emotional experience.

In Your Time… On Your Terms

Private one-to-one students often talk about new depths, new insights, about a valued, private, peaceful space – an oasis of calm and understanding.

Yoga has become an essential part of my daily life, supported by my always inspirational and enjoyable weekly one-to-one sessions with Manjunaga.

An Open Invitation

Some come once a week. Some monthly. Others when they can.

You can come when you want.

No pressure. No distractions.

The weekly sessions give me the ability to step out of daily life and bring a level of mindfulness that continues well beyond the lesson and into the week.
