A Weekend of Workshops with Desiree Rumbaugh & Andrew Rivin – 15 to 17 May 2020

Venue: Combe Grove Manor, Bath
Cost: £385 per person if attending just the weekend OR £280 if adding it on to the 15-hr YTT.

It is well known that Yoga trains and supports both the mind and body simultaneously. Most students are probably aware of how this has been working so far in their own lives. This weekend workshop will give students and teachers of all levels a chance to slow down and focus on sharpening their skills of self-observation. Rather than noticing whether we can or cannot do a pose, we will be looking inside to see if we can discover what we are feeling in our body and how we are directing our mind to absorb the experience in the moment. The next step can then be the discovery of how we might cause even a slight shift that will open up a possibility to move forward into a new place. Let’s get together and let go of some self-limiting thoughts.

With over thirty years of experience as a yoga student and teacher, Desiree continues to grow even more curious about her work. Traveling the world continuously for the last twenty years and teaching thousands of students, Desiree has broadened her perspective and opened her mind to many different sources of wisdom. With previous certifications in Iyengar and Anusara yoga, she stays in shape with her own “pit crew” of physical therapists, weight trainers and spiritual teachers to keep her body healthy and her mind sharp. Desiree plans to continue traveling and teaching workshops for as long as she can walk her talk. Desiree’s husband Andrew Rivin is an executive leadership coach with the Asian Leadership Institute and works with individuals and groups worldwide at the corporate level. Also a longtime certified yoga instructor, he and Desiree weave their expertise in a heartwarming, mind opening way that will move you on multiple levels.
