Godfrey's contribution to the science and art of yoga is unique and ongoing, having given us the power and delights of ullola, xandranamaskar, the dynamics of integrity, the seven universal actions, sarvangabandha, suxmarexaka, suxmapuraka, rexakasvarupa, purakadirgha, the five realisations of relationship and much, much more to support your praxis and your life....
Godfri's pioneering journey into
the roots of human experience is grounded in a lifetime of yoga practice on mat and cushion that began when he was 16 years old.
Fertilised by professional training in Child Development and Education, Oriental Medicine, and
dedicated study with masters of Zen, Advaita and Tantra as well as Indian Yoga Gurus, Godfri's practice
has brought him to a deep, lucid intimacy with the subtleties of being human within which its apparent
paradoxes are all heart-warmingly resolved. His teaching will invite you to the same.
Unintimidated by the ideologies and hierarchies of tradition, Godfri has been able to cast clear light not only on the subtleties of yoga practice, but also on the nature of the body-mind 'relationship' and the significance of human consciousness. This has allowed him to firmly establish yoga practice and theory in the wisdom of life itself, while grounding its expression in the language of everyday life.
Godfri's teaching has a deep grounding in the Yogasutras of Patanjali and invites you to contextualise the sense of separateness within the deeper experiential perspectives of connectedness, interconnectedness, non-separateness and emptiness (or wholeness). This invitation is extended somatically on the basis of direct, immediate experience without any need for external authority or ideological dogma. In being accepted it allows you to feel a deep intimacy with and trust in life just as it is without needing to deny the presence or power of any element of your personal experience.
