Yoga and Meditation Online
Pasadini’s (they/them) main focus in practice is working with shadow energies, and they encourage curiosity in meeting all that arises in experience through deeper connection with our heart and energetic being. They currently live in Glasgow, are a co-chair at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre, and studying to become a counsellor. They have been a student of Buddhist meditation since 2000 and lead retreats regularly at Dhanakosa.
Ginny started practicing yoga in 1995, teaching in 1999 and now offers a diverse range of classes mainly in London, encouraging students to develop their own personal practice.
Her focus is on body awareness through Indian yogic traditions of Asana, Pranayama and relaxation practices, integrating this with Chinese yogic traditions of Qi, meridians & there pertaining organs and the five elements.
She infuses all practices with fun, taking us into the unexplored field of body, mind & emotions, to evoke potential for personal growth & transformation of ourselves.

Open to all, these retreats are suitable for both beginners and those with more experience, but no previous experience is assumed. All these retreats include introductory meditation teaching and periods of silence.
This online version of our popular yoga and meditation retreat will combine introductory meditation teaching with yoga. We will cover an introduction to two traditional Buddhist meditations; the mindfulness of breathing and the development of loving kindness (Metta Bhavana) as well as a solid introduction to the principals of meditation. We will also be exploring some of the broader aspects of traditional Buddhism to get a flavour of how these might be relevant to our modern lives.
Both meditation and yoga teaching will be from first principles. The supportive atmosphere of the retreat allows us to develop and deepen both practices, and understand how the two augment each other.
