Field Yoga Workshops, Courses & Advanced Studies – 12 levels

Field Yoga is the full Yoga, Meditation and Advanced Study discipline offered by Malcolm at Melbourne Yoga and Meditation Centre.

It comes as modules in your choice of Workshops and longer Courses.

The disciplines are original, not fabricated for a modern trend.

The disciplines when applied correctly are transformative and accrue over time, that is, they get better as you practice longer.

The disciplines are not a trendy modern 'quick-fix', although they do introduce excellent results even over short periods of practice. Most of all they are 'sustained' in their effect. You feel better and better over time, and with correct application you will find your own deeper spiritual centre from which all true live and love arises.

Below are the 12 broad categories which contain the body of the detailed and applied teachings. You can start anywhere, although most people begin with Body Practicalities, and proceed from there. Today, many people struggle with their mind, and this is commonly called 'mental health issues'.
