Every week there is a specific schedule of pranayama and meditation home practice to do and a sequential guide to instruction for each practice. There will also be some set readings on the underpinning theory.
Estimated time required: 30 mins a day of practice for 4 days a week (minimum) and no more than 2 hours of reading and writing each week.
Successful completion for the initial module is a pre-requisite for enrolment in the following module. You will be given reading relevant to that week’s practices and more often than not, a short online quiz, while not compulsory it is available for you there to complete. This will enable you to confirm your understanding of the purpose and technique of the designated practices.
To successfully complete each module, you will need to keep a practice journal showing evidence of your regular practice of the prescribed techniques for each week. This requires you to practice the designated practices for that particular week, a minimum of 4 times per week. Your journal will need to be submitted twice for the first module, and just once each for the subsequent modules.. This is so that you can receive detailed feedback from David.
Each module of this course takes 3 months to complete if you work through it on a weekly basis. As we understand that life issues can come up and disrupt your practice, or you may just need a break, you have 6 months in which to work through each module. After 6 months your access to Moodle will be suspended unless you have contacted David or the Course Manager to request an extension. We are here to help you work through the course and for it to be a positive addition to your life, we will endeavour to assist you in any way we can for the duration of your time on the course and are readily available to discuss any questions you have about your practice or the course.
