Foundation Training and Breath Work Course
With Brian Hickey
Friday mornings, starting 24 April. 9.30 - 10.45am
This course is initially a repeat of the 3 week intro course Brian did on Monday evenings. After this he will delve deeper into the work but you must have done the 3 introduction weeks for that.
Foundation Training is a series of body weight exercises that reverse the effects of modern life by re-balancing the muscular system and taking the load away from the joints. We will go over the main principles of FT and learn decompression breathing. In these new times and being house bound it's very important to keep our physical health up.
We will have a 30min meditation before each class as we want to develop all our practises.
If you have any medical issues or back or spinal issues and have a concern about doing body weight exercise please get in touch beforehand.

Brian is a physical therapist and Foundation Training instructor who has a love of the human body. He has been practicing meditation for over 15 years, attended numerous retreats and stayed in Chithurst Buddhist Monastery for the three month winter retreat. He is teaching introduction to Buddhist meditation for us and the use of breath work and foundation training to improve posture. He took this up to cure his own bad back and poor posture.
We are encouraging people to make donations to teachers who are providing something, other than meditation, such as yoga or FT, for which they have had to pay to be trained. All of them are providing their classes on this platform to support people practicing Buddhist insight meditation, which has benefited them, but all of them are poor and could do with the money. They would only like people to give what they can afford and only after the class has helped them.
