You are a Flower Blooming in your own Garden: An Evening with Mark Whitwell
Thursday 12th December
6.00 - 9.00pm
Flow Studio, Hill Street
Join Mark Whitwell for this Sanga discussion and practice on his first ever visit to Northern Ireland.
Mark’s message is very clear: you are the power of the cosmos arising as pure intelligence. Your body is full of light. Your body is in perfect harmony with the cosmos. This is a fact. Not poetry. Not a spiritual statement. Everything of the natural world is unspeakable beauty. Your yoga is easy participation in this fact.
While you are not a flower, you are a human, the same life beauty, wonder, intelligence is blooming as you. Indeed there are subtle structures in your body like flowers. So you are a flower blooming in your own garden. Rest in that.
The Heart of Yoga with Mark Whitwell and Emma Warmington

Flow Studio, Hill Street
It has been a long time dream of Emma’s to bring her beloved teacher and friend, Mark Whitwell, to her homeland Northern Ireland, to share his loving wisdom. Join Mark and Emma in Flow Studio for a nourishing 3 day immersion that will leave you reverberating with joy throughout your daily life.
The ancient wisdom of yoga teaches that Life is already given to you, you are completely loved, you are here now. It teaches that we are not separate and cannot be separate from nature, which sustains us in a vast interdependence with everything. Yoga is not a linear process aimed toward a future goal. It is direct intimacy with life and it is available to everyone.
Mark and Emma offer the advanced practices of yoga in a way that you can integrate and make your own, whether you are just beginning to practice or have years of experience. This immersion involves an interwoven promise: you promise to practice yoga and in return you receive the promise of yoga’s gifts: health, intimacy, wellbeing and joy. In order to experience these benefits, your yoga practice must be adapted to you, not you to yoga.
With skillful and heartfelt guidance, Mark teaches principles of a personal home yoga practice in simple and easy-to-digest sessions. In this immersion, you will:
Explore the five principles of advanced personal practice
Dive into asana, pranayama, and meditation as a seamless process
Discover how yoga transforms life into an intimate celebration with everything
Experience the nurturing principle as a constant in your life from now on.
‘You are the power of this cosmos arising as pure intelligence and utter beauty, in perfect intrinsic harmony with the entire cosmos. This is simply a fact. Yoga is your embrace of this fact.’
