"Be strong then

And enter into

your own body;

There you have a solid

place for your feet

Don't go off elsewhere

Throw away all thoughts

of imaginary things

And stand firm

in that which you are"


About Paul Wooden

Paul Wooden has been practicing and studying yoga and meditation for over 25 years and teaching for 20 years. He draws from his experience in many different styles and traditions and through a practical understanding of their underlying unifying principles, weaves together a cohesive and integrated approach to yoga.

Paul is a unique voice in the world of yoga and has a way of bringing the sometimes abstract teachings of yoga into ordinary language, making them accessible and workable in our lives.

A retreat with Paul is an invitation to the deeper dimensions of practice. His particular way of working opens us to the sensitivity and receptivity necessary for the subtler inner practices. He has been running retreats for many years and finds them fertile ground for real transformation.

He continues to study the wisdom traditions, non-duality, integral theory and is an ongoing student of the Diamond Approach.
