Peter Thomson is conducting a series of intensives for experienced students at Oasis in 2013.
These intensives are aimed at the needs of experienced to advanced level students. They are not recommended for new or recent students to yoga or to the Iyengar method. Many of the students in the group are already teachers who have been studying with Peter for some years. All students are expected to be engaged in developing their own practice. As a guide for example all students should be accomplished in headstand and shoulderstand (sirsasana/ sarvangasana) and should be able to hold for 5 minutes or more.
Peter's particular approach is process or practice-based rather than prescriptive or conceptual and is built off the establishment of clear perceptual foundations that support our on-going yoga development. It demands therefore (and relies on) continuity of attendance and process. All participants in these intensives are expected to support this process through continuity in their attendance.

About Peter Thomson
Peter has been practicing yoga since 1979 and a student of the Iyengar family since 1981. He has traveled to Pune to study at the Iyengar Institute well over 20 times and has been a participant in most special intensives and courses at the Institute over the years, including notably the backbend intensive with Mr. Iyengar in 1991.
Peter is one of Australia's most senior and most experienced teachers and practitioners and has been heavily involved in the development of Iyengar yoga both in Australasian and more recently in South-East Asian region. This is so in terms of basic teaching but also in terms of teaching training and certification processes.
Peter’s particular interest in the practice and teaching of yoga is the depth of perception, inquiry and understanding that sustained practice can develop and in making that understanding directly accessible to students so they can claim it as their own in their practice and in their lives.
