Yoga & Meditation – Spring term 2017

bow-pose

In our quest for BALANCE IN OUR LIVES, this term we’ll remind ourselves of the Niyamas (yogas rules for living) to see if there is anything that draws our attention or feels out of kilter at the moment. We’ll begin the class listening to a variety of chants of the Gayatri mantra -said to be the one of oldest mantras – and let the words and tunes flow over and around us to bring positivity and inspiration. You can listen and learn the meaning of the Gayatri in the video below…

 

Our posture work will be simple, gentle and deeply nourishing. We’ll allow our focus to rest on how the body enjoys opening and relaxing into stretches. Working with the Bow (Dhanurasana) posture and Head to Knee (Janu Sirsasana) besides some floor Vinyasa work and standing balances.

For our breathing practice (Pranayama), we will be working on the basics of alternate nostril breathing  (Nadi Shodana) with everyone finding their own rhythm and pace. Relaxations will be based upon passive relaxation techniques with some stories to complete each class. I am really looking forward to teaching this terms work:)
