From November our focus in class will change from Earth to Water. We’ll string a few postures together to have more ‘flows’ throughout the class. The Water element relates to our whole body and being (as we are more than 60% water!), but in particular the pelvic area and elimination system. With this in mind we’ll work to strengthen and release the hips – some of the students working on the above sequence of poses. We’ll also be working with the Moon Sequence – one of my old favourites – great for the arms and the hips too.
Our breath work will continue with the 3-part-breath and move towards Ujjayi (often called the ocean breath). In the meditation and relaxation sections of the class we’ll be floating and drifting using imagery of calm lakes, rivers and moonlit seas.
