Deepening Relationship With Your Yoga Practice
6 week course Tuesdays 16th Jan – 20th Feb 17.45-18.45 with Carly Mountain
Dance your way into 2018 with this new yoga course Deepening Your Relationship With Practice.
You may be relatively new to yoga and wish to invest more time and energy into it, or you may have practiced for years and feel that you have hit a wall that you cannot shift. Making a commitment to the same class for 6 weeks can really help to create a greater consistency and depth that will support your practice. The practice taught in this course is physical but is based in the yogic principles of connection and integration. If the arm moves why does it move, where does it move from and what else is affected? As we continue to awaken to the multiplicity of connections within our physical body, we can discover new possibilities that can be directly experienced not only through the physical but also in our mind, energy and emotions. During these 6 weeks we will play with;
– freeing the hips (as the seat of the spine and central gateway of the body) and spine (the central pillar of the temple of your body)
– the freedom to move and express our inner dance moment by moment
– we will learn a flowing vinyasa sequence centered around natarajasana (Lord of the Dance pose) that we will repeat and play with feeling how it resonates in us over time
This course requires a willingness to lean into the unknown, to balance and fall, play, dance and explore. Curiosity essential! Places limited early booking recommended £48 for 6 weeks
