Your hard work is paying off yogis as more and more postures are within reach.
Physically this feels great as they manifest into your practice and mentally it gives you a feeling of personal achievement, nevertheless “yoga” can be achieved with the practice of fewer postures, pranayama, meditation and relaxation. Postures alone are not the only road to “ sat chit ananda ” (conscious blissful awareness) but they do make you live well in the present moment with vitality, health and well being. Namaste yogis namaste!
Vinyasa – to place in a special way.
Vinyasa flow – one movement one breath.
Vinyasa krama – building postures with integrity, finding a place to stay or a place to grow, reaching YOUR peak pose !!!
Core strength Vinyasa – “Surrendering, grounding into the earth, accessing the core of the body and waving through the spine to the unique expression of YOU !”’
In class an energy of oneness prevails producing great, great work!!! Don’t you just love Vinyasa, yogis???
On going journey with Mermaid work last night leading us into to our peak pose Ardha Chandra Chapasana. Sweet sweet “Sugarcane pose”
Our friend the wall supports , guides and gives us confidence never pushing or leaving us. Seeing the fruits of our work, building up with ease into sugarcane now makes Ardha Chandrasana (my favourite) feel like a pussycat!
The fullness of the moon last night dictated…… deep, slow work with moon sequence to nourish, cool and quieten us offering moments for reflection. OM…azing work again yogis!!!!
Lovely restorative work last night hope you all slept well!
See all who can next week for core strength vinyasa flow.
Nice work into the side body last night hope you have all grown an inch! Looking forward to practicing restorative with you all next week. Remember change of class time for that week only 6.30-8.30pm , dress warmly and bring your props!!! Aaaahhh!
Chakras at the forefront last night with appropriate asana, meditation and mantra to stimulate and clear out any of the ”stuff” which continually holds us back in having a fulfilling, loving and peaceful life.
Watch out this week for the ”stuff” which arises, sometimes your awareness is brought to newly acquired thoughts and emotions which you know deep within, you need to let go of. You might notice habitual patterns showing up over and over again until we choose to face them , deal with them, learn from them, let go of them and move on! Maybe something just plays out in front of you on the stage of life and strikes a chord or perhaps it appears in a dream. Be vigilant, your life dramas are meaningful teachers to you!
We can of course choose to simply enjoy the light energetic feeling a chakra balancing session gives us for a week or two, put the lid back on and jump right back on that wheel of life with all its familiar turmoil or we can do the work. It ‘s always “yogis” choice!
See all who can make it next week for a Core Strength Vinyasa Practice
Working consciously and deeply on the wave of the spine not only revives our spine and strengthens our upper body but gives us that wonderful experience of yoga. A demanding feat to slowly ripple the spine from tailbone to crown opening the heart on the way and then the return back dipping down with the head and rolling up through the shoulders then into the thoracic spine and back to lumber then tailbone. Each vertebrae requires your utmost attention to change a stiff flat back into a rippling alive and vibrant spine. While achieving this mind, body and breath are most definitely one!!! OMazing!!!
Physically opening the heart equates to more space in the chest allowing you to breathe better nourishing better the physical body , the mind and uplifting the spirit. Amazing work yogis hope you are all flying high today and always!
Ananda Tandava…….. Shiva’s blissful Dance. Throughout the cosmic rhythm of creation and destruction throughout the turmoil and chaos that can sometimes surround our lives, we can still find our centre rise above and blissfully dance through life!! Great practice and wonderful deep yogic sleep to finish helping us face our samskaras so that they may dissolve thus enhancing our blissful cosmic dance!!!
N.B.Yogis change of plan! I have set Restorative Yoga date for October 21st just after the October break.
Vasisthasana stars that you all are!! It was, I think, that leg lift in fallen triangle that gave you all the strength and confidence to become vasi stars… …good focus with internal connection to core moving from the inside out!
