Asana & Pranayama
Asana & Pranayama
Delve into the delight of restorative poses & healing breath work. A layered sequence of supported openings for rich pranayamic immersion. Healing & freeing.
This class is both gentle and strong, has deep sequencing integrity, wonderful alignments and will guide your practice into new dimensions. It starts with a seated meditation, some light body openings and then moves straight into standing poses, with extra attention given to techniques that ensure postural integrity of the torso no matter what our legs are doing! Once the body is feeling itself and the mind has been focused we move into downward dogs, upward dogs, more standing poses and then a light but essential Sirsasana. This is followed by hip openers, shoulder openers, forward bends and culminates in a small but soothing shoulder stand, some supine releasers and of course a guided Savasana. You can be sure that every part of your body will feel good and your mind will feel clear and calm. Made with love.
Note: I’ve purposefully kept the inversion times very light as I wanted this class to be accessible to Level 2 practitioners. I hope that knowing that they won’t last too long will help you stay motivated to do them!
