Monthly Live Online Yoga Class for Subscribers + Bring a Friend
Sunday 30th April 2023 // 9.30-10.30 am (BST)
Part of being part of MFML is moving and breathing together. As well as having access to a library of 1,500+ ‘on demand’ classes, we’re so chuffed to offer our loyal Movers a regular live online community class. Although the class is free, if you wish to pay for ours and the teachers’ time, we would appreciate that, purely on a ‘Pay as you Feel’ basis.
Join Norman Blair for an easeful and gentle start to this Sunday morning!
This one-hour class will begin with some gentle body movements that are designed to be accessible and available for all participants.
This is about including ourselves as we actually are (rather than how we might want to be or how we have been in the past).
Then from this ground of accessibility and inclusivity, hopefully this practice will help us to become more connected to our bodies and more appreciative of our body experience.
The class will conclude with some Yin yoga poses.
This class will include:
- Gentle, accessible body movements
- Connection to our body
- Yin Yoga poses
This class will be suitable for all levels.
Norman has been practicing yoga since the early 1990s and started teaching in 2001. He has years of experience of teaching yin yoga in the UK and weaves this wonderful practice with his own background of ashtanga and meditation to be create a potent mix.

Why a community class?
It feels good to get together with others. Just look in any restaurant, or park on a sunny day and you will see the simple joy of people uniting and sharing time together. In many ways, in times gone by, we have taken for granted the importance of this in our personal lives; though for many, the strange COVID times and quarantines has been a stark reminder of the value and downright necessity, for our mental health and wellbeing, of simply being in the company of others.
But beyond this we often forget or perhaps never knew the value of community and getting together with others as part of or as support on our spiritual path: the path each of us are on of growing, evolving and maybe even one day awakening to the full potential of joy and bliss as our birthrights!
Regularly prioritizing getting together with like minded others can have a profound effect on our growth and evolution, not least when we are going through tough times and feel compelled to throw out all our healthy, life enhancing practices. It’s also a great way to stay motivated in our practice. It need not be anything wildly grand or planned out, simply carved out time where there is the chance for communion; for authentically sharing and feeling held in the energy of the collective.
In many ancient spiritual traditions the value of community was not only honoured, but often placed at the centre of the important elements to hold onto and sustain to allow for the most precipitous pathway to peace and awakening.
So let’s come together, with open hearts and curious minds, to share in each other’s wisdom, and in our shared humanity. We all know what it is like to yearn for love, acceptance and ultimately peace and simply carving out time to be in community can soothe deep parts of us that are calling out to be part of the collective. This can fill up even the deepest sense of being alone on the path or feeling a disconnection between your so-called mundane life and your path of evolution. Creating space in our lives to be in community truly can lift us up and allow us to feel held, supported and nourished.
