BUILD INNER STRENGTH AND FACE CHALLENGES WITH COURAGE
The word courage comes from the French word for heart and building courage is about developing our inner strength by changing our ‘heartset’. Our yoga practice can support us to develop physical, emotional, mental and spiritual courage. We need to draw on our strength and courage for all sorts of reasons: major changes in our lives; unexpected events that make us question our direction; illness amongst family and friends; and even the stresses and strains of daily living can test us.

Big & Fearless Heart
52:58 | Naomi Absalom
Most of us have experienced fear of some kind and know that when we're in it's grip the ripples permeate all areas of our lives. Allowing fear to continue to have power over us keeps us firmly locked in cycles of fear, anxiety, low self esteem and so on. A big part of beginning to break down some of these patterns is actually providing space and time to experience our own vulnerability - sitting with the feelings and sensations which arise when we do so. This is a beautifully deep and transformative flow and part of Naomi's personal home practice. Expect plenty of backbending and as usual a lot of breath! You will need 2 blocks.
