Clive Fogelman's Yoga Classes
Hatha Yoga To Feel Openness
A sense of open body and mind is essential to get the most out of life. Being open to all that life throws at us, as well as being physically open, flexible and strong helps us to feel like we can take on all of life's challenges. This hatha yoga class is designed to create openness and spacious in the body and mind. Starting with a bridge pose sequence for a feeling of openness in the chest and heart, moving to supine twists and gate pose to open up the side body. Then a beautiful sequence of gently paced standing poses, giving plenty of time for long breaths in all yoga poses, to connect with the spaciousness in the body. The class explores both openness within the body and that can support an openness to our mind and how we move forward from our practise into the rest of the day.
Hatha Yoga To Feel Stillness
Dropping into stillness at the start of the day can be a wonderful way to start the day, especially if we haven't had such a restful night's sleep, and we're wondering how we'll get through the day. If we look to start the day when we're tired with an energising class, this can easily deplete us. This very gentle hatha yoga class is, however, designed to cultivate a sense of relaxed stillness and steadiness. The class teaches us how to conserve and hold our mental, as well as our physical energy. There is the invitation to focus on the breath and hold poses, focusing on the breath. Holding poses, focusing on gaze in some poses to find stillness in body and closing eyes in others to find stillness within. This class will start and end with a period of quietness and stillness, exploring how much value that can bring into our practise and how we feel for the rest of the day.
Hatha Yoga To Feel Gratitude
