    Effort Without Struggle

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    In doing yoga, we can learn from the Buddha’s wisdom of working with right effort. This practice will look at how we can move through a practice and learn to identify when we’re putting in healthy effort, or when our effort feels a bit more like a struggle! There will be some strong arm balances like one-legged crow (eka pada galavasana) where we can play our edge, but also moments of surrender. Hope you enjoy it.

  • Cultivating Our Inner Light42:26
    Cultivating Our Inner Light

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    A beautiful flow to open the heart, warm the back and still the mind. In the Yoga Sutra, the busy mind is described as quieting down through a number of ways: lengthening the breath, concentration on objects, or on experiences in deep sleep or dream states. It is also suggested that the mind can be quieted by concentration on the ever-present source of light that is believed to dwell inside the human heart. This light grows brighter when we do practices – like polishing a jewel that begins to shine and reflects the light all around it. We’ll look at ways to work with sunlight and moonlight in this fluid vinyasa-based sequence, and help awaken the source of light within each of us.

  • Metta: Care for Ourselves and Care for Others42:09
    Metta: Care for Ourselves and Care for Others

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    Featuring moon rather than sun salutes, this more nourishing practice is a beautifully nurturing slow flow and a nourishing sequence for the heart and soul. Great for when your body needs a little extra support, but you'd like to keep your movement practice. The human heart circulates the most oxygen rich supply of blood to itself first before it moves it out to the rest of the body. As humans we can also learn to care for our own bodies and experience, and use this care as a springboard to cultivate greater care for others and the world. “It is not arrogant or egotistical to feel good inside. You had nothing to do with it. It's simply the honest response to clearly perceived Reality.” – Erich Schiffmann

  • Devotion: Practising Hanumanasana01:05:52
    Devotion: Practising Hanumanasana

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    Hanumanasana is a challenging pose – it’s the “splits” – but named after the monkey king Hanuman, who in one giant leap stretched across the continent of India to help save his Lord Rama’s wife, Sita. His act is one of devotion. When we practice Hanumanasana, it can feel really challenging, but if we consider what makes us act in the service of our highest self, or our volition in life – like Hanuman’s devotion and love inspired him to take that immortalized leap – the pose can perhaps be understood in a new light. In this practice we’ll look at Hanumanasana and consider the ways in which can embrace its difficulty with skill and insight.

  • Qigong Meditations For Health & Vitality19:02
    Qigong Meditations For Health & Vitality

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    Mimi offers two qigong visualisation meditations in this practice. The first is called microcosmic orbit. Microcosmic orbit works with major channels of the body, the yin meridian (ren mai) and yang meridian (du mai) on the front and back channels of the body respectively. Known as the conception and governing channels. These meridians help regulate the flow of qi to the other 12 meridians and organs of the body. Circulating good flow of energy in the main rivers means tributaries can receive the flow more effortlessly. The second is called an organ-gemstone meditation. This meditation is one to do any time you feel like you are about to get sick; 90% of the time, it will prevent a cold or sore throat from coming on.

    Qigong Flow

    Mimi Kuo-Deemer

    This qigong flow practice starts with some warmups for the joints, cultivation of qi between the hands, and then moves into what we think of as “water salutations” – fluid movements that feel like the equivalent of yoga’s sun salutations. It’s a practice that warms the body, actively stimulates, guides and moves the qi, and helps to quiet the mind. Enjoy!
