What on Earth is Meditation all About?
Most of us plunge into 'meditation' without even asking the fundamental questions; WHAT actually is it and WHY on earth might they want to do it. Others are scared of even trying because they don't understand WHAT or WHY and yet more give up too soon because they think that they are rubbish at it, probably through misunderstanding the 'WHAT'!! In this lighthearted chat, Dan asks the questions WHAT is meditation? WHY on earth would we want to spend time practising it? And if we decide that its for us then HOW might we go about starting.
Physical Aspects: Moving Mindfully To Explore Your Body
An exporation of your hands, wrists, shoulders, this flow is great for those of us who spend a lot of time at computers, have a strong asana practice or any other activity that builds repetitive strain. Working on all fours this flow moves on from the exploration of our bodies limits and begins to prepare the physical self for the demands of more challenging postures. Preparing the core and basic all round flexibility, this class works well as a stand alone sequence for the mornings or as a lovely warm up for stronger classes. Watch in combination with Dan's Discussion Of The Physical Aspects Of Yoga.
