Mindful Yoga for Tricky Times
This gently paced vinyasa yoga class is experimental and explorative, and focuses on balancing. Class starts with a walking meditation, focusing on the feet for us to really feel and listen to our body. Then moving mindfully through slow flow vinyasa with some elements of qigong, the class explores proprioception and how it feels to move through transitions in life. This is the ideal class for feeling into the present moment and can be a support for the tricker times in life. You will need a block and bolster/ pillow for rest at the end.
We Rise Meditation
A beautiful meditation class which includes mantra. This meditation is for when we need to connect back to ourselves in a busy and often overwhelming world. It is inspired by Maya Angelou’s poem ‘Still I Rise’ and is a reminder of what can arise within us for the good. Whenever you are feeling a sense of disconnect, when you feel frazzled and overwhelmed, we really recommend this meditation practice. We use the mantra ‘We Rise and I am connected’ and hand gestures to connect back to our bodies and ourselves.
