Refresh Your Intention
Sometimes we set an intention which needs to be re-energised. This practice serves to invigorate our intentions, be it new year resolutions, or re-invigorate our conscious minds, and ensure that each day we are on track with our intentions and our daily, conscious lives and choices.

Building Strength Softly
You don’t need to push harder to get stronger! Usually we associate strengthening with firming, but instead of firming, we can soften into our strength. When we are tense, adding pressure does not build strength, it creates more barriers. In this yoga and qi-gong fusion class, we discover ways to find strength and openness by softening away from pressure, tightness or tension. This accessible but strengthening class is great for anyone who feels they are a bit tight in their shoulders, hips or back. Whether a beginner or advanced, you will discover some new sensations in your yoga practice here. This is mainly a yoga class, with some qigong movements incorporated periodically. You’ll need two blocks, a strap and a bolster.

Devotion: Practising Hanumanasana
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.
