Yoga For Happiness (2): Gratitude
Adopting an attitude of gratitude is a game-changer for journeying into joy. Gratitude for your breath and your body; gratitude for your relationships and experiences; gratitude for who you are and what you bring to the world; gratitude for the opportunity to see yourself clearly and non judgementally. This beautifully paced and sequenced vinyasa flow yoga class has shoulder and upper back opening focus, great to release tight shoulders and stiffness in the upper back and perfect to open the heart to gratitude. This class is about shifting from our habitual responses. You will need two bricks.
Forrest Yoga Neck & Jaw Release
This Forrest yoga class is just perfect if you've had a long day, if you're having a tough week, or are feeling a bit headachy. Any stresses or anxiety from the day or the week will unravel as you release aches in your neck, jaw and shoulders, which can suffer in stressful times. With hallmark strengthening and abs work, this class is perfect to keep you strong while you unwind. You will need a roll and a block.
Metta: Care for Ourselves and Care for Others
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
Move Into Calm
Free the Upper Body
A beautiful hatha yoga class to release the shoulder girdle, open up the connective tissues around the neck, arms, shoulders and jaws. An expansive class, suitable for all levels and featuring some wonderfully innovative stretches to help us to nurture the tissues around these areas. Highly recommended for all of us who spend a long time at computers, seated, after travel or after driving. You will need a yoga belt.
This nourishing yoga class is great for when our bodies are crying for extra nourishment and support. Perfect for the day after the night before, the day after a big athletic event, for that time of the month or for when you need to settle the nervous system. The perfect spa for body, mind and soul. Props: bolster or pillows.
