Yoga, Nature and the 5 elements
A mindful, restorative style yoga flow class, closely linking to the wisdom of Nature and the 5 elements of earth, fire, water, air and space. The practices will be creative, playful and healing, with an emphasis on improving prana flow, opening the nadis and balancing the 5 vayus, the internal wind energies, to help you return to your Svabhava, your own True Nature.
Yoga Nidra – creating space and light
This Yoga Nidra is used in yoga therapy when we are feeling overwhelmed, overstimulated, stressed or fatigued. It will guide you on a hatha yoga journey from outer to inner, surface to depth, solidity to fluidity, constraint to space, form to formless, and from darkness to light. Wherever we create space in the mind and body, there will always be more light. When the mind feels spacious and light, all sorts of possibilities and life potentials will open to us.
