The speed of our everyday lives, both online and offline can leave us feeling frustrated and disconnected from our patience, stillness and compassion. It is not unusual to feel like our minds, bodies and emotions are endlessly spasming and it is no wonder we feel scattered and unsteady. When we come to our yoga practice we notice just how disconnected and scattered we actually feel. It takes an enormous amount of patience to meet ourselves with friendliness and let go again and again to the steadiness and calmness that is always waiting and available for us. In this hatha yoga class we will begin by resting into the earth underneath us and feeling the always present steadiness and calmness available to us. With this as our starting point for connectedness and peacefulness we can relax, sink into the moment and connect with what is present in our physical sensations, emotions, thoughts, energy and spirit.
This hatha yoga class begins with a guided relaxation to connect you with your physical sensations and the support of the earth underneath you. We will then release your hips and hamstrings with hand to big toe pose. Cat pose will release your spine. When we come to standing we will explore calm and steadiness in triangle pose. The class will finish with wide-legged seated forward fold and a mudra to explore calm.
