If you have a problem or request and let me know about it in good time before your next class, I shall do my best to include something that may be of help.
With love and delight
Thursday: The Power of Words
An exploration into how certain words may speak to your body better than a technical/anatomical instruction and can then help with issues we are confronted with in life.
Focus: Start with hips and shoulders and let’s see where it goes!
Physically and emotionally we may respond in a primal and more profound way through images than through the intellect. Our body memory wakes up and can use an IMAGE to re-find its natural healing process and release old trauma.
Focus: Mainly on the spine (includes the neck).
Thursday: Perineum and Pelvis
The body thrives on reconnecting with the Earth as our foundation and stability.
Our ‘Inner Earth’, the pelvic floor, offers us security to own … ‘’being who we are’’ … at any time and in changing situations.
Focus: Exploring the inner life and power of our pelvic ‘cave’ and how we can respond to life from the pelvis with its roots deep in the earth.
A joyful exploration from tail to nose and a maze of internal channels that allow both energy and the breath to dance creatively through and around us!
Focus: Awakening primal energy to connect body, mind, emotions and spirit through Breath in movement and meditation.
Thursday: Focus and Receiving
Understanding when and how we can balance these two aspects of our breath, action, and thought to find more peace and harmony in our practice and thus our whole life.
Focus: Breath, movement, asana observing the play of Focus and Receiving.
Meeting our right and left side. An exploration of our relationship with them and how they play out in our daily lives. Most of us favour one side, have been more injured on one side, think and see life more through one side. Like two friends they are and always will be different, but opening communication with and between them makes for a happier ‘inner family life’!
Focus: Listening to what they tell us and following that information into our practice.
Props: If possible have a ‘squidgy’ ball (7-9 inch inflatable ball like Edushape Sensory, Gertie, mini exercise; not fully inflated so that it is squishy/squidgy),two tennis balls tied tightly in a sock, blanket, bolster, yoga blocks, ordinary chair like for sitting at a table. Blankets or pillows can be substituted for the bolster and blocks.
