19th March - Spring Shine
On the cusp of Spring Season's emergence - this theme woven through the class invites the body-mind from the cocoon of Winter season into an embodied lightness to the trillions of cells that make us up. Use this practice as a way to cultivate more light within - we certainly need this as individuals and our planet needs this from us.
21st May - Jala - Water Flow
Just after the fullest moon, we move into the water current to purify the senses and get our energy body moving. This delightfully playful class has many twists and turns to the usual way of moving in yoga, which will invite a completely fresh perspective to your practice and entire body, mind, centre!
25th June - Preciousness of Life
Using the invocational energy of the warrior Goddess's Kali & Durga to cultivate a massively potent contemplation of " In the face of our own mortality - what matters most!".
An essential reflection for life, which can reveal the energy and bhava (feeling state) that we we are willing to go through in order to transform. Taught with an abundance of mother energy and some sharp slaying swords to invite the cutting away of the dross in order to radiate in our inherent light! WHOOOSH!
17th September - Lakshmi - Invocations
The sweetest of themes to invoke the Goddess Lakshmi's key qualities to awaken more deeply within us. This goddess invokes luck and great health to flow abundantly, support in our worldly life and developing the qualities gratitude and generosity, inner radiance, happiness and love in general - who wouldn't want all of that!!! I will be using mantra and kirtan, as well as contemplation, flowing movements, meditation and a deep and blissful rest - Come play - I know you will go deep!
26th November - Immune Booster
As Winter is called in, we can embrace the change in nature, life, and the body through this theme. This is the time of the year when we can celebrate abundance and all the good things we have as well as the skill of letting go. We will look specifically at the autonomic nervous system and the vagus nerve to soothe and replete and the respiratory system and lungs, using this class as a sweet tonic when we are most in need of some immune support.
Through the physical asana we will take a ride through creative sequences sprinkled with twists like revolved half moon and revolved triangle, a camel inspired sequence will all build some heat and immunity. Moving sweetly into a seated lunar current where we can fall into the depth of opening through hip openers, forward bends and simple inversions. Earth this flow with a sweet blissful savasana.
