What happens in my sessions?
This is an outline of a standard group class, 121 sessions are bespoke.
Each yoga session includes a warm up, usually to music - this shakes tension out of joints and muscles, frees the breathing, often includes a good laugh, and begins to get energy moving around the body.
Then there will usually be an energy block release. EBR's are graceful and powerful sequences of flowing movement designed specifically to free energy blockages on a physical, emotional and spiritual level.
There will also be postures and sequences - for instance the moon sequence (emotionally calming) or salutation to the earth (grounding and stabilising).
Breath awareness is a focus. Simple yogic breathing is sometimes included - particularly the Complete Breath or Deep Yogic Breath.
I always finish with guided deep relaxation (except in the outdoor riverside sessions), usually 30 mins, sometimes including visualisation.
Sometimes we end with a short period of sitting meditation.
Sometimes in the session we listen to the bell to bring us back to the present moment, ready to go back to the rest of our lives ... the bell comes fom my Zen practice.
I'm available on enquiry to teach yoga relaxation and/or mindfulness 121 to individuals and can create a programme around your specific needs. Sliding scale of charges according to your means.
