Introducing, Gentle Yoga for Good Health & Calmness, formally Yoga for Cancer, different name, but still offering the same yoga. Now available to everybody within the community.
A breath-conscious class, intended to lessen pain, increase well-being and invoke a deep sense of calmness and tension release. Yoga practiced with a gentle and gradual rhythm, offering space for observation. The body postures and breath are respective, which allows for a progressive and balanced practice. In this way the class is available to anyone.
When yoga is accessed through developed breath awareness and observation, it becomes a tool to determine & increase the quality of our well-being. The breath & mind are intricately linked. When the breath is restricted or disturbed in some way this in turn influences all other physical, emotional & mental states. Our entire physiology depends upon the breath. As Paramahamsa Harihariananda says “NO BREATHE, NO LIFE”.
” The oscillation of the breathing is a perfect mirror of the fluctuations of life.” Donna Farhi
Yoga for good Health & calmness is practised in a way that serves to free the movement of the breath and tune in to obstacles that restrict it. The intention is to always practice in a way that is void of stress, discomfort and pain. The class begins with the same techniques to calm ourselves, the physical practice is often determined by environmental qualities, as we set the foundation to practice from a place of balance, calmness, mindfulness, and breathe consciousness.
If practising in a group is not comfortable, or you feel you would benefit from one on one teaching. I may be able to accommodate with private sessions in your own home. Please contact me and we can discuss in confidence, options according to your situation.
