Good alignment can transform your asanas from being strained and uncomfortable to being fluid and energising. This happens when we have an awareness of ourselves in relation to the support below and the space above.
The key to finding the right alignment for our own bodies is not to concern ourselves with the outside appearance of the pose, but to explore how a poses feels for us. You will feel encouraged to stop comparing your body and the way you move to others but to centre yourself in your own experience.
While a posture may look still and static captured by a camera, the nature of our bodies means that in asanas we must be organic and be able to move with the breath.
This workshop will give you time and space to explore your alignment, with the help of Naomi Keyte, as well as enjoying a balanced yoga practice including some pranayama, asana and a short meditation.
- Connecting with the Breath -
In yoga, breathing can transform a static or strained asana practice into a fluid and organic experience. The breath is an integral element and when we learn to listen to it, it can inform the way we move.
This 1.5 hour workshop will incorporate a warming vinyasa (flowing) sequence to build strength and flexibility, some nourishing restorative poses to calm the nervous system and end in a short meditation.
At Joyoga we welcome and encourage people of all abilities to participate.
What to bring: please wear comfortable active wear and bring some water. Mats and props will be provided but please feel free to bring your own.
