Open Yoga 18.01.22 – Slowing Down (part of the Building Resilience Series)


In this Open Yoga class we explore the somatic experiences of slowing down.  What arises in us when we are asked to stop, pause, move more slowly?  Is there resistance that comes forward?  Is there a desire for a different pace?  How to do we manage finding strength when there is more load over a longer time?  Can we be with our tendencies to either rush or stop entirely?  Which pace serves us best in our practice – in this moment . . . let’s find out!

What to expect: a hatha-inspired yoga session with mindful strength elements and somatic explorations.  Some optional flowing sequences are invited.

Suggested equipments:

  • Yoga mat
  • Blanket
  • Two yoga bricks (or hard copy books)
