Open Yoga 24.02.21 – Connecting to earth, the embodiment of nature series.


A new term, nearly a new season means a new series of Open Yoga classes.  For the next few weeks we will be bringing nature onto the mat by exploring elemental practices.  You know that feeling of walking outside, a breath of fresh air filling your lungs, sunshine meeting your skin, feet connecting to the ground below?  How might we embody these experiences on the mat?  In our practice?  What systems of our body or areas of our body feel the most grounded (connected to earth) or most fluid (connected to water) or most spacious (connected to air) . . . over the next few weeks we will be using our embodied senses to capture a bit of nature within!

This week’s class is all about meeting the ground, finding stability, space and mobility by anchoring to the earth below.

Suggested equipment:

  • Mat
  • Two yoga bricks
  • Blanket
  • Yoga strap or resistance band or scarf
