In the fourth and final class of this series you look at how to connect to the centre of your body.
A key aspect of a yoga practice is developing more awareness of your body. In this class we will begin to develop our awareness of the centre of your body. Consider the image of a starfish, with this 5 pointed structure. Using this image, you will be invited to explore how your 4 limbs and head thread toward the centre, how your movement in the outer parts of your body are supported by the centre of your body. In this class you will begin to deconstruct the more basic understandings of ‘core’ in the greater movement world (fitness classes etc) and find ways of creating a more holistic approach to this area of your body.
Possible props needed (but if you do not have them, do not worry, you can still practice):
- Yoga mat
- Two yoga bricks or books
