The first in a series of seven classes exploring the kosha model – an ancient philosophical model of self.  We begin at the outmost layer of the model, the Annamaya kosha.  We will explore this outer layer somatically by coming into contact with the edges of ourself, skin, bones and the places where we can define our self from something else.  In this practice we also consider the edge of what we want/need. Suggested equipment:
  • Yoga mat
  • Stack of blankets
  • Yoga belt or a long scarf
  • Two yoga bricks (or hard copy books)
  • Yoga bolster (or firm sofa cushion)

Yoga Gently 22.10.21 – Pathways to Centre Series: connection to the psoas

This is the final class in our series on finding new pathways to our centre.  And it would be remiss of us not to explore a crucial ‘connecting’ muscle at our centre – the psoas muscles.  These two, deep and long muscles that connect our upper body to our lower body through centre work as both stabilising muscles and also form a pathway to our nervous systems.  When we breath – this muscle contracts. When we walk, these muscles at as a support system.  And when we release tension in these muscles that can signal our nervous system to dial things down.  We will finish this class with several psoas release postures, giving plenty of time for deep relaxation. What you will need:
  • a yoga mat
  • chair
  • stack of blankets
  • two yoga bricks (or a stack of hardcopy books)
  • a squidgy ball (a blanket will work here)

Yoga Gently 09.07.21 – Embodying the Easy-Breezy Feeling of Summertime

This class is wraps up the series on Embodying Summertime.  In this class we explore the possibility of embodying that lazy summertime feeling, the taking a pause out to relax in the sunshine and do nothing.  Though our bodies are always busy working for us, there are many aspects within us that are deeply settled.  What movements support you in connecting to the more settled aspects of yourself?  What postures feel the most restful?  What postures or movements create that subtle activity that brings you both aliveness and restfulness?  Enjoy the easy, breezy summer feeling within this practice.
