I like to treat each 5 or 6-week yoga class block as a little course. Every yoga block is curated around a theme, be it a specific pose, an energetic exploration, or a dive into profound yogic philosophical concepts. Within these classes, ancient wisdom weaves its way, creating an experience that’s more than just physical – it’s a soulful connection. Whether it’s a slow burn kindling your inner fire or a gentle exploration guided by mindful breaths, expect to depart feeling renewed, empowered, and deeply connected to something within.
In our Nov/Dec series, we focussed on the hips, hamstrings, and shoulders, working towards our versions of Bird of Paradise pose. This journey mirrored the spirit of Tapas, inviting you to step into the unknown where transformation awaits.
And no need to be intimidated about some of the “big” postures. My classes aren’t about chasing an elusive perfection that doesn’t exist in yoga; rather, they’re about embracing the journey. Each session becomes a conduit for connection – with our bodies, minds, and inner wisdom.
By revisiting a similar foundational sequence each week of the block, your body learns where to go, developing strong foundations and often muscle memory, usually fostering progress in postures. I invite students to embrace the initial unfamiliarity – it’s your body whispering, “Hello, possibility!”
The final class of every block is a celebration of your unique journey. We collaboratively choose a pose, and your vote determines what we delve into.
So, take a deep breath, move with intention, and witness your brilliance unfold. Remember, the journey is uniquely yours, and the mat is always ready to support it.
