The class begins with settling in, grounding, centering and connecting. We then engage in Pranayama practice. Prana means life force, ayama means to extend and harness life force energy. Through the practice of Pranayama we learn how to breathe deeply, turning the mind inwards to sharpen focus and concentration. This helps to relax the nervous system and calm the mind, which is a natural stepping stone towards the stillness of meditation practice.
There is some stretching and movement of the body to unwind tension and prepare for formal seated practice. The intention of these sessions is to harmonise our collective peaceful energies and dwell in stillness and peace. I hope these classes will encourage your own personal practice.
These classes welcome all practitioners and all levels of experience. For more information, please see the meditation page.
