‘You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state.’ Sharon Gannon
I am currently on Maternity leave and will return to teaching in either late 2017 or 2018 depending on the needs of our child.
90 Minutes of gentle, somatic yoga and a space to rest.
Stay tuned for classes in the Totnes area.
Somatic Yoga is focused towards exploring an intuitive knowing of the body, moment to moment, from the inside out. It integrates sound and intuitive, free form, movement with simple and gentle sequences that promote presence. The invitation is offered to fully inhabit the body and access its innate wisdom through your own unique experience. Somatic Yoga is less about physical achievement and more about developing a healthy relationship with yourself, your practice, others and Life. In this way, movement is used as a tool to inquire within, to develop open attentiveness and creativity as well as to aid relaxation and release. The environment is non-competitive and you are encouraged to listen to the needs of your own body without force. With the focus on mindfully staying with breath and physical sensations this practice can access the level of the nervous system as well as the emotional body. In this way it naturally supports integration and healing. It can also be very useful for pain management and relaxation.
Deep Rest is a guided practice that takes us to a state of deep, conscious rest. It is generally done from lying down and is completely guided. It offers deep rest and rejuvenation.
