Yoga class III

This class has been especially devised to open the heart. Focus on surrender throughout, holding the mind in the moment, in stillness.

  1. Trikonasana: a lovely spring heart opener.
  2. Parsvakonasana: continuing the theme from Trikonasana.
  3. Prasarita Padottanasana: focus on calm and surrender through the breath.
  4. Adho Mukha Svanasana: use a yoga brick or block to support your head.
  5. Balasana: Quiet surrender.
  6. Purvottansana: Place your foot (balls only) on a wooden yoga brick, keeping the legs straight.
  7. Ustrasana: chest opening absorbed surrender (yogic concentration, holding the mind in the moment in other words in stillness).
  8. Sukhasana: Breathing.
  9. Savasana: surrender.

Quotes

On resistance in practice…
‘In asana practice we may find an obvious resistance such as a strong stretch in a muscle. We can choose to ignore the sensation, usually resulting in totally the opposite result and an almost compulsive fixation with the sensation. Or we can chose to move ourselves into the sensation and work with it which ironically allows us to release from the sensation and let it go.’
