Yoga for Meditators
Support and improve your sitting practice with yoga.
Bodily discomfort is one of the greatest impediments to a sitting practice. Traditionally in yoga, physical postures (asana) are used to prepare the body for meditation and can act as pointers to how we deal with attachment and aversion. When we learn how to be with unpleasant thoughts or sensations on the mat, we can cultivate skilfulness in dealing with difficult situations off the mat.
In this class Ellie will guide a gentle sequence of mindful movement and breathing techniques aimed at strengthening the mind and body. Learn how to use breathwork to quiet the mind and stretch, open and relieve your body of tension in order to find a comfortable seat in mindfulness meditation.
Suitable for beginner and intermediate yoga practitioners and meditators at any stage in their practice looking to unlock of the potential of the body to deepen meditative inquiry.
Please wear comfortable clothing suitable for moving freely and bring a mat and blocks/bolsters if you have them.
