Yoga of Stability

Philosophy in Action Series At BCY, Stokes Croft, With Laura Gilmore from 13 Oct

bristolcityyoga Hatha Yoga, Workshop

Taking inspiration from some of the founding texts of yoga and contemporary wisdom on Buddhism and mindfulness, these workshops will enliven your practice. Experience yoga in greater depth and richness, through the awareness and felt experience of what it is to be more whole, more yoga as well as to do the practices of yoga. Each workshop combines asana, pranayama and meditation in a philosophical framework. The workshops are suitable to all levels except complete beginners, with the asana work adapted to suit those present.

 

Stability of the breath, body and mind are integral to the practice of yoga. In this workshop we revisit the sutras and references to stabilising the mind.

Within our bodies we explore areas where we sometimes lack stability: foundation, core stability, gluteal stability (bum muscles) and playfully explore postures including standing poses, arm balances and backbends.

Pranayama and meditation practice bring the felt experience of the asana into the deeper dimensions of our being.

Focus of this workshop

Core stability, foundation, alignment, meditation, arm balances, hips, sama vritti & kappalabhati pranayama.
