As your teacher, I blend more than just the poses on the mat because I believe we desperately need a diverse set of tools to cope with life’s challenges. High on my list would be resilience, boundaries, deep rest, as well as the other familiar benefits of yoga. I teach specific techniques of breathing whilst the moving and working of the body is organised around the breath. Practicing therapeutically means we inquire within through focussed movement, attentive breathing, structural integrity, emotional relief and stillness. With an inquiry led practice, it will feel more like your own and less like you’re being told what to do.
Being calm but measured enables us to practice from a more patient mode to touch base with our boundaries on any given day. Your central nervous system will be soothed leading the way for new health and happiness, whilst remaining present with the inner practice. When your body is comfortable enough to shift it’s attention from the physical, you can be at ease approaching the deeper layers if you wish. Recognising your whole experience on the mat gives potential to support broader inquiry off the mat, aiding authentic serenity for mind, body and mood.
