Mindful and mellow: relax and restore

You'll feel relaxed and restored after this lovely feel good class! We establish a breathing pattern that will help your nervous system settle down and to activate the rest and digest response of the body. First flow through some poses like cat cows and Sun Salutations with this particular breathing rhythme, then after that we hold poses like Uttanasana (standing forward bend), Adho mukha svanasana (donward facing dog pose), Malasana (squat pose), Sphynx pose and Paschimottanasana (seated forward bend) longer supporting ourselves to allow the mind and body to relax even deeper...

Lots of work on the upper body this time - shoulders, neck, arms, chest. You get to experience the benefits of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) combined with yoga. Enjoy the feeling of the body unwinding. Of course balanced with some lower body release.

Props needed: a belt or strap.

Meeting what is

By simply meeting your physical sensations and feelings as they are, you come to rest. No need to change your mood, or get rid of those tense shoulders…no need to get somewhere or fix something. Opening up to what is, imperfect as it may seem, is a wonderful way of grounding and centering yourself.

Movements to create a spacious body and mind

We start lying on the back, giving ourselves space to observe how we feel, what it is like to be us right now. On the back we warm up the spine, hips and legs and then we flow onto all fours and move, incorporating our core. From all fours we find our way to some lunges and standing postures and then down to the floor again for some seated hip openers and a Wheel pose. A bit of everything to give space, feel good and come back to ourselves.

Yoga + meditation: strength and vulnerability

A short body mind check in, followed up with a yoga sequence that works on improving an awareness of your core strength. With our awareness on strength we feel safe enough to sit quietly in meditation and open ourselves to all that lives in us. Feelings around difficult situations or just bliss. We breathe into it and give it space and time. Optional props: a meditation pillow and a block.

Deep release in body and mind

This yoga class works to improve the flexibility in the back, groin, hips, hamstrings and shoulders. We work with repetition, a great way to open muscles and fascia. We also introduce a technique called proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) to help create some resistance to the stretch so you can lengthen the muscles more when you let go. A calming, grounding class with some Twists, Forward bends and Hip openers. I hope you enjoy it.

This is a slow moving, mindful practice focusing on lengthening the muscles, and includes exercises to improve the circulation. Improved circulation means improved drainage in the lymphatic system. Positive affirmation and visualisation strengthens the auto-immune system, as does resting. Have a block to hand or a chair to rest your legs on.

Accept your tiredness and work with it
Practice honoring how you feel and take it from there. We start with a short meditation, then move on with some seated poses to ground and restore, and then we slowly shift towards some more movement—but we practice all the Yoga poses with great respect for how we feel. When we completely accept this moment as it is, our feeling state can shift and the energy system can restore itself.

Instead of fixing the issues we struggle with in life, we will try another approach by blessing what feels broken. This way we can open our hearts instead of fighting the problem, loving where we are, right in the middle of difficult emotions. A gentle guide into areas where we feel stuck and frustrated, letting life in.

Room for vulnerability

In our culture, much emphasis is placed on being successful, energetic and capable. In itself beautiful qualities that may bring us abundance and happiness. However, if not balanced equally with allowing ourselves to be vulnerable, indecisive or receptive, we wear ourselves out. Vulnerability, when met and embraced, is like rich, fertile ground, ready to receive the seeds that will bring new growth. So let's take the time to sit with our vulnerable, not-knowing self and instead of pushing it away, welcome it with open arms.

In this meditation we will have a closer look at what it is we are running from and open ourselves to new possibilities in embracing all aspects of life.
