Grounding and Centering Yoga Practice

Grounding and Centering Yoga Practice

Grounding and Centering Yoga Practice

A slow mindful flow and multi-layered yoga class that first asks you to become aware of the navel centre, and move from there. The class moves on to make you aware that the breath moves the rib cage, and then finally asks you to become aware of a point outside you looking back at yourself. Includes some Core work, Standing poses like Warrior II, Side Angle pose and Triangle pose, Hip openers and of course a Backbend. Enjoy coming back to your centre!

Earth flow

Groundedness, solidity, firmness and from there expansion and freedom... This flow will connect you to the earth to find the stability and freedom to balance in poses like Tree pose, Standing hand to big toe pose, Warrior III pose and more. 
When you experience a day when you don't feel grounded (like me when I taught this class), practicing these poses aren't easy. You will likely fall over, but remember it's about the journey towards balance and not about only being able to do these poses when your balance is already great. So if you too want to practice balancing whilst feeling off kilter, join me in this class and let's fall over together :-)

Balance flow

In this practice you move from Sun Salutations into balance postures. This can be challenging yet interesting. The practice of balance postures are important to align the body's center of gravity with the Earth's gravitational field. Finding the balance brings not only your body into balance but also the nerve impulses, the thoughts and emotions and brings equanimity. Despite the challenges you may experience through this practice it's well worth it as it's great for strengthening the muscles and building coordination and balance.

Increase your awareness of gravity

A general yoga class with our awareness on consciously releasing our body weight into the earth. This way we get to appreciate what awareness of gravity can do for us while practicing yoga. It is connected with feeling secure, safe enough to let go and be present. You can expect a gentle warm up, Sun Salutations A+B +variations, Standing poses and Balancing poses and some seated twists. Enjoy Ekhart yogis..

It's that time of the year again: we want to stay in bed, on the couch, we eat and drink and buy too much... This class is an antidote to all that: we generate a lot of heat and use our strength to burn away some laziness and move some energy. Warning: we may not look cool doing some of this, which is a great practice in itself ;-)

The drawstring and the zip-up

Learn the healthy actions of pretending you’re closing your trousers with a drawstring (narrowing the waist and firing up your corset muscles) and then pulling up an imaginary zip (firing up your other important abdominal muscle). The combination of these two actions in your yoga practice, together with releasing your psoas, develops true core strength.
