Finding Softness in Strength
In our generation it is no longer self evident that we listen to our body. In my yoga lessons the focus rests on nurturing the body – mind connection. Reconnecting our sensory experience with our thought perceptions. In yoga we watch wat happens.
I give deep respect to self-reflection and self-discovery, patience, discipline and finding a personal joy in the practice. Deepening awareness and thus become aware of our patterns; physical, mental and emotional. The physical practice supports a quietening of the mind. Conscious breathing building resilience and softness of the Mind. Asana practice is geared towards experience of the Spine and our central axis, is geared towards opening the Breath Body.
A modern day Hatha Yoga which invites more time in all asanas, especially asana to find lightness and subtle strength in the form. It is within accepted stillness can we touch the life force within the asana itself.
Work with breath and its power to transform are approached with the use of the imagination and the same approach as we go towards asana - to notice the holding patterns, the control and fears attached to our breath, and through awareness to open the breath possibilities and its flexible responsive action. Building a relationship with our breath.
Just as with another human being, just as with our Self, just as with anything that is most precious in life - take time, build relationship with Breath. Get to know, respect, trust Breath. Then learn to take some distance. Too much observation will lead to control - too little leads to disconnection. As with all things which matter, spend time, and find the balance.
