A more relaxed and calmer month with classes beginning to settle into cosy, winter numbers. Attendance is regular with committed morning practitioners and a few new faces both morning and evening.
The new Counted Primary Ashtanga class begins this Tuesday. The tradition of the counted class is well established and I am looking forward to offering it within the programme. It is suitable for all levels except complete beginners.
It addresses the sequencing of the asanas and deepens the understanding of the breath count for each posture. Counted class is a valuable tool in developing clarity and provides a bridge from the teacher led practice to the freedom to go at your own pace of that is the focus of self practice.
The Ashtanga Yoga and Pranayama Intensive with Kia Naddermier is fully booked. Hannah Paton is the chef for the course and is providing 2 fabulous lunches during the weekend.
A head’s up for the last Sunday workshop of 2016:
Thought of the month:
On this path effort never goes to waste,
And there is no failure.
