Attuning to the Elements

Ground and centre your mind and body

On those days when there is so much going on and you are being stretched in all directions by many people, family, friends. When there is a crisis in the family or at work, this is the sequence to practice. It gives one of those Ahhh moments where something inside can let go and relax. Energy Block Release 3 is a very nurturing and nourishing sequence. The Earth Salutation is easy to do and grounding, centring. The Golden Eagle will charge you energy levels up and remind you that all is ok and that you have the ware-with-all to rise above life’s ever changing moments to see the best in it all!
 
Take a moment now and give yourself an opportunity to relax and re-charge effortlessly! Join Monica by this refreshing river. All the elements are here to balance every part of you. The powerful earth that she stands upon, the flowing river that is behind her, the light of sun and the freshness of the Welsh air that she breathes. They are all here for you too. As you begin to practice, the activation will release tension and tightness. The Sacro Lumber release will free the spine and ease any back pain. Energy Block Release 3 will open the lungs and your heart and will allow you to feel hope again, to breathe a sigh of relief that all is well. It is just one of those sequences!. The Earth Salutation (this is Monica’s favourite) will bring you back in touch with the best in you and will remind you that life is here to help not hinder. It will remind you that all that unfolds around us is to bring out the best in us. So be nourished by the elements and feel the nurture of the earth and allow yourself to let go and relax. To trust that all is well and as it should be.

A truly awesome session.I really felt the Earth Connection, becoming one with Mother Earth. Enjoyed the Golden Eagle Sequence in particular and will be sharing it with my yoga students in future classes. Thanks Monica.

This was lovely to experience. It makes a pleasant addition to the classes available. I could actually imagine myself in the forest and it also gave me some much-needed light! Thank you for the beautiful and skilful work of all who made this class. I was also amazed to cover 3 sequences in about 20 minutes, but it didn't feel at all rushed or superficial - great work!
