Cultivating Stillness and Resilience
Deeply relaxing and nurturing this class will also challenge you mentally and physically.
We often enjoy a mindful practice - but are we really training our mind to be present to enjoy the moment even when it's not totally comfortable for us?
The Dru style is often epitomised by graceful, flowing movements, sometimes energy focused, sometimes strong and dynamic. This means our mind can be beautifully absorbed in the movement, breath and energy awareness. In Dru, we usually also encourage a moment of silent reflection between poses as a way to connect and anchor ourselves.
But what if we could cultivate the presence of mind to be 100% present in every moment of the class, and even our lives?
In this class Aja, gently guides us to explore and expand our practice to find those moments of connection and depth within the poses. How? By introducing us to the concept of Yin Yoga. By holding standing and restorative yoga poses for longer than might initially be comfortable with (especially for our mind) we are gently pushing beyond our comfort zone. In this way, we not only stretch the body but also cultivate our willpower and inner resilience.
In this class you will:
- Learn the importance of stretching out the fascia
- Discover strength and willpower you never knew you had
- Confront your mind (which always wants to be anywhere but here)
- Deeply relax and trust your body
