About The Event
Into the woods we go again for our final sadhana of 2022 in this most idyllic, heavenly ancient forest setting. You are warmly invited to come along and enjoy this 2 hour yoga practice. We will explore the rich, vibrant and illuminating expression captured in the mythical poetic allegory of the Hindu Pantheon, steeped in metaphor, imagery and symbolism expressed through the captivating stories of the ancient Gods and Goddesses.
For this final flourish, inspiration is taken from Garuda, Lord of the Birds, the giant part man part eagle deity whose sva-dharma (purpose, calling) is pre-informed by events that unfold before his birth and propel his fantastical journey.
As our vinyasa yoga sadhana journey unfolds we dive into the nourishing rivers of subtle energy through awareness of the breath and the currents that emerge in a continous stream as movement through intelligent sequencing rises and flows towards a peak pose. From stillness and interior awareness, through deep focussed breath work, into a series of creative kramic sequences you will discover for yourself the benefits that come to light from extending, strengthening and integratating body, mind and spirit - watch as they dance together, seamlessly entwined. Our story comes to a close with a guided meditation to implant us softly back into the physical body. As you rest, a greater awareness or perceptible inkling of your own divine nature may sprinkle itself like a gossamer layer of crystalline icing and perhaps you will awaken not just refreshed bt with a deeper sense of reflection and connection to your own story.
