More on Bhakti Yoga

Bhakti means love and selfless devotion.

We’re beginning with nose-to-knee challenge posture. Then we’ll continue with side-stretches and come to sitting through the boat. Checking that we’re up on the ‘sit-bones’, we’ll move into paschimottonasana, the east west stretch, followed by janu-sirsasana (all forms). Let’s do our purvottonasana back-stretch, before continuing with all the seated twists.

Butterfly knees next, with rocking buddha, merudandasana balance and the tortoise pose. Our last posture will be the cosmic egg – such a good balance, and it strengthens the abdominal muscles too!

During meditation, we’ll count mantra on our fingers. We’ll use the well-beloved mantra ‘OM MANI PADME HUM’.

Relaxation will be Anu Loma Viloma Kriya. This brings into balance the right and the left, the solar and the lunar.

Last class of this term next week, so that’s April 6th and 7th. We return on April 27th and 28th. This is for an 11 week summer term. The annual retreat this year is on July 28th/30th.

In true Bhakti Yoga spirit, I bid you farewell with love, light and blessings,

Carole xxx
