Nadis

This term we’ll be looking at the nadis, the energy pathways. We’re beginning with a very gentle class. Let’s be aware, as we lie to relax, of the movement of air through the nostrils.
After our stretches, we’ll work with some gentle leg movements. Then on to the most gentle of twists. Now, let’s explore the bridge movement, combining it with the breath. Remain aware of the energy moving through the vital body.
Coming gently to standing, we’ll meet the integral yoga breathing exercises. The last one features a balance.
Still focusing on the energies, let’s try the swaying palm.
Then,like a rag-doll, we’ll hang from the waist. Always gentle, we’ll take ourselves through some forward bends and meet this term’s challenge pose. Then proceed into Salute to the Moon. This sequence is a wonderful study of the energy pathways.
Alternate nostril breathing will take us into meditation, and we’ll finish with a deep relaxation which concentrates on the breath.
OM Shanti Shanti Shanti
