Wishing you all light, love and blessings on Diwali.
Our theme of this half-term has been Ahimsa, non-violence. How the world craves this abstinence. We’re going to begin our practice with some standing breathing exercises. Let’s open the chest and draw in the good prana! We’ll then progress to all forms of forward bend, followed by all forms of backward bend. On to the twist to increase the suppleness off the spine and to massage the digestive system.
It will be good to meet Mountain sequence here. Such a good way to tone the trunk and strengthen the arms. Have we gained stability balance from the mountain? Let’s see as we go into two balance poses, the tree and the dancer.
Now we’ll experience moving meditation in the Salute to the Moon – Chandra Namaskar. Lovely…
Back to the mat through the squat and here we prepare for cow-face pose. Last time as our challenge, Yogis!
Meditation, after the cool-downs, is the square breath, Sama Vritti Pranayama. Relaxation will be all about the breath. Breathe in golden yellow – breathe out sky blue.
Half-term next week.
OM Shanti Shanti Shanti
