Introducing Bess Shipside to Thaxted Yoga!
A long time yoga practitioner, experienced teacher and artist, Bess believes that through embracing even a little yoga everyone can experience tangible life changing benefits!
This April, as we emerge into the new life energy of spring, you can join Bess to expand your awareness and appreciation of the life giving breath – the vital current that flows through us every day.
The breath is our biggest connector and most intimate partner- both astoundingly individual and completely universal – only you can experience what it feels like to be in each cycle of inhale and exhale, and yet the whole planet and every being breathes!
In this workshop we will explore foundational principles and techniques through movement, posture and specific breathing practices to build a supportive relationship with and understanding of your daily breath and the energising, animating force within- known in yoga as Prana, stemming from the tradition of hatha vinyasa yoga.
These breath expanding techniques-called pranayama, can create deeply supportive shifts within your physical yoga practice and provide a more connected sustainable experience.
The workshop will artfully weave together a flowing postural practice, yogic philosophy and space for practical guided inner explorations to attune us into the Body Of Breath
- Pancha Prana Vayus: 5 directions of life force energy that pervade body and space and support our movements
- Yogic Bandhas: energy locks that harness and direct the breath and support the body in postures)
- Pranayama: energising and calming breath work to balance the flow of energy through the body clearing the inner rivers
- A serene and blissful meditation
