Returning to the Source: The origins of Vinyasa Yoga
Here we will be encouraged to consciously wake up the pranic (life force) intelligence that already exists within all of us by exploring the relationship between opposites within our own bodies.
Connecting breath with movement (called vinyasa) we encourage the masculine principle to meet the feminine within all of us by inhaling from our heart centre after rooting ourselves down through the emptiness of our exhalation. And so the inhale meets the exhale, left meets right and our inner reality dances with the outer. Alignment in all our relationships begins here and now and can be practiced throughout our lives. By tapping into our life force and consciously connecting to our breath we bring about the possibility of Heaven meeting Earth within the framework of our bodies. Ones entire mind body experience is challenged, awakened and cleansed throughout this class, leaving one feeling relaxed yet peacefully energised as well.
