For a description of this class please see the Generative Yoga blurb below. It costs $15 to attend.
Zoom Meditation – Monday at 7.30pm.
Meditation is a mode to integrate thoughts, feelings and sensations and to access the space and stillness within us. It enables us to see and live more clearly. It is difficult to put into words the importance of this practice. The deeper you move into your meditation practice the more you trust it and wish to return to it. This 45 minute session begins with a warm up/ground down sequence, followed by a guided and silent meditation, and concludes with a short sharing of experience. You can pay anything from $10 to $15, or employ a visit from your class pass to attend.
Please email me your bank transfer receipt (account details – NAME: Simone Schmidt BSB: 06 3105 ACCT: 1008 4658) or notify me that you are employing a visit from your class pass at least 3 hours before the session commences to book your place. After I receive your booking/payment I will send you an email with the zoom invite.
I approach yoga as a breath-movement-meditation. This class builds on the foundation of hatha (physical) yoga with creative, intuitive sequencing aligned to the natural fluidity and pulsation of the body. It can be adjusted to be more strong and dynamic, or more gentle and restorative, depending on how you are feeling and where you are in your practice. It is suitable for beginners to advanced students. At the end of the class there is at least 5 minutes seated meditation.
A common misconception is that in order to do yoga one needs to be ‘super flexible’. This is not the case. Be kind and gentle to your body and it will open in its own time and way. Yoga is designed to support, strengthen, soften and expand your body in the ways that it needs. So rather than trying to push your body to reach a ‘perfect’ form, yoga should be tailored to suit how you need to be at any moment in time. It is a journey of intimate, intuitive inquiry, rather than one of trying to reach a preconceived, ideal goal.
Yoga is a way of life, rather than a quick fix. Regular yoga practice (at least one studio visit per week combined with home practice) is recommended to receive the benefits of yoga to body and mind.
No bookings required, but if you are a new student please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to class so I can register your details. I supply mats, but feel free to bring your own.
