Yoga at Effra Space
11th October @ 7:15 pm - 8:25 pm BST
An event every week that begins at 7:15 pm on Wednesday, repeating until 29th November 2023
Yoga is a moving meditation practice that can bring mind, body and spirit into union. This class offers a complete practice in its own right, but is also a brilliant way to prepare for seated meditation or support the body alongside it.
We’ll explore a combination of hatha-inspired poses (asanas) with the breath, using the breath to settle the mind and bring awareness into the body. These slowly flowing poses will get energy moving and start releasing tension, leading into longer-held ‘yin’ stretches on the floor. ‘Yin’ gets into the nooks and crannies (and web of fascia) that dynamic yoga can’t always reach, helping you to let go of residual stress and sink into deep relaxation.
Each class is a chance to experience a shift in awareness from thinking into feeling, and explore a more spacious way of being. Absolutely no previous experience of yoga or meditation required, all bodies are welcome. Mats and props are provided.
About the course teachers:
Bex Arthur sees each class as a chance for transformation: a shift not only in the way we feel, but in the way we inhabit the world. With a twinkly enthusiasm, she brings in teachings from Jivamukti yoga, Yin, Nidra, Sound Healing and Buddhism to settle the mind and explore expanded states of awareness.
Lotte van Buuren has been teaching at Fierce Grace Hot Yoga and other studios for over six years. She started practicing yoga almost 10 years ago, as it helped to ease the anxiety and depression she was struggling with at the time. For Lotte, yoga means a calm mind, emotional resilience and a renewed sense of joy and purpose in life.
