Time: 5:00 - 6:15 p.m.
5 - Day Spring Sadhana
Sadhana is our practice; it is the way we walk forward on the path of Yoga. This quick 5 day Sadhana, will be a guided practice gradually building from one day to the next to support the deepening of understanding and capacity in Asanas (postures) and Pranayama (breath work). This is a good opportunity to introduce yourself to the benefits of daily practice, or prepare for the longer Sadhana in June. Regular practice allows the body to sustain change, the mind to settle and the heart centre to open more expansively. Open to all who have completed Beginner session.

Contentment in Kurmasana
What is the magic of Yoga? Why do we feel better at the end of class? What is mind and how does it relate to consciousness? And what does getting our feet behind our head have to do with contentment in daily life? With so many things around us pulling at our mind, the practice of Yoga gives us an opportunity to reconnect to ourselves, to bring moments of quiet to the body, mind and breath. And from that quiet, contentment arises. In a world that tells we need to do more, do it faster, buy more and then buy some more, perhaps the challenging and rewarding act of cultivating contentment may be our best antidote.
