We will practice some gentle moving exercises, breathing techniques and relaxation to promote balance and a sense of connection and calm. Movements are generally done slowly allowing us to feel directly and then relax into what we’re experiencing. The unique value of this way of working is not just bringing together the physical and psychological approaches to movement and wellbeing but, with practice, encouraging us to integrate body and mind in all our activities.
Classes meet online for six weeks. Each 45 minute session will generally include simple sitting movements and a practice standing up. Breathing practice and awareness of body sensation will both be included as a way to encourage relaxation.
Ideally have some room to move (rather than being ‘desk bound’) especially for the standing exercises. A chair can be used for sitting practices or, if comfortable for you, a meditation cushion on the floor.
