Coming Home to Ourselves Somatic Dance-Yoga Practice brings together movement as metaphor and the expanse of yoga with the intent to guide us to deeper embodiment beyond the mat. This practice is about befriending your body and reuniting with it as a sacred beloved and noticing how your mind and body work together to create harmony in your life.
The focus/theme of this class is Nurturing the Bridge Between the Head and the Heart.
The bridge between the head and the heart is the neck and throat. We can often hold tension and constriction, due to various acute or chronic stressors, in the neck and throat. There are practices that can soften and bring relaxation to this area so that there can be ease of communication between the mind and heart. We will nurture this bridge via somatic movement, mindfulness, sound (mantra and vocalization), pranayama (breath work), mudra and meditation.
This class includes simple yoga postures in dance form (alternating fluid movement and stillness), mindfulness prompts, various meditation practices, the application of mantra, mudras, and the weaving in of the rich and deep yoga philosophy that guides us into deeper levels of self-knowing and unity of mind and body.
Wear comfortable clothes to move in. Have a yoga mat and/or a blanket or pillow to sit on for the seated portion of class.
