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 Grounding Into Prithvi, the Earth Element.
Prithvi is sanskit for the earth element in Ayurveda and Vedic science. It is our physical form and seat of stability. It seems appropriate to bring our awareness and focus to the earth element as we enter Taurus season and also celebrate Earth Day this week. In our embodied exploration of prithvi, we will play with sensations and energies of stability, support, calm, grounding, compassionate steady care, nourishment, and tending with patience and compassion.
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.
