Class Themes, Yoga Teacher

Class Theme: Nourish & Nurture

This is one of my all time favourite themes as those who take my classes often will know. Something we don’t get enough of – rest, recharge, rebuild. This practice centres around slowing down and truly listening to our bodies.

The following theme can be used either for your own personal practice, or for your group classes or one on ones that you are teaching. Everything below is just a guide based on my thoughts and experiences in the moment. Feel free to change anything to better suit your teaching/practice style or so that it feels more authentic to you and your own teaching voice. Namasté

Theme: Nourish & Nurture

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali 1:2 The restraint of the mental modifications is Yoga

Clearing our minds of clutter to focus on our mind/body connection. without words, just feeling. Checking in, adjusting as needed.  

Physical Focus: A slow flow practice ensuring our breath matches the movement. Lots of time between sequences to rest or flow. Long held stretches and inversions will also be welcomed.

Pranayama: 3-part breath

Yama/Niyama: Svadhyaya – self-study

Chakra: Root – Grounding

Mudra: Anjali mudra, palms together (mind/body connection)

Mantra: Wahe Guru

Gratitude for this journey from darkness to light
