If every cloud has a silver lining, then for me the silver lining of the whole Covid era has been teaching Yoga online. Given that in March 2020 I had never been on a Zoom call, I can’t believe how much I’m enjoying my regular online classes – and the feedback I’ve been getting from the lovely people who attend has been wonderfully encouraging! I compiled some of the words and experiences that have come back to me from participants over the last year or so:
The emphasis on these classes is on being present to yourself just as you are in this moment – we are cultivating the capacity for ’embodied self awareness’ which is known to have profound benefits for physical, mental and emotional well being. We work gently with movement, breath and sound – finding ways to work with ease and pleasure rather than achieving any particular standard of ‘correctness’ in the yoga postures. Because this approach favours exploration and curiosity over performance we can welcome newcomers at any time. People who have been coming longer will notice ‘progress’ in their capacity to be present and aware of their experience moment to moment; and of-course because we are working mainly with movement they will notice improvements in mobility, strength and physical ease. But someone joining for the very first time is also likely to experience and enhanced sense of ease and well being.
I’d love to see you there! I’d love to hear from you if you have any questions at all either about the content of the classes or the technology involved. I’ll even do a Zoom rehearsal with you if you’re not sure how that works – I’m not exactly a tech wizard myself so I’m patient with learners!
