Anybody can breathe. Therefore anybody can practice yoga.
It’s been a busy time at the studio over the last six weeks or so, preparing to launch Cammeray Yoga as an initiative of The Yoga Institute. From changing over signs and creating the new website, to tweaking and refining the timetable, to photo shoots and picture wall planning…. It’s been a mammoth effort.
In the spin and swirl of all the excitement, it’s only human to forget the important things.
As Desikachar so succinctly points out, breathing is the cornerstone to living a life in yoga. A practice that comes off that 180 x 60cm textured grip, eco friendly mat, and into the actual world beyond the studio.
Breathing is the heart of yoga practice. Yes we love the asana and all the benefits this physical part of the practice can bring, but at the end of the day, I think it’s fair to say that that extra element people are often looking for when they slip their shoes off and roll out their mat, is a connection to something very still and centered. Breath has the capacity to steady and soothe, or to fortify and energize. Amazing stuff. And we make a focus on breath the epicentre of our teaching here.
We would love to share our breath-centered yoga classes with you. Come down and connect with Cammeray Yoga, your community studio and try one of our 20 themed classes, from Sunrise to Restorative, from Pregnancy to our very popular kids classes. There are just so many options.
And let us know if you would like to come along to the launch this Friday 11 March from 6pm. Phoebe is teaching a free class at 630pm and there’s a great gift bag for the first thirty people to rsvp. So be quick!
Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the exhale!
