I teach an approach that is focused around the breath, we move within it’s capabilities because it will be the first to tell you if something is too much, or not enough.
This is how we begin to learn about ourselves; connecting through movement in postures that are carefully designed and adapted to move you towards something that is more subtle.
After each sequence or part of the practice I offer time for you to observe the shifts that have occurred. The breath allows us to observe our response.
Then we give ourselves time to really tune in and deepen our own self-awareness.
What do we feel in this precise moment? Finally we reflect. What do I need more of? What do I need less of? In order to move through life with ease.
