Nyasa meditation 2

In this meditation we let our awareness flow over the ‘energetic’ spine, from the tailbone to the crown of the head. For a lot of us its difficult to ‘feel’ the spine, so sometimes we need to visualise it. We just take a look at the skeleton to see where the spine runs, how it […]

Meditation on Third Chakra

Manipura, the third chakra, is maybe the chakra that is most active collectively in our time and age. It relates to our tendency to worry and its opposite, our capacity to feel contentment; to our attachment to likes and dislikes and our discipline to overcome personal tendencies. This is not a long lecture on the […]

Morning Express: Front & Back

We start on the floor as (almost) always and build up to a gentle flow focusing on the front and the back of the body, with nourishment and structure. We finish with a meditation awakening sushumna, the energy channel that rises from the tail bone towards the top of the head.

Short Physical Prep for Meditation

This is not really a class, just a short sequence of movements I enjoy doing before I sit to meditate. It is meant to stimulate some chi flow through the body, which I find it helps me to sit longer. As I say in the introduction, everybody is different; you may find you don’t need […]

Second Chakra Flow

This class is a little bit different, as it uses body movements to awaken some energy around the lower belly, house of our second chakra. We move around quite a bit, activating muscles for sure, in the hope that when we sit for meditation later in class it will be easier to feel the area. […]

Chakras Express: Svadhisthana, second chakra

Continuing our light exploration of the chakras, we now concentrate on the second center, Svadhisthana. This chakra, localised between the lower belly and the sacrum, regulates many functions in the body, specifically related to our kidneys, urinary bladder and sexuality. This is a extremely powerful center; as with all the others, the power here can […]

Morning Express: Offer & Bow

This is one of my favourites, a complete body and intention practice, opening both the front and the back of the body, especially nice for days when you are short on time but need to open and energise everything. The most challenging part of the class is the coordination between front and back of mat, […]

Morning Express: A Friendly Start

This is my go-to practice for those days when I feel heavy and low, and start to make excuses not to practice. A super friendly, low resistance beginning that gently gets the body moving and the energy flowing, and a short, sweet meditation to wrap things up.

Wake it Up Before You Go-Go

We call this Morning Express: a full practice to mobilize and warm the whole body, and a meditation to set our intention and focus for the day. It’s better to do a shorter practice often than a long one once in a blue moon. This is gentle enough to start the day, while leaving you […]
