About the event
Join me for an hour of blissfull yoga practice. Flow & Float is not your usual yoga class.
It is based on the principles of Nada Yoga, also known as the Yoga of Sound.
Nada means Sound in sanskrit. it refers to the primordial sound of Om, which is at the origin of all creation in Vedic philosophy. To know more about the philosophy being the Yoga of Sound, visit the Nada Yoga page
The class is 1 hour and 15 minutes. We start with some musical warm up, practice a reformative gentle yoga often supported by the use of mantras. The physical practice is followed by a mantra meditation and ends on a blissful Sound Bath savasana.
What to Expect
Do not expect to exert yourself. The physical practivce is adapted to the end of the day, therefore charged by gentle and soothing moon energy (stretches, hip openers, heart opening and the likes). It is meant to be a conscious practice of being in and with the body for you to really feel yourself and where you are at, right now.
Sometimes I include mantras while doing breathwork: you'll see how pranayama which often feel like a repetitive exercise suddenly becomes alive. It is true during meditation too: including mantras to your meditation practice suddenly makes it effortless. Finally, we end on a short Sound Bath so that you start your week fully rested, fully conscious and ready to face the world with a focused, gentle and firm energy... and a healthy body.
If you know yoga asanas and sound healing, imagine putting the two together now? Expect an immense sense of peace in the body and the mind.
A Note on Nada Yoga
Nada Yoga isn't well known, yet it is the most ancient practice of yoga, well before its physical incarnation (asanas) was invented. We use sound in its musical form but also as mantras (mantras to have to be sung, often we just repeat them in our mind, so do not worry about having to sing :).
Through the power of mantras, "We enter the realm of "She who sets free", the mind unravelling before our eyes, we connect to the Universal vibration, which is the basis of the yogic pursuit of mantras".
In his "Chakra Kala Sutra", the Dalai Lama says of Nada: "Without depending on mantras, Bhuddahood cannot be attained".
I hope to see you soon, on the mat, at Millers way Project :)
