purna yoga, peeps

it’s finally happening, homies.

i am going to running yoga classes and they will be based around the key principles of purna yoga.

wtf is purna yoga i hear you say? well, let me explain in 140 characters or less… LOL, that was a joke but seriously, have a read.

purna in sanskrit means complete. and as such, involves not just asana (physical postures) but a wide variety of techniques to address physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.

for me, this is super important as wellness is about treating the whole person and purna yoga allows me to fulfill my dharma (life purpose).

so, what does this look like on the mat?

in my beginners or foundation class the asana will be based around level 1 poses with sustained holds and a flowing sun salutation sequence. hands on adjustments and a focus on alignment will enable students to develop strength, open energy channels and refine movements.

for the advanced class, the asana will be more dynamic with a strong flow maintained throughout the practice. with the addition of inversions and arm balances, this class will generate heat, flush toxins whilst developing strength and form.

in both classes, there will be pranayama practice (the use of the breath to connect the postures) and meditation to help control the mind and nervous system.

and why should i try it?

because i honestly believe that it will change your life for the better. calming the mind and soothing the body through movement and breath. i am here to help you any way i can. give me a call, send me a text, write on my wall, hail me down in the street, knock on my door? (maybe don’t do that, that’s a bit weird).
