What To Expect From Your Yoga Class
Yoga Postures (Asanas) are a gentle way of stretching, strengthening and toning your muscles and work on reducing tension held within the body. The physical postures are practiced slowly and synchronised with the breath. They also gently massage the internal organs, stimulate the nervous system and improve the circulation. You can develop more body awareness while experiencing what is happening within.
Breathing Practices (Pranayama) - Breath is much broader than mere respiration. The breath and its movements are intimately linked to the manifestation of emotions, thought and stress. We know that the breath can control the mind and it is your consciousness that is in charge of the breath. So breathing practices assist in calming the mind and settling the body while balancing the emotions. Concentration becomes more focussed and this helps to prepare the mind for relaxation and meditation.
Relaxation – Deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra) allows the body to rest so that natural healing can take place. Disease and mental stress can be relieved through the development of the body’s healing powers. Yoga Nidra is a systematic method of relaxing the whole body and mind, it is rejuvenating and promotes a sense of wellbeing.
A typical class in the Satyananda style includes an introductory short relaxation, physical postures, breathing practices, meditation, yoga nidra and perhaps a little chanting.
