The yogic tradition offers a refreshing alternative to the New Year’s resolution, a powerful and positive formula for realising your heartfelt desires, without asking you to change who you are. It’s the practice of sankalpa (resolve). A sankalpa can take 2 forms a heartfelt desire (a statement that reflects your true nature) or a specific intention.
“I have been a seeker and I still am, but I stopped asking the books and the stars. I started listening to the teaching of my soul.” ~ Rumi
In this Yin Zone we will explore and practice the art of making a sankalpa. As we move through our meditation and Yin poses we will progress through the steps of creating own heartfelt sankalpa and close by planting the seed of our sankalpa through the practice of Yoga Nidra (guided meditation).
Join Lou Rubie for this 2 hour Yin Zone session and set your positive intent for the year ahead.
This class is open to newbies to Ashtanga and long time veterans of the practice. Learn the correct sequence, breathing technique (pranayama), gaze (dristi) and lock (bandha). The Ashtanga system is dynamic, and synchronises the breath with movement to produce an internal heat, which is designed to purify your body, mind and spirit.
In the words of K. Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga’s founding father, “Practice and all is coming!”
In 2006, Phee completed her Bikram’s teacher training in Los Angeles and went on to teach at her home studio in Brookvale under the guidance of her beloved teacher and mentor Jodie Petersen. Phee has been teaching Bikram’s and Hatha Yoga for 11 years. Her teaching and personal practice centre on somatic observation in which focusing on the physical sensations of the body during asana creates states of deep meditation that transcend the limitations of everyday consciousness. Phee encourages students to surrender their minds to the observation and acceptance of the here and now without judgement or self-criticism; to focus and rejoice in the feelings of physical manifestation such as muscles stretching and contracting, the heart beating and the lungs filling and emptying. Phee is a two time Australian asana champion and has represented Australia three times in world asana championships. She has been teaching advanced asana postures for many years, has coached people for asana championships and has a strong technical understanding of asana techniques and alignment.
