A Space to Be, Separate Together Retreat, Yoga

Online – Sunday Night Flow and Restore – Yama

Sunday evening online classes continue throughout July on the theme of yama. We will explore the yama through accessible asana and restorative practice. If you have any specific concerns about your ability to participate please contact me before the class. Typically the class will include some movement from standing or seated, followed by supported postures, relaxation and a meditative practice.

Sitting Uncomfortably (tapas)

The third of the niyama is tapas. When translated from Sanskrit, tapas literally means ‘heat’. It is the heat that we create when we confront our habits, or the things we have become habituated to. It is often described as ‘discipline’ but I prefer to think of it as moving away from our comfort zone, or “sitting uncomfortably”.
