Lucy welcomes all practitioners of Ashtanga Yoga to join her Assisted Mysore Morning Practice Sessions here at BaYoga 27th and 28th September 2014.
2 morning Practice sessions - 8am and 10.15am respectively Saturday and Sunday 27th and 28th September
1 afternoon class - Saturday and Sunday 1.30 - 3.30 pm
The afternoon session will be a medley of self discovery and practice. We will look at some foundation specifics and refer to 'things that have arisen' in the morning classes. We will take a look at some hip opening techniques on the Saturday afternoon and some shoulder, arm and wrist opening techniques on the Sunday afternoon, and then we will string these together into little mini sequences, with breath and bandha and fun.
Breathing deeply with bandha whilst seeking stillness in mind and asana - are the foundations of this unique and meditative practice.
The asana themselves strengthen and stretch and tone our bodies, whilst the breath feeds us, the looking place guides our minds to focus inwards as we move from shape to shape. We dance the dance, processing our lives, our thoughts, our emotions and our experiences. We come to see and know ourselves!
No one said Yoga was easy, but It rewards all who practice; with strength, with stamina and with grace - to greet our experiences and be present with ourselves, through all of our moments in life.
Lucy has a very practical and sensitive hands on approach to working with students. With the major focus on the physical and functional aspects of Yoga asana, Lucy continues to develop her own unique adjustments, based on her knowledge of anatomy in the sphere of yoga. Lucy has devised and developed many additional, supportive stretches relative and specific to each asana - which assist in the intelligent opening of the body.
Lucy's style of teaching and adjustment has been developed from her direct experience with Shri K Pattabhi Jois - during the Lakshmipuram days in Mysore,
(1993 onwards) and from working alongside and together with John Scott, for the past 20 years. Lucy has a background in aromatherapy, massage and bodywork, (including her study and practice of Chavutti Thirimal, (Indian foot pressure massage) and for the past 12 years as a Craniosacral Therapist.
Lucy teaches -The Yoga asana and adjustment, and Restorative Yoga components of the John Scott Yoga Teacher Training Programme, which she worked with John to develop over the past Years.
