Sivananda Yoga Masterclass
Next date TBC, Saturday, 10am-12noon, £15, online via Zoom.
The Sivananda practice is a set sequence of hatha yoga (meaning we practice the same poses in the same order each time). We start in savasana, then practice two breathing exercises, sun salutations, and 12 different asanas followed by a long guided relaxation. The focus is on moving with awareness and breathing deeply. This practice aims to stretch and strengthen, moving the spine in all directions as well as moving the different energies in the body so that you feel balanced by the end – both energised and calm.
Practicing a set sequence can be really rewarding as it helps you see changes in your body and practice since you last did the sequence and practiced particular poses.
Below is a speeded up video of the whole sequence so that you can see what it involves. And here’s a blog I wrote for Santosa on the Sivananda practice here.
