We will explore different ways of opening and softening the heart through yoga asana, breath, music and poetry. The Sufis say you are a real Sufi when your heart is as soft as wool. And many mystics, gurus and poets talk about the importance of the heart and how it is our gateway to freedom and love.
In the ancient texts of Kashmir Shaivism, there are many practices that connect us with our innate divinity. They describe how the physical body can be experienced as infinite space and how we have become really familiar with its materiality due to the stresses, traumas and attachments held within.
Through Yoga, we start to see more clearly all the different layers of who we are and how they operate. We investigate the transient nature of the mind, emotions and sensations and see how the boundaries of the physical body can dissolve if we let go of this idea that we are only a body mind entity. By opening to all that is arising and viewing it with fascination rather than resistance, we enter deep into the heart and discover our true nature is Love.
This is a soft and tender moving meditation. It doesn’t matter what shape or size you are or what level of flexibility you have. This class is open to all.
