Each week, Laura will start the session with an Embodied Flow principle, then talk further about the fundamental yoga guidelines, being the 'Yamas', whilst moving through a gentle flow.
Week 1 - Root to Rise - Yama: Ahimsa/Nonviolence
We'll start to build our connection to the breath, and learn to find stability and balance through a grounding flow.
Week 2 - Strong & Stable - Yama: Satya/Truthfulness
By bringing awareness to the spine and the central channel of the body, we'll start to build strength and ease in our movements.
Week 3 - Energy Flow - Yama: Asteya/Non-Stealing
It's not about what it looks like, but what it feels like. Learn how to pair bandhas, or body locks, with flowing breath for energy and engagement in your practice.
Week 4 - Subtle Body - Yama: Brahmacharya/Non-Excess
We'll start to slow down our movements, finding a greater sense of internal awareness to bring more mindfulness to the practice.
Week 5 - Integration - Yama: Aparigraha/Non-Possessiveness
Bringing it all together, we'll flow and find intention for our practice that we can use on and off the mat.
