The mind is listening to the body and the body is listening to the mind
Gentle yoga class last evening started with a guided meditation while in an asana, undoing the work of the day. The class proceeded at a mindful pace allowing the body to warm up, stretch, release stress and ended with an essential oil treatment. This class is a good option for stress relief and taking time to slow down your pace of life.
There are various reasons to attend a yoga class resulting in multiple benefits. If you wish to improve your strength, this occurs in both Hatha and Beginners yoga classes. Muscle strength is an indicator of joint integrity. At East Bank Yoga we will build strength
If you wish to improve your flexibility it takes 30 seconds of continuous stretching for your muscle spindle neuron to actually allow your muscle to habituate to a new, longer length. Take your time, and be gentle. When you feel tissue stretching along the bones as long as that stretch is not extreme it’s probably healthy. When you feel discomfort in a joint, stop doing what you’re doing.
Meditation Group meets monthly at 2:00 on a Saturday, see calendar for details. Meditation is a gift to your mind and body. Regular practice of meditation allows us to gain mastery over our minds so that we can still our thoughts to focus on the experience of being. If we mentally dwell on the past or the future, we may miss the experience of living in the present moment. Setting and visualizing goals is wonderful, however we can bring our thoughts into our current experience by taking steps to create them now.

I am looking forward to teaching yoga this evening via the Zoom platform that has been a safeguard platform since March. We meet with a good mind. Movement comes from spirit. As I feel this delightful enthusiasm to teach class I am reminded and share, with a regular energy or yoga practice you tap into the energy source within you. This evenings class will begin with a singing bowl meditation, tapping into harmony within. Followed with a let’s go, let go warm warmup, a few strength challenges, and then flowing into a Shakti sequence connecting with your divine light and energy. Registration required 24 hours prior to class at email@example.com Class price $12.00 or punch card purchase. See website for more information. Namaste, Jill Moncur
