Before the Winter break, I recorded a yoga practice to raise money for a charity to support teachers and supporting staff.
If you work in education this practice was offered as a gift – no donation necessary. Thirty people accessed the practice!
If you still want to make a donation: Link to Just Giving
If you still want to access the practice and this is your first yoga practice, be gentle with yourself. Many people find coordinating new movements with the breath is a bit of head game. The movements look simple but a focused, breath led approach can be challenging. If you feel light headed or dizzy, you may be over-breathing. If that’s the case, get to know the movements and allow yourself to work within a comfortable range of movement. Your breath may be longer or shorter than mine and that’s ok, do what your breath needs. Try to avoid twisting your head to watch the video and bring your focus to your breath and your own practice. Please use the suggested supports and variations where necessary. Let me know how it goes.
I have not brought the meditation to a close; this will allow you to sit for as long as you want. Here is the written practice sheet which can be downloaded if you find a written practice useful:
Please let me know if you have any issues accessing the practice or the Just Giving Page
