Theme of Summer YOGA Practices : Fire Element

Resonances of Fire reaches outwards - celebrating the fullness of expansion!

In this summer series of classes, we choose Fire poses that stimulate the fire energies such as extensions, inversions, heart openers & core work.  The Heart & Small Intestine meridians influences the choice of practices.  In addition, the digestive fire (Agni) is extremely important.   According to Ayurveda (Science of Life & sister science to Yoga), is the key to overall health when it is balanced and contained in the belly.  We also temper this with some cooling, calming Yin practices – especially if the heat is on!

 

Heart  - being the radiant organ and when healthy, all other organs do their jobs properly.

Small Intestine - whose primary task is to absorb nutrients from food and pass the waste on to the large intestine for elimination - it basically sorts out what is good for us and what is not

Heart Protector - which acts as a shock-absorber to defend the Heart from shocks, hursts and betrayals in life, and

Triple Heater - the 3 burning spaces of lower abdomen, upper abdomen and chest - which is responsible for the maintenance of harmony of the body mind and protects the heart.


As yoga is all about being in balance and harmony with oneself and nature, the practices can be specifically tailored to balance the energies of nature to enhance our own inner nature, our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health and wellbeing.

In the summer practices we move with ease, we breathe deeply, we open to a joyful & compassionate heart, we rest in spaciousness.

I hope you can join us for the expansive, loving, heart-oriented elements of fire.

Be Kind to Yourself

Happy Yoga

What my Students say.........

“I really enjoyed todays Restorative Yoga workshop.  Having 3 hours dedicated to this subject was deeply relaxing and such a treat.  I came away feeling totally refreshed - a new person and ready to face the world!”   

SP attended an afternoon workshop

"The 3 hour session goes surprisingly quickly,

giving time for a well rounded yoga practice, without any rush. I also like the seasonal themes these afternoons have, so today was just what I needed on a proper winters day" 

HS attending afternoon at Higham Hall

"I can tell that Linda has a wealth of yoga experience and knowledge.  She is not just going through the motions, she puts her heart into the teaching and I appreciate that, it makes a difference". 

LS regular attending weekly classes

“I have been coming to Linda's classes for years and think

she is a fantastic teacher, always something new to learn as she changes the practices every month, so there is a lot of variety.  I really get a lot out of it, that's why I come every week, I feel so much better for it"   

VP regular attendee of weekly classes
