Yoga: Dragonflies to Birds of Paradise – with Cordelia Rose
In this class we will practice asanas/poses of freedom and beauty which bring flexibility, strength and calm to each person according to their desire. Asanas are interspersed with rest so that our bodies can digest what has been asked of them and prepare for what comes next. Pranayama/breath extension is inherent in every movement and will also be practiced as preparation for Shavasana/relaxation. Class closes with a hasta mudra/meditative hand gesture, a chant and stillness.
