This, Anahata, heart based practice is relaxing and restorative as we go through the pancha kosha (5 body) system from the physical aspects of chest opening, to energetic focus of bringing prana and focus to the heart, and onto building the emotional aspects of cultivating compassion, forgiveness, love and surrender, to finish on the mental aspects of the heart as we cultivate this as a state of mind.
This class we begin with manpura (navel) emphasis, stronger postures and sun salutations, then we move on to anahata (heart) on the mat with more introverted and heart centered postures and breath. This can be used in the transition time between Spring and Early Summer as we move from the rooting strong practice of Spring into the heart opening of Early Summer.
