Breaking the ‘perfect’ veil and yoga

I’ve just listened to Suzy Favor Hamilton on BBC’s World Service talking about her competitive/Olympic running life, her struggle with bipolar and how she believes a prescribed drug influenced her changed direction to becoming an escort, to finally finding her peace, which included practising Yoga.

I was moved by her honesty and eloquence of self-expression. See what you think

Latest Praxis Yoga Follow on Practice 3

Welcome to Praxis Yoga Follow On Class 3, working with the class theme:

“Working with a structured practice – offers access to a heightened state of awareness”

Have you ever had an ‘a-ha’ moment of realisation?

In Praxis terms, this is a connection to a heightened sense of awareness that enables you to tap into your innate intelligence, wisdom and creativity. Feeling safe within enables a deeper connection to a greater sense of self. Having a supportive structure can offer that sense of safety.

Today’s practice encourages you to work with this, using the timing of a count to 4 whilst exhaling, to begin that process of increasing your depth awareness and creating more ‘a-ha’ opportunities. Enjoy.
