The following practices are in our schedule to offer time to ‘un-do’ to simply ‘be.’
An astanga practice is challenging and demanding and whilst the practice offers softness and ease alongside strength and stability it takes time to cultivate and we all need to rest and change our practice from time to time.
At The Yoga Hutch we offer regular Yin and Gong Baths. A yin practice offers a balance between a ‘yang’ active practice and a ‘yin’ softer practice to work deeply within the tissues of the body to improve mobility and create space. This is a constant exploration for us all as nothing is static as we move through our lives and the challenges it holds up to us. We quieten the mind and develop a self-reflective awareness.
Yin Yoga: (restorative)
Astanga (Mysore) studios traditionally close for a day of rest on the new and full moon. Instead of a this we offer alternative practices to balance our energy with a grounding ‘moon sequence’ of hip and heart openers. The practice supports your regular astanga or hatha practice with less dynamic intensity and less work through the upper body. while emphasising the hips, groin, lower spine and abdomen. It can also be practiced to support yourself through injury or as an alternative during the menstrual cycle. The practice can be adapted for everyone and is suitable for men and women.
The full moon practice diary can be seen on the moon days 2021 page.
