ASANA LAB with Mayam Ovissi and Jafar Alexander
Maintain steadiness and ease - while keeping your balance! We are honoured to welcome Maryam and Jafar from the United States, for an afternoon of exploring five powerful asanas that both challenge and strengthen our focus and balance when faced with the fear of falling.
Type of Event
In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, which form the philosophical and ethical foundation for the yoga we practice today, this is expressed in the Sanskrit phrase ‘Sthira Sukha Asanam'; ‘may the seat embody steadiness and ease”. This session will explore a selection of standing and arm balances:
Parivritta Trikonasana: Revolved Triangle pose
Natarajasana: Lord of the Dance, or Cosmic Dancer
Eka Pada Koundinyasana: One Footed Sage
Eka Pada Rajakapotasana: One Footed Royal Pigeon
