GENTLE YOGA SESSION - ONLINE VIA ZOOM ON 29th NOVEMBER 2020
Session will be led by Monika Mathieu
After practising yoga for many years, having had several health issues, Monika was introduced to Howard Kent at the “Yoga for Health Foundation in Ickwell Bury". She studied there and completed her General and Remedial Teacher Training in 2003. These teachings changed her life, giving her a deeper understanding into yoga and health. She taught yoga in London and Hertfordshire, and from 2004 at the Patanjali Centre for Classical Yoga, a small Ashram based in Battle East Sussex, under the guidance of Swami Indranathji till his death in 2007. And since then is the main Yoga teacher at the Ashram.
She studied meditation and the Philosophy of the Bhagavad Gita and Philosophers of the World with the London School of Economic Science in London and Brighton. Monika had the privilege of practising Yoga with many great teachers to continually delve deeper into the science of Yoga. She completed her Post Graduate Teacher Training & Therapy Degree with the Devon School of Yoga in 2017 studying in particular the body-mind communication and their interdependency.
We invite you to join us online via Zoom for a gentle yoga session focusing on the breath from 10.30AM to 12.00PM. Practising improving the breath consciously, we improve our unconscious breathing, In these uncertain times we do and follow government guidelines to protect our self from COVID 19, germs, viruses, bacteria etc. and we have many medical aids to help the body and mind become or stay well.
In this session we will focus on how by paying just a little more attention to the breath we can increase not only the capacity but also the strength of our breathing capability. The Yoga postures and Mudras Monika has chosen for this session will all focus on establishing the basis from where the breath can be developed into a powerful breathing apparatus. (to be called upon at any time).
