Exploring Balance with Elaine Fletcher

23rd November 2019
at The Costessey Centre

Exploring Balance with Elaine Fletcher

Tutor: Elaine Fletcher

Date: 23rd November 2019

Time: 10:00 - 16:00

Location: The Costessey Centre

Type of Event: Open Day

Places Available: 16

Elaine has practiced yoga since the early 1980's, teaching for more than twenty years. 

In 1994 Elaine qualified as a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga - the largest yoga organization in the U.K.   Her approach to asana has been influenced by working with well respected teachers , Peter Blackaby and John Stirk who draw on their knowledge from osteopathy, to encourage practice that focuses on the natural alignment of the body. Utilizing the role of the breath to create movement and release tension is also key in refining awareness and promoting a sense of well- being.

In this practical CDP workshop which is open to all, Elaine will be focusing on  exploring 'balance'.  

How we interpret  ‘sthira’,steadiness, support in asana   - which will include  finding  support through our feet, hands  and  the more subtle aspects of  support through  breath  and bandha  – balancing this with ‘sukha’,  ease, finding ‘the sweet spot ‘ in our practice. 

In the afternoon, we will explore the more subtle ways we may interpret balance, both in our yoga practice and also in our everyday life.

The afternoon will also include an opportunity to release hips in preparation for seated practices, pranayama, means of encouraging quietening of the  senses and  time  for  relaxation to absorb.
