Yoga & Natural Movement November 2021
Autumn is all around and I’m relishing this image of peace and stillness as westerly winds and rain blow in off the Atlantic. These westerly storms can be destructive and unsettling but sometimes a little shake up, messiness and change of perspective can set us on a different more authentically rewarding path. feedback There have been a few changes to my classes over the last year. Thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm and focus. As I work on shaping my yoga and movement offerings for 2022 I welcome on aspects of my classes and workshops that you are enjoying and similarly aspects that you are not so keen on, especially more recent inclusion of natural movement techniques in weekly classes. Thank you to those who have already emailed, I will be replying to your emails very soon!I will be refining the energy and focus of regular classes just slightly for Autumn/ Winter. Weekly yoga & natural movement classes will have more of a balance of sustainable yoga, breath and experiential anatomy this half term. We will still touch on natural movement in weekly sessions. However, after a fantastic Natural Movement & Breath workshop in Chapter Arts Centre last Sunday, I am hoping to facilitate more natural movement and breath workshops, dedicating more time and space to learning wonderfully functional and grounding biomechanically informed movements. I am hoping these sessions will continue into 2022, see below for November 2021.https://johannapaxton.com/cardiff-yoga-classes-timetableI continue my commitment to looking at cultural appropriation in relation to yoga, racism and social justice in general. This month I would like to highlight the work of Kallie Schut, http:// https://www.rebelyogatribe.co.uk and Sophia Ansari, http:// https://www.sofya.co.uk/ who I have both studied with personally and who both graciously hold space for vital, though often difficult, enquiry.
