In this gentle, accessible Restorative Yoga class, we explore how the maintenance of inner focus (Bhavana) and sustained breath rhythm are affected (or unaffected) by changing environments. The body is the most immediate environment that holds the breath and the mind. Most of the time the environment – whether the body or the place in the world that we inhabit more generally – is always changing. This constant flux causes the breath and the mind to become destabilized. Through classes like this one, the practitioner learns how to acknowledge and then make subtle adjustments to the environment of the body so that the breath and the mind have a chance to become more placid. The subsequent result through practice of this is that it increases the dexterity of the mind and breath to accommodate the changing tides of life without causing deeper suffering.
