The breath lies at the centre of the yoga practice. For me, the awareness of the breath is what makes my practice. If it's not there I'm just doing a physical exercise. I will go as far as saying the awareness of the breath and linking it with movement and asanas is what makes yoga, yoga. In class I will explain why it makes all the difference.
These two upcoming weeks are going to be even more breath-focused than usual, as we move through a deep, chest-opening Vinyasa flow, practicing the technique of the Ujjayi breath and synchronizing breath with movements.
So, just breathe...
See you on the mat at 5.30 tomorrow Monday, and Wednesday.
