In this class, we will be focussing on achieving stability and focus in standing poses. It is often the case that, when going through a dynamic and strenuous sequence, our minds start to wander, and our focus shifts away from what actually matters.
For instance, we often forget about what’s happening with our feet. Or, as is often the case with standing poses, we focus too much on the front leg, which is apparently doing most of the work, and not nearly enough on the back leg. This one-sidedness is something we will try to avoid in this class. By holding each pose for a little longer than usual, we will give ourselves time to spread our attention evenly across our body and start to see that no part is secondary: all parts play an equally important role in holding the pose together.
The aim of this class is to pay due attention to the parts of the body we usually ignore. Throughout the practice, we will make a point of anchoring ourselves through our feet and giving some extra mental energy to the back leg. Second of all, the idea of any class is to become aware of why we do certain actions as opposed to just doing them blindly.
