World Yoga Day – Colchester

Today we marked Colchester’s part in World Yoga Day, from 11 AM – 1 PM, new friends and growing yoga practitioners met at the Tree Room  and flowed the way through a 2 part class. Focusing on igniting and balance in the first half, we slowed it down and let go through shoulder and hip opening in the second part.

The class was held to donate money to the nominated charity,FIAN International.

It can be nerve-racking to have one’s picture snapped during any time, let alone in a yoga pose. But the participants graciously allowed some images to paint a picture of the quiet energy and action going on at the event. As Soul Flow Vinyasa Yoga grows, so will its students and teacher. Love the team effort!

As a thank you to the participants, we will be having a drawing a week from today for a voucher for a 30 minute personal yoga training session with Alexis. The Tree Room proprietor also donated 10% off the rental fee of the beautiful space to be contributed toward our beneficiary.

We even had cupcakes! How sweet.  Namaste to all.

Ardha chandrasana, half moon pose. As a teacher I can see how demoing the pose needs some tweaking...we all put ourselves out there today. Namaste!

I got the inspiration for the sequential progression through shoulders/hips and where to begin in the shoulders from this wonderful video .
