Bunbury – Wednesdays 11-12:30
Held in Bunbury at YogaSoma over six Wednesdays only (31st May – 5th July), classes of yoga will be offered, usually incorporating simple asanas, pranayama, and a mantra-based meditation.
What to bring
Yoga mat and water.
If you do not have a yoga mat, we do have some spares for your use.
What to expect on the day
Each class opens with the Adi Mantra (Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo – ‘I bow to the divine wisdom, the divine teacher within’) and most classes will also include the Mangala Charan Mantra (Aad Guray Nameh, Jugaad Guray Nameh, Sat Guray Nameh, Siri Guru Day Vay Nameh – ‘I bow to the primal wisdom, I bow the the wisdom eternally true, I bow to the true wisdom, I bow to the great unseen wisdom’);
This is usually followed by some pranayam (breathing excercises) and/or warm-ups;
The Kriya (a set of postures in a specified sequence) follows;
A relaxation (a very important part of the practice!);
And usually a meditation with either vocal or silent mantra;
The closing sequence, which includes part of an Irish blessing (‘May the long time Sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure light within you guide your way on’) followed by either one or three intonations of Sat Nam (‘truth is my name/identity’).
We normally begin with intonation of three OM (or three ONG), followed by sequences to release stresses accumulated with the body’s multi-levelled ‘skin’ (fascia). This is usually followed by some pranayama and classical yoga asanas.
