In Amber’s regular classes the body is aligned to maximize the flow of energy. Postures are held long enough to allow space in which to go deeper. Classes are also dynamic and energizing, and the inner body is engaged to cultivate health. Working in this way leads to a greater release of tension.
These sessions focus on the connection between breath and movement. The exercises are practiced in a state of conscious awareness, in order to promote suppleness in the joints. One becomes familiar with the various body parts and their processes. There is no undue strain in the postures and we cultivate a flow that is conducive to relaxation and overall happiness and balance in the body.
Yogis measure life not in minutes and hours but in breaths. Only a body that is truly relaxed can receive the full swell of inhalation. Inhalation is the vehicle of prana or vital energy. Therefore we stretch, extend and reach in order to become softer and more relaxed. We strengthen to support our flexibility and to become more stable in ourselves. All this leads to a clearer state of mind, an experience of more space on every level. Amber Scott
