In yoga we are often encouraged to listen to our body, but not always supported in inquiring further about what that means for us. What sensations should we just surrender to and what sensations call for action and change? How do we learn to recognize and feel what happens in the body more clearly and deeply? What are the benefits of placing sensitivity to physical sensation at the heart of your practice?
Join the inquiry in this urban retreat with three slow-flowing yoga classes. Book as a 9 hour mini-course or just pop by for individual classes. Max 10 people in each class to ensure time for detailed instruction sensitive to the needs of your body.
The classes are especially suited to those with an interest in the subtle, fluid and meditative aspects of yoga posture practice. When booked together, the three classes form an introduction to the basic principles of Open Flow Yoga.
The retreat takes place in Brigitte’s private yoga studio in Sluseholmen with a beautiful view to the sky and the water. If you want to combine the classes with a walk in nature, an ocean dive or lunch at a café with a friend, there are plenty of good opportunities in the area. Birgitte will provide tea and a little snack after each class.
Friday the 6th 17.30-20.30: Open Flow Restore
A quiet restorative practice where we stay close to the floor. We will use slow and gentle movements to release and soften the tissues and supported yoga postures to relax and release unnecessary tension. We will work with the principles of yielding to earth and engaging subtle pre-movements.
Saturday the 7th 9.30-12.30: Open Flow Sensitize
A soft and continuous movement meditation, tuning you into your ability to feel physical sensation and inviting it to guide your movements. We will work with the principles of sensitization, moving from what we can feel rather than from what we can train ourselves to do. The class explores fluctuating, unwinding movements that hydrate and soften tissues while inviting you to reconnect with your inner teacher.
Sunday the 8th 9.30-12.30: Open Flow Energize
A dynamic and meditative practice where we allow the playful aspect of open Flow Yoga to emerge from our connection with gravity. We will integrate the practices of yielding and sensitizing in open flows with more energizing movements such as osscilations and waves. The class may incorporate more classical yoga posture flows, giving it a sensitive and creative twist.
