The Sivananda form teaches breath control and is the key to the class – Movement and breath synchronised, no movement without a breath. It is a slow moving form although at times very powerful. There are rest periods when the body goes into relaxation eyes closed to regenerate and establish deep yogic rhythmic breathing in to the abdomen.
It is based around twelve classical postures. It is of the classical style known as Hatha Yoga, the oldest and most respected form studied world wide. I love the way this yoga has in no way taken the ego of one person but is the study of wise sages many thousands of years ago.
