This Beginner Yoga Series was created specifically for the Transplant Community with a more embodied approach to yoga. Going through the transplant process involves challenges and a variety of feelings and emotions that can disturb our relationship with our bodies, so this series is designed with the focus more on body connection and awareness than on learning specific yoga postures.
Yoga is about uniting all parts of yourself, and this beginner series introduces you to that concept through bringing awareness to your body, your movement, your breath and your sensations, and to bring your relationship with your body back into harmony. You will be guided to listen to your body to make the best movement choices for yourself in each moment – your body has great intelligence, and we want to listen to it!
The series will gradually take you through a mix of movements and postures, in a flowing style, starting from the ground (your foundation to move from) to standing movement and some simple breath practices. You will begin to learn what quality of movement you need on any given day, stronger or softer, energising or nurturing.
By the end of the series, you will have learnt enough to create a short yoga practice for yourself at home or have the foundation to join an organised group class. You will have also learnt how to start to listen to your body and enjoy movement.
