Yoga at Park with Erny will be held every Sunday morning 8am at Fort Canning Park.
About Yoga at Park
Take in the wonderful landscape of Fort Canning Park while we flow through our practice conciously. Breathe better with the clean air surrounded us in the morning as compare to breathing in a confined space. Often, as we think that we are struggling in the pose – you will see squirells running around the trees,their play ground, and it put a smile to our face and without realizing that the earlier struggle wasn’t that significant any longer.
I will take you through 60 minutes (maybe longer) practice of gentle yoga, series of sun salutation to connect our breathe with our body and mind and holding some poses inpired by yin yoga. This practice is designed to be suitable for all level of yoga practioners and modifications will be introduced to cater to all our different body structure and needs. I only have one requirement for you to practice with me, breathe :)
I will be offering meditation sessions pre or post practice – depending on majority and I welcome all even those who has not done meditation before. To be honest, I don’t empty my mind when I meditate – what a lot of us will think people do during meditation sessions. I meditate to make room for “me” time and to allow myself to be calm and at peace with myself. Not all of us will be able to stay still for a period of time and we may be lost during the process, it is perfectly okay. That is the whole point of meditation, getting to know yourself. Just tell yourself this, “OK, I am going to sit here and close my eyes, listen carefully to my own breathe (hey, do I always breathe this hard?) and be curious about what is happening within me. Ok, 2 minutes has passed and I still don’t get it and my feet are numb. I am not getting it this time, I will try again next time round. Maybe I should will ask my teacher on how to prevent feet from getting numb (seek for alignment advise). — I am here again, sitting down crossed legged attempting to meditate. I am just going to focus on my breathe this time (focus only at one thing at a time). Ok, this is better than the last time.”
I am not saying that you have to meditate 30 minutes at your first attempt. Just ignore the time and allow yourself to learn by itself. Simple?
