THE ELEVEN HOUSE, Peratallada, GIRONA – January 25th
febrero 3, 2020/
My first time in the famous little Medieval village of Peratallada!!!! AND WOW! Beyond charming! Deep into the countryside we go, and into a little village, down cobbled streets, and we find the ELEVEN HOUSE! What a house to OOooo & Aaaaa over. Every corner has been designed to emote peace. A beautiful mix of modern lightness and heavy historic features.
I like to start my workshops off by checking in with the breath. This is how my teacher organised his workshops and it had a great impact on my own personal practice. This emphasis given to the breath at the start of the practice, allows the students to feel its importance. And it allows me to quickly check-in with each student to assist if they are having any difficulty finding their ujjayi pranayama.
You must make sure your body is aligned correctly, or you could injure yourself over time. It takes both patience and discipline to correct yourself in this posture so that you can avoid injuries. Once you can accomplish this, you will see this pose as a powerful , strengthening movement in your practice.
