About Long,Slow,Deep Yoga…

A long, slow and deep yoga practice is fascinating and intense. We spend every moment within the intense grip of very deep hip, hamstring and shoulder stretches for a very long time, in a very slow way. Imagine this… you are asked to hold a very deep hamstring for 2 – 5 minutes straight. No fidgeting. No adjusting. No eye contact with your friends. No distractions. No excuses. Simply you. Your deep almost primal breath and journey into a place in your mind you don’t often face.

LSD experience is very profound. In the class we are challenged to push past our ego – the one tempting us to quit, to notice the itch, to respond to the struggle, to huff, puff and pander to distractions. We are asked to play at our edge and a little past it whilst still enacting loving-kindness towards ourselves – knowing how to challenge yourself whilst knowing when to ease back is a true test in self awareness, compassion and insight.
