Schedule changes this week!

Hi Yogis,

There are a few yoga class changes this week.

The Thursday night yoga class, May 4th (6:30-8:00) will be held on Wednesday May 3rd this week (6:30-8:00) at the Pentraeth Memorial Hall in Pentraeth, LL75 8YH.

This is because our normal venue is being used for the local elections, on Thursday May 4th and I do not have enough room at the house for everyone. The hall is a nice big space and there is plenty of parking, so I hope everyone will come. If you cannot make this class you could come along on Tuesday yoga, (7:00-8:30) at the same venue (PMH).

The Saturday morning kinda gentle yoga, May 6th, (10:00-11:15) is cancelled this week only and this is because I am attending a yoga workshop in Manchester, with Matt Ryan.

Back to the normal schedule next week and see you in class! emilykyleyogablue-meditation

Ujjayi Breath/ooh-JAH-yee

I found this information about using the Ujjayi breath during practice, on a Yogahub post and thought it was clearly written. If you want to read the whole article see the link below.

The ujjayi breath (ooh-JAH-yee) is translated as the victorious breath. It allows us to breathe in a controlled manner. It is a deep full sound that increases the movement of the diaphragm and lengthens the spine. The soft consistent sound aids the even flow of the breath and helps to build heat in the body, which is conducive to stretching and cleanses and purifies the body. Unlike other pranayamas that are generally practiced while seated or lying down, ujjayi is maintained throughout our yoga practice.

The ujjayi breath is the starting point for any asana practice. The steadiness, sound, and depth of the ujjayi breath help to link the mind, body, and spirit to the present moment. This unification adds richness and depth to your practice and helps to cultivate presence and awareness.

With consistent practice breathing lengthens throughout the practice, awareness of your body’s needs of movement increase and injury is unlikely. If breathing is soft and consistent it is almost impossible to push too hard. Always remember that breathing should never be at the expense of a posture   Throughout your yoga practice, aim to maintain the length and smoothness of the breath as much as possible, endeavor to maintain the quality of breath throughout the practice.
