Soften, unwind, release
There are no upcoming sessions
In this uncertain and seemingly overwhelming climate we find ourselves in, it is through the alignment of the body with breath that one can discover the alignment of mind, self and inner intelligence. A process of undoing rather than doing, feeling rather than thinking and being present with self in the moment, yoga can create an inner peace calm and equanimity, that we can draw upon both on and off the mat. Balancing nurturing and healing from inside out.
Or, as the 13th-century Zen master Dogen wrote, “To study the self is to forget the self.” The actor’s instrument is their entire self and yoga offers both an inner and outer means to health vitality and wellbeing both personally and professionally.
Tracey-Anne Liles offers a free guided 60 minute slow flow, suited to all levels incorporating breathing technique, meditation and yoga. Tracey-Anne trained at Central School of Speech and Drama as an actor and has spent most of her career working physically with the body. When not being a creative, Tracey-Anne teaches yoga and meditation throughout west London, mainly for Triyoga.
