An Introduction to Esoteric Yoga – simple everyday movements

An Introduction to Esoteric Yoga – simple everyday movements

The focus of Esoteric Yoga is on the quality of connection and presence we have with the body and its movements. By developing a re-connection with ourselves in this way the quality of stillness that is within us becomes more familiar and we begin to feel the effect that moving from stillness has in our lives. We start to build a steady ease and presence of being, which we can take into our day-to-day lives.

In this experiential 11-minute video we introduce part of the Esoteric Yoga template. Starting in a supportive seated position, moving to a supine position, we bring attention and focus to how we are feeling in our body and being, while keeping the mind with the body as it moves.

Before we begin and as part of preparing a loving supportive space for you, here are a few tips to support the body to let go and surrender more deeply.

  • Heated room if chilly
  • Comfortable clothing and socks
  • Mat or padded base for you to lay on
  • Cushion under the buttocks if needed to support your lower back while sitting
  • Pillows for your head and under the knees (if needed) when laying down
  • Blanket and anything else you feel will support your body
  • Eye pillow or eye mask to support a steady inner focus
  • A space where you will not be distracted

You may also choose to sit against a wall to support your back if needed, or bend one knee while in the seated position, as you will see demonstrated in the video.
