Rosalie has been teaching Mindful Yoga classes at the North London Buddhist centre since 2007. The classes integrate traditional Hatha Yoga postures with meditative awareness. The class is a meditation in movement class and involves a slow and reflective practice of moving, which enhances attentional capacities, bodily awareness and general well-being and flexibility. It is a practice of bodily- attunement and embodiment, that allows students to develop a greater awareness of how they are, and to carry this awareness forward in to their daily lives, both for the benefit of themselves and others. People report feeling deeply rested and in contact with themselves as a result of the class.
The class is suitable for beginners and intermediate students and is grounded on attitudes of curiosity, beginners mind, kindness, patience, and importantly non-striving.
The class is between 6:30-8:30pm on a drop in basis and costs £10. The venue is the North London Buddhist Centre, 72 Holloway Road, London N7
Rosalie’s approach is drawn from 23 years of personal Yoga and Meditation practice, a formative experience in Iyengar Yoga, a teacher Training in Scaravelli Yoga, her love of the Feldenkrias Awareness Through Movement practices, and her experience as a Mindfulness teacher. Rosalie trains mindfulness teachers to teach Mindful Movement.
