Description

THE SHONA PROJECT AND KARLA KELLY PRESENT

Breathe with the Beat at Project Nightclub!

Class for Girls on 15/12/19 6-7pm with The Shona Project.

Movement is a great way for everyone to deal with stress and anxiety, so we invite the teenagers of Waterford to join Karla from the House of Yoga for a special all-on-your-feet class which is all about tuning up your own ‘instrument’ and understanding your body and mind as a unique biocomputer with its own ‘wifi’. Breathe with the Beat is both a breathing technique and the name of a set of movements co-ordinating breath rhythms, body movements and the 4/4 beat of music.

The movements are physically very simple, meaning anyone can practice them. The magic, and depth of the practice is in the breath work - we are breathing consciously into each part of the body as we move it in rhythm with the beat. So we become more and more ‘present’ with ourselves and our bodies, and experience of the group or ‘House’. Practising in unity in community in a group means that we co-create an experience of balancing our own rhythms with the beat, while those around us do the same. I call this experience House of Yoga.

In the Irish language the word for breath is the same word for spirit - anam - so in the class we are infusing every part of the body with our own unique spirit!

A new study in the Journal of Neurophisology reveals that paced breathing uses neural networks beyond the brain stem that are tied to emotion, attention, and body awareness. By tapping into these networks using the breath, we gain access to a powerful tool for regulating our responses to stress and anxiety.

The best thing about this class is that it keeps you really focused in the moment, in your body and because of the balanced breathing. We feel so much space inside and out and are full of good feelings, because we infuse so much oxygen into all parts of the body!

This free class is an introduction to a 7 week Yogasonics course for teens starting in January.
