An hour of self enquiry on your yoga mat. The texture of breaths, the sensations that arise in your body and moving through that with movement. Let the sounds of the shruti box wash over you as we move, breathe and just be together. The style of teaching is constantly evolving with the teacher and organically adjusting to the needs of the group. Tamzen teaches in a therapeutic style, using the basis of Vinyāsa - with every breath there is movement and with every breath there is movement- collaborating with the sitar to leave you feeling in a place of transformation.
