A class on the grass at Churchill Island Heritage Farm

on March 11, 2013

How I came to attend an outdoor Hatha Yoga class on Churchill Island, Vic, is reminiscent of the Dem Bones Song …

* At the Iyengar workshop I attended in Melbourne at the end of February, i mentioned to Peter Scott that i was going to visit Phillip Island.
* Peter introduced me to another workshop participant – Fiona Rawson – who lives, and teaches yoga on Phillip Island.
* I attended an Iyengar class with Fiona and asked her about other classes I may be able to attend whilst visiting the area.
* Fiona told me about an outdoor yoga class on Churchill Island…

I went to a class on the grass, under a tree, with an ocean view, at Churchill Island on Saturday 9 March. This was my first outdoor practice session. I have to admit my focus wavered a little at times as Galahs, Willy Wagtails and geese flew overhead, along with a few sharp nips from ants, etc.

The class was lead by Karen Easton. One of the techniques that Karen gave the class – which really resonated with me – was in relation to breathing, ie breathe in from the soles of your feet to the top of your head.

Practising yoga outdoors was a lovely experience. Resting in the lap of Mother Nature was up lifting.

Thanks to Karen for a lovely class in a special location.
