Most of us practise yoga in order to feel less stressed out in our lives. But sometimes taking yoga too seriously can have the opposite effect! This two-hour lesson will be a lighthearted exploration of the playfulness of yoga. We will begin with a brief talk about the psychology and physiology of trying too hard, and discuss a set of methods which can help us approach our yoga practice in a more cheerful way. We will then put these tools to use in a well-rounded movement sequence, an uplifting meditation, and a regenerating relaxation.
