Dan has been leading blindfolded yoga sessions for over 5 years in the belief that they offer great potential to access parts of your physical practice that are otherwise often overlooked. Om Yoga Show and Yoga Like Water are incredibly happy to lead this 90 minute charity class in collaboration with and in support of the Royal National Institute for the Blind and the fantastic work they do with the blind and partially blind. To remove the sense of sight brings a greater depth to practice; we become unconcerned with what a pose, other yogis or the teacher looks like and more attuned to what the practice feels like – becoming familiar with our bodily sensations and paying attention to what they are telling us.In this session we move slowly through postures, no names are given in Sanskit or English, only simple instructions for your mind and body to interpret as you feel best, rounding off with a gentle yoga nidra. There will be a number of Yoga Like Water teachers and students present to make sure that everyone is held in a safe space whilst Dan leads you on a journey through the senses and an exploration into what it is like to have one of those disconnected.
Proceeds donated to the Royal National Institute for the Blind.
Please note that an entrance ticket to the OM Yoga Show London is also required for all workshops.
