Planting Seeds with Amy Bratton

On Wednesday, in Amy’s Prana Vinyasa class, she talked about how the New Year has started and how we each have been blessed with a clean slate to work from as 2011 begins. She asked us to take the time in yoga class to plant seeds that were meant to represent aspects of our life that would grow throughout the year. As we would move from pose to pose, she would instruct us to plant seeds, with our palms in downward dog, or with our knees and toes in child’s pose. With great skill she lead us through a seamless Prana Vinyasa class, gently correcting postures, her calm voice instructing our movements and our thoughts.
