BREATHE WITH THE BEAT
For breath is life, and if you breathe well you will live long on earth. ~Sanskrit Proverb
Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts. ~Thích Nhất Hạnh
Mindfulness is bringing more attention to the present moment, most often though paying attention to our breath and body. This practice brings mind into balanced rhythm with body and breath, through the soulful sounds of rhythmic disco frequencies.
Pranayama is the bridge between the subtle body and the physical body, it orients our mind into the moment and controlling it with the rhythm of the beat is a wonderful and joyful tool for both calming (breathing for a longer rhythm) and energising (breathing for 4 or 2 beats with the music) our presence and organising our attention.
Music and especially warm rhythmic music is the heartbeat of our soul and so with mindful lyrics, soulful harmonics and familiar frequencies, our inner world is softened and our hearts lifted, there is a natural and ecstatic high that comes with this consistent regulation and attunement with the breath and beat.
It was developed and created by me, Karla Kelly over the past 11 years since I began Yoga Training in 2009.
The music I work with is usually deep house, with a flavour of disco! In 2018-19 I’ve begun to work with a wider range of music (any music with a beat works for this practice)
