Anyone for Candlelight Yoga….?

I have been cover teaching a class on Tuesday evenings at the Dance Attic in Fulham and  during tonights class we had a blackout 10 minutes into the class – midway through the Sun salutations! Now the initial reaction of everyone was to laugh – bearing in mind it was pitch black, I invited everyone to sit in easy pose and we continued with a wonderful meditation for 5 minutes until one of the staff brought in a few electric candles.  We continued the class in the dark with very little light and it was amazing so atmospheric. Everyone’s focus was so much better than usual because they were totally concentrating on themselves and not concerned with anyone around them because they couldn’t see them- what a blessing!!

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if every practice could be like this?
