Jos takes us through the idea that, even when we’re struggling, we have a thread that is woven with this about us to create the fabric of life.  Using moves of the Form to emphasize the grounding that we need, she rounds it off with a very peaceful Tian Xiao.

Jos responds to subjects of interest from the group by showing exercises that address issues of anxiety, balance, presence and awareness.  Tian Xiao is then gone through as a source for grounding, equanimity and simply being with what is.

Jos draws attention to our breath in this class: being conscious of taking breath in and letting it go, to help us relax and become grounded, especially in times of adversity and challenge.  She keeps this focus throughout a range of exercises and movements drawn from the Short and Long Forms.

Jos reprises and reinforces a range of practices that Tew brought to his retreat on Equanimity and Courage.  These practices help us to remain centred and balanced through opening ourselves to connection with Earth (groundedness),  Sky (spaciousness), Man-Woman (relationship) and ultimately to the Transcendent (Infinite Compassion).

Jos gives particular attention to body alignment and proportionality in movement.  She carries this awareness into an exploration of the component movements of the brush-knee & press, and repel (quieten) the monkey, sequences.  Jos closes her class with Metta Meditation.
