"Meditation must begin with the body." (Iyengar) Rooted in the Hatha yoga tradition, Cundy customizes a series of postures (asanas) for each of her private clients in order to help them re-member who they are.
The body does not lie. When we allow movement to arise from the inside out, we are more fully alive. At the Luminosity Studio, students are encouraged not to "workout" but to "work in."
Bodywork without the breath is just calisthenics. When we add the sweetness of the breath to any posture or movement, we deepen our relationship to the present moment. This is how we wake up!
Why Private Yoga?
At Luminosity, Cundy's approach to working with students is based on the spoken and unspoken dialogue between teacher and student. There are none of the distractions that can accompany group classes. The session is all about you and your self care.
Each session supports the person you are when you walk in the studio that day.
The sessions are quiet, just right for the person who is more comfortable in a small setting.
A private session at Luminosity is an opportunity for individualized attention and hands-on adjustments, particularly while in the asanas.
At Luminosity, not only will you realign your musculoskeletal system through asana, you are also invited to balance your inner and outer experience.
"Any time we move and breathe, we move from graphite to diamond..." (Dr. Ruddy). Through your yoga practice at Luminosity, you come to embody your best self.
As you walk in the studio, the noisy, busy world is left behind. You are invited to cultivate stillness as you move on the mat, lie on the floor, sit on the cushion, and remember who you are.
