Moving Through the Layers of Life

Troy Hadeed

In this two-part series, Troy Hadeed shows you that the only way to make positive changes in your life is to acknowledge the things in your life that are stagnant or holding you back. In the first practice, Discovering Layers, Troy focuses on internal rotation of the body - encouraging you to really experience, not only each posture, but the space in between each posture. Understanding what that space holds for us, and being okay with it, can bring lightness to dark or negative places we are holding on to. Once we can see it, we can get rid of it! In episode two, Shedding Layers, Troy brings the focus to external rotation of the body. Time to let go of the things in our lives that no longer serve us and open that space for growth, inspiration, and magic! Troy's vinyasa style of teaching builds the sequences layer by layer. Allowing the body to get to know the sequence so you can let go of what the pose should look like and feel what is happening in your body instead.

Are you ready to find out what life has in store for you? Troy is ready to guide you on that path!

I am intrigued by the descriptions of these lessons, but can't see what level of practitioner might benefit. I'm a Level 1, and don't want to start a 49 minute program only to be led into poses I'm not ready for. Perhaps this is a problem with how Gaia's beautiful new web formatting? It's missing some of the information we came to rely on?

Hey Lisa!!! These classes are generally all level classes but that would assume that the practitioner has some experience of practice, and this even is a generalization as everyone has different limitations you know. I guess its one of the obstacles of practicing online and not one-on-one with a teacher. If the practice of yoga is new to you, mabye i would recommend trying my series "Advance your practice' - especially episode 1 and 2 might give you some insight and be more appealing at this time. Hope that helps. I am always here if you have any questions or feedback.

because it was the first practice with letting go in mind it was indeed quite a challenge!!
I feel though with time this will become much easyer to pose as well as to breath and let go of all the cobwebs, with this in mind I have decided to make this my morning practice for a little while to see how it go's
very enjoyable and moving
