Death and Renewal: A New Year’s Eve Yin Yang Special Class with Leigh Khoo, Dec 30 & 31

Valley Point
Thursday & Friday, December 30 & 31, 2021
10am - 12pm

When I first offered this death and renewal themed class last New Year’s Eve, it felt like we were all ready to shed several months’ worth of heaviness, so as to receive 2021 with hope and lightness. But evidently the universe had her own plan — it seemed like there was a lot more we had to learn to let go of. And here we are, nearing the end of another year, perhaps a little wiser, but likely also a little weary and in need of a reset.

This year’s New Year’s Eve special class will still be inspired by Lord Nataraja’s cosmic dance, which symbolises the perpetual cycles of life and death. It is still a reminder that every ending is in itself a beginning; that death is a necessary end for the next cycle of renewal to begin. However, we will spend a little less time in the fire (read: sweaty flow), and a little more in the quiet moments — of dissolution, as well as in the hushed softness of conception (read: yin and pranayama). It’s the way I envision we can all remember to hold ourselves and our loved ones from here on — gently, tenderly, reverently.

Please bring along your writing materials. The session will close with a visualisation journalling exercise so we can receive 2022 with open hearts and clear intentions.

Leigh found Yoga 14 years ago in a tiny studio in Chinatown. As much as she enjoyed the dance-like flow of postures, it was the meditation practice after the asana sessions that really drew her in. Her first teacher Sunil Dahiya used to ask: “Where are you in your body? Meditate on that.” That set the tone for Leigh’s Yoga journey since, and she believes that the potent combination of asana, pranayama and meditation holds the key to unlocking our deeper, higher wisdom.

Leigh has been teaching since 2013, and over the years, learned to understand and, more importantly, respect anatomical differences. Because of that, she believes in creating safe spaces that empower practitioners to step into their intuitive wisdom and practise according to their inner alignment — asanas that look right on the outside may not necessarily feel so within. She continues to be influenced by her teachers Emily Kuser, Nitya Mohan, David Frawley, Jo Phee and Octavio Salvado; as well as the teachings of Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tantra, which often form the energetic or philosophical pillars of her classes.

Leigh's classes are embodied, intuitive and poetic, with a huge emphasis on breath awareness. She sees life to be the greatest teacher, with every moment serving as an opportunity to connect to our highest self and to live with intention, compassion and integrity.
