BREATH & PRANAYAMA
Our breath is the best support to anchor in the present moment. The way we breathe impacts our lives in many ways. Let the breath guide the movement so that the breathing acts as a bridge between our body, mind and spirit. We integrate a pranayama (breathing practice) and bandha (internal locks) practice to activate life force. The retention of the breath used in this practice is supporting the pranic pressure, to find calmness and steadiness while the breath is still and firmly held (either in or out).
This class has a continuous energy while practicing different yoga asanas. Letting the breath guide the movement to stimulate the energy within our bodies and allow prana to flow so our mind can relax. The postures are kept save and simple and are held a bit longer than in a flow class- focussing on building strength and flexibility and cultivating that balance over time.
Vinyasa is a type of yoga that links movement and breath to create balance in the mind and body. Vinyasa aligns within a sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow.
Yoga Nidra is a direct path into a full and complete release of everything that pulls us out of the most precious healing experience we have- it helps us ease into the present moment.Let this class support you in the process of letting go, surrendering, allowing, listening, feeling, being breathed and being. Inside this experience, you meet your purest most essential self.
Restorative practice for its relaxing, calming and healing effect. It is considered an ideal balance to our hectic and stressful modern lifestyles.
