WHAT TO EXPECT
Class takes the form of modern western postural yoga, taught within the context of Buddhist & Yogic philosophies.
Emphasis is on movement with mindful awareness, learning how to develop a deeply contemplative experience. We learn how to 'tune in’ so that we can feel our way, rather than forcing in any way.
We work with the body intelligently, progressively, integrating movement with breath.
The fluidity of vinyasa (conscious placement) is combined with periods of holding asanas for more extended lengths and when appropriate using props to further deepen the felt sense.
The dynamic & fluid practices heat the body and build strength, endurance & flexibility. The restorative postures help relax the muscles, tissues and nervous system encouraging a release of deeply held tension while replenishing energy.
An integrative & absorbed experience.
