Why is the room kept at 40ºC ?
The room is heated to approximately 32ºC.
This is a perfect class for all levels who enjoy doing yoga in a moderately heated room and are interested in expanding their yoga repertoire of both flow and static postures. Class will include basic sun salutations, standing & balancing postures, yoga-core specific postures, introduction to arm balances, hip and spinal awakening postures.
The sequence will be challenging, yet accessible for all levels.
Integrating breath and movement, awareness and alignment, strength and flexibility.
A vigorous all levels class flowing through a series of energizing, dynamic and fun postures that liberate the flow of prana (life force) in your body. Everything that flows in your body (breath, blood, cerebral spinal fluid, lymph, emotions etc.) is a form of prana (life force). Emphasis on breath as the key, and relaxation in action the way, to be in the flow.
Vinyasa Flow is the dance of opposites ha (sun or yang) / tha (moon or yin), brahmana (expansion) / longhana (contraction), sthira (stability) / sukha (freedom).
Asanas (postures) are the rafts/vehicles, alignment is the map, pranayama (breath) the wind, consciousness your guide for smooth sailing.
Long-held, passive stretching to enhance flexibility in the connective tissue that forms our joints. We use props to support the your body in this deep release.
Focusing primarily on the less flexible areas of the body such as lower back, hips, shoulders and sacrum.
A highly restorative class to compliment the other yang styles of yoga we offer and your active lifestyle.
Well suited for Pre & Post Natal students, all ages, levels of fitness and flexibility.
