This class will provide an emphasis on breathwork and deep stretches for relaxation of the nervous system. Through a passive and relaxed style of yoga, the goal is to assist with the activation of the parasympathetic nervous system. The class progresses to a state of deeper mental quietude.
Gentle Yoga for Relaxation
We start off our time together sharing the beautiful Grail Mantra (view on Youtube) flow, then gently explore poses and breath practices that help connect us to our precious bodies with an accepting, welcoming attitude. While guests are encouraged and guided to approach the entire session as a meditation, we bring each class to a close with time for stillness and deep rest.
Gentle Hatha and Restorative Yoga
The class starts with seated meditation inviting connection with the earth and the chakras, followed by gentle movement on the floor to open and stretch the body, awakening connection to breath and flow; then I do the morning mantra which then leads into standing poses; and I finally end the session with just one or two restorative poses.
Kundalini Yoga - coming 2023
Kundalini Yoga is a form of yoga that involves breathing exercises, mantras, and poses designed to activate your Kundalini energy or Shakti at the base of your spine. As we gently awaken this energy, we enhance our awareness of self and our environment, this practice is also called 'yoga of awareness'.
Yoga Flow - coming 2023
In this Yin yoga class, we focus on deepening flows to gently open the muscles and joints throughout the body. The emphasis is also on breath work and mindfulness and how they relate to the physical body.
