Breathe to Move
Connecting Mind, Body & Spirit through movement & breath, a gentle flow with emphasis on pranayama. Because the breath is a powerful tool for training mindfulness, engaging the muscles & both gathering & releasing energy, all classes begin and end with attention to this detail, just as all movement depends on it. Breathe to Move is gentle to protect the joints, slow to strengthen muscle groups, deep to encourage blood flow for healing, and breath-led to facilitate a mindful practice.
Flex and Stretch
These classes help prevent the effects of ageing on our bodies and will gently increase fitness, coordination, muscle tone and flexibility. The combination of flexing and stretching muscles relieves tension, contributes to body awareness and overall good health. Working at your own fitness level, we will use active and passive stretching. Focusing on the breath release tension throughout the body as we stretch.
Heart of Yoga
Yoga unifies the body, breath and mind and the benefits extend to the heart. This class will meet each person’s concerns and interests using asanas (poses and counter-poses) linked to the rhythm of the breath (pranayama). The goal for this class is to deepen our self awareness and to bring harmony and order in our bodies and minds. If anyone can breathe they can practice yoga. May attending this class inspire each practitioner to work toward their personal practice; helping to give them inner awareness and clarity to their life.
