“If your mind is empty, it is always ready for anything, it is open to everything. In the beginner's mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert's mind there are few. ” ― Shunryu Suzuki

SPECIAL CLASS: SUBTLE FORMS OF YOGA

April 14th, 2021 18:30-20:00 @ YouTube Live
 

In this class we will focus on the more subtle forms of the yoga practice, we will explore awakening our pelvic floor and naval regions and integrate these complex patterns into our regular yoga practice. These patterns are called in the yoga terminology - "Mula Bandha" and "Uddiyana Bandha".

When it comes to the subtle forms of yoga practice, one must create the conditions that allow these patterns to arise, and then let the outcome be as it is, thus a certain amount of surrender is required.
It is more suited for those with some yoga experience, but complete beginners can join as well and receive some benefits.

This class will take place on the YouTube Live platform

hatha-vinyasa yoga

A breath-centered practice.

Suitable for all levels and anyone 16 or older

Description:

A yoga method which is based on linking movement with breath in an intelligent mindful way and finding a balance between effort and ease. Part of the practice is a flow of movement and posture as one is "riding" the breath, the other part involves holding postures for a little longer while maintaining the internal flow in a meditative quality. This kind of practice has a calming effect on the mind and the nervous system, it also enhances strength and flexibility, and gives an overall feeling of well-being and health.

yoga for emotional healing

Special yoga techniques that address trauma and grief, which we all suffer from to some level

Suitable for all levels and anyone 16 or older

Description:

We will learn and practice breathing exercises, we will chant mantras from the yoga tradition, we will work with our subtle body, get familiar with prana (subtle energy), we will meditate and also use group dynamic techniques.

Yoga, at it's essence, is a healing methodology. The original yogis realized that the body-mind-breath are one and discovered ways to increase the state of peace and wellbeing and decrease suffering and distress. We all need healing, whether it's from trauma, grief, depression or anxiety, or in a more preventative way of re-patterning our self-harming tendencies.

This class is open to all people, from all backgrounds, with any level of experience in yoga or other contemplative practices. Important disclaimer: this practice does not substitute therapy of any kind, if you suffer from any condition it is highly recommended that you seek professional help.

yoga coaching

Suitable for anyone in need of guidance, reflection or support in life

Description:

We will only be using tools and knowledge from the yoga and Buddhist traditions. In the sessions we will do some talking, breathing and meditating, as well as other exercises. It is a process that is meant to change the patterns of thinking and behaving from non-constructive to constructive ones, and to ultimately take a few steps towards resolving ourselves and finding peace within.

This is not psychotherapy or any other formal type of therapy. It is merely a guided and self-reflective experience of how to live a more present and (w)holistic lifestyle, externally and internally.
