Vinyasa or Ashtanga yoga is the dynamic synchronizing of the breath with a progressive series of postures, resulting in improved circulation and increased body strength. The Yoga asana is one of the ways we “unite” (YOGA = union or yoke) the Mind, Body and Soul. She will bring the experience of breath work (Pranayama), Asana’s (poses), Buddhist Philosophy (Hindu folklore) to her students. Her newly found love for the Singing Bowl of Tibet will be played at the close of each class. The sound of the bowl can soothe the nervous system and further heal your body.
His class is a peaceful, yet vigorous, vinyasa yoga practice that focuses on flowing through basic poses, maintaining them with proper alignment, moving with the breath and finding stillness in the postures; A traditional Hatha yoga classes combined with elements of Zen Buddhism. All levels welcome.
