The Open Level is an invitation for people with a keen interest in this field of the workshop. It is a meeting space for a crowd with varying experiences: the class will be mixed levels. The level of each individual will be accounted for and variations will be given to adapt the class and poses to suit everyone. Whether you are a first-timer or a more advanced yoga practitioner you are welcome.
Start the morning off right with a long session of pranayama (breathing exercises), followed by a slow and deep vinyasa flow, to get your body energised and your blood flowing. As movers, it is very important that we connect with our breath while dancing to make our movements more organic, fluid and controlled. Pranayama is perfect training to learn how to control and connect with our breathing
Pilates balances the body through core strength exercises while working on flexibility and awareness, focus on the mind-body connection through graceful movements. During these classes we will go deep into the understanding of each exercise for maximum execution. This class is Open Level and is therefore suitable for everyone!
This is the calm-down space of your day where your body, mind and soul are rejuvenated. Here we will let the muscles rest holding passive, static positions for longer periods of time allowing the connective tissue and bones to receive the attention that they deserve. Think of it as therapeutic stretching, encompassing restorative poses followed by a brief meditation.
