YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
YOGA OPEN LEVEL
The Open Level is an invitation to 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.
PRANAYAMA MORNING FLOW –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 a perfect training to learn how to control and connect with our breathing.
VINYASA ACTION –This is where the action is. In this class we will move through a strong vinyasa, building strength and awareness with the combination of breath and body as a dynamic duo. We will prepare the body for the practice to do some cool balancing poses and inverted asanas on Saturday and we will focus on hip opening practice on Sunday. All that accompanied to a nice soundtrack and a lot of joy while moving from asana to asana!
RESTORATIVE YIN –This is the calm-down space in your day. Here we will let the muscles rest, holding passive, static positions for longer periods of time. Think of it as therapeutic stretching and restorative poses followed by a brief meditation.
