Yoga Instruction & Meditation
The body keeps the score of our traumas, fears, repressed emotions. When we are weighed by the happenings of the past and ignorant to the messages our bodies graciously send us, we put a much bigger strain on our bodies to maintain our health. It takes infection and disease that really get us to finally pay attention.
Our thoughts are for us to control. Not the other way around. Our minds help us process the information we receive from our environments along with the clues our bodies graciously send. Yoga showed me the connection of my mind to my body to my spirit.
I am a 200-hour certified yoga teacher. And before that, I was an anxious, tight, anal person living in my future. And I definitely still live into my future a bit. But yoga: its philosophy, breath techniques, asana (pose) practice, presence, and grace show me that I have everything I need. And that my brain can actually be a calm place.
In a standard vinyasa flow, we'll combine breath with movement to bring some fluidity to the body. In an intermediate vinyasa flow, you will anchor your body through your breath so that you can push through a more intense practice. In a basic vinyasa flow, we'll focus on reintroducing you back to your body. It should feel like play. In meditation, we'll leave movement to the side and focus on our minds.
Even now, try saying to yourself "I can establish peace anywhere."
Basic vinyasa flow
If you want a play session with your own body, this is the one. Lots of stretches, lots of release. A slower pace. 1:1.
Group vinyasa flow
Basic, standard, or intermediate. You tell me. 2 people or more.
Standard vinyasa flow
You might sweat a little, but mostly we'll focus on pairing breath to our movement. 1:1.
Think of it as some exercise for your mind. And a nap. 1:1.
Intermediate vinyasa flow
We'll definitely sweat, and you'll definitely focus on your breath. It'll be your anchor, and a strong mind. 1:1.
