Styles of Yoga I teach


01

 

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga is exactly what is sounds like — restorative. Its sole purpose is to allow your body and mind time to rest and restore. In this practice, we'll create time and space to allow the physical body to align with the mental and emotional body. Through stillness and gentle movement for longer periods of time, the body is able to "recoup". In a 75-90 minute class poses are typically held for 8-20 minutes each. A single Restorative Yoga class includes on average 5-6 poses.

 

02

 

Vinyasa Flow

When translated literally from Sanskrit, Vi means “to place” and nyasa means “in a special or sacred way”. A Vinyasa Flow class is coordinating movement to breath from one pose to the next. In a Vinyasa Flow class, we'll start slow with sun salutations, work towards a peek pose through a variety of postures, and end with a grounding seated or lying down meditation. This dynamic practice can be as sweaty or as slow as you desire when you come to your mat that day.

Meditation

Meditation can feel intimidating. My intention is to show you how easily you can incorporate it into your life, in as little as a few minutes. After all, it is coined a practice for a reason. You may be able to easily sit for 5 minutes or for 55 minutes. Regardless of the time you have, one of the most important lessons I have learned and wish to share about this practice, is that the ability to be still, varies from day to day, moment to moment. We sometimes place pressure on ourselves to make Meditation a mandatory part of our day. When truthfully, Meditation is simply honouring and coming back to your breath in any given moment. Our minds are never completely still. The coming back is the practice. Let the thoughts come and go and honour breath.
