Ashtanga Flow – Mondays @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
This class is based on a set sequence of a modified ashtanga flow. Modifications to allow any level to participate will be taught as well as giving more advanced practitioners space to practice their ashtanga flow. From time to time different asana from 1st and 2nd series will be inserted into the basic sequence in order to “spice things up” a bit and add challenge! The set sequence allows you to measure your progress, practice the asana principles from the yoga sutras, and subsequently deepen your practice!
This class is a variety of practices to deepen your yoga practice! Raise your vibrations and consciousness using various styles of chanting mantras, pranayama, and meditation (dharana and dhyana) to reach that state of calm (samadhi). Each week will have a theme. Included will be occasional special events such as drum circle, ecstatic dance, and whatever else my co-leaders bring to the mat! Format open for co-leading.
Donation basis to cover cost of room.
Please BYOM (and anything else to help you sit comfortably).
Thai Yoga Bodywork:
Thai Yoga bodywork or Nuad Boran is often called Thai Massage, although it is not a massage at all. It is a 5,000 year old energy-based healing system originally practiced in Ayurvedic medicine. You lie on a futon, fully clothed while the practitioner stretches your body into assisted yoga poses while using wonderfully intense acupressure, reflexology, rocking, and compression techniques to clear energy blockages, release your tension, reduce stagnation and dis-ease.
The multiple benefits of this practice are:
- relief for pain and muscle tension
- greater flexibility and range of motion
- improved alignment of the spine
- a general increase of energy
- increased circulation of blood & lymph
- a balanced nervous system
- deep relaxation
- strengthening and rejuvenating the body, mind, and spirit
- reduced recovery time from sport activities
- dramatic increase of general well-Being
Herbal Compresses that contain herbs for detoxification, inflammation, and general well-being can be added to this session for a wonderfully relaxing, therapeutic session!! [Source: THAI]
