Yoga

‘See the body as the solution, not as the problem.’   — Ra Uru Hu

Yoga is a form of self awareness.
Yoga differs from other exercise because the movement is performed with an awareness of the body, the breath and the mind. It’s not goal-oriented, you don’t have to be “good” at it: showing up on your mat is already enough.

Learn to let go of any expectation of what you should do, who you should be, how you should look like and simply accept yourself as you are in the present moment. Every move teaches you to love yourself and by letting go of expectations, you also let go of limitations and then you really get to discover what you’re capable of.

THE STYLES I TEACH

Hatha Yoga
Hatha is the oldest and the most traditional form of yoga where poses are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility. Breathing techniques and meditation are also a big part of this practise. Emphasis is on simplicity, repetition and ease of movement. Overall balance and full-body relaxation are the focus as we work on the full body and all its ranges of motions from standing postures to seated and lying down postures. You can expect twists, backbends, forward folds and hip openers from this style of classes. My Hatha classes are suitable for all levels so if you are a beginner, this is probably one of your classes to go to.

Vinyasa Yoga
My absolutely favourite style to practice and to teach is Vinyasa Yoga.
Vinyasa in Sanskrit literally means “to place in a special way”. In a vinyasa based flow class, this means linking movement with breath and intention. When your yoga teachers mentions taking a vinyasa, they are referring specifically to the transition from Chaturanga (or Knees, Chest, Chin) through Upward Facing Dog (or Cobra) back into Downward Facing Dog.
Vinyasa Yoga is all about movement and the flow of energy as you synchronize the body and the mind together through movement and breath.
The main thing about this form of practice is that one vinyasa class will differ from the next. In order to achieve true balance, we must accept the change that happens around us and embrace it. When we move through our poses, we learn to accept the fluctuation of the external and internal worlds and join the body, mind and spirit into one.

 

Power Yoga
Basically Power Yoga is a form of Vinyasa Yoga, but as the name suggests, it’s more focused on building strength and endurance and burning calories. The poses and transitions are challenging and often you move from one pose to the next quickly. Having said that, I also incorporate slower moves and transitions, which doesn’t mean that the practice is easier, it just means you learn to have more control and stability. It’s a good physical workout that doesn’t have to be serious. I prefer to keep things playful.
 

Bodyweight HIIT & Tabata training
As a qualified Personal Trainer and a Fitness Instructor, I also am passionate about HIIT (high intensity interval training) and Tabata (another form of HIIT training) and their importance on not only on the physical realm, but also psychologically. HIIT training has played a major role in my personal life when healing from depression.
My HIIT training is focused on the core stability and aware movement, and a lot of it is influenced by yoga.

 

Yin Yoga
Yin is a slower paced, more meditative version of Yoga. The poses are mainly passive and relaxing and held for a longer period of time (2-5 minutes in general) to target the connective tissues (fascia and ligaments) rather than focusing on the muscles.

Grounding Yin Yoga
GroundingYin®- Yoga Treatment is a restorative combination of Yin Yoga asanas with manipulation of the energy channels in the body. During the practice, the energy channels – called Meridians – and the acupuncture points are manipulated with a gentle massage and pressure made by the fingers and the thumbs. GroundingYin®-Yoga Treatment aims to activate, boost and balance the flow of energy all-around the body. The calming effect of the nervous system is obtained by the combination of the asanas and energy work.
During the practice, the asanas are being kept for 5 – 10 minutes during which the therapist will treat each student individually one at a time. (In the online yoga classes, I will guide you to treat yourself.) The asanas nourish the energy supply of the connective tissues and the joints, boost metabolism and mobility. Relaxing the muscles enables the connective tissues to release and allow all the toxins, therefore, exit the body effectively. Also the metabolism, lymph fluids, blood flow and digestion, for example, are activated.
GroundingYin®- Yoga Treatments’ effects last approximately 24 hours. During that time strong excercise should be avoided in order to allow the body to settle and nurture itself naturally.
 

 

 

Yoga Nidra
Yoga Nidra literally means “yogig sleep”. It is an ancient technique where the practitioner enters into a deep state of conscious relaxation. It is a systematic practice of moving awareness from the external world to the inner world. It is said that one hour of Yoga Nidra can give the same benefit as a four-hour sleep.
Yoga Nidra can be practiced by anyone. It offers incredible benefits for anyone who struggles to let go, who suffer from lack of sleep, trauma, burn-out and/or anxiety. It offers a deeper sense of peace and re-connection more profoundly with yourself. The practice of Yoga NIdra leads us into a state of harmony and restful being. From this state we can then heal, restore and awaken to our true self. When the body enters into this healing state, the toxins are cleared at a cellular level, the mind gets refreshed and baggage is removed from the subconscious.
