What is holistic Yoga?
A holistic yoga practice does not only include physical yoga practices (Asanas/postures/shapes), It also includes spiritual practices like meditation (Dhyāna), practice of breath control/breathing techniques (Pranayama) and chanting.
This will eventually expand into your lifestyle when practiced on a regular basis.
This class is a mixture of stretching, breathing, flow & relaxation.
On the Gentle & relaxed classes we do a more gentle flow/practice.
Yin Yoga stretches, stresses and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body.
The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility. This blocks the flow of nutrients and energy through the body, causing pain and limiting mobility.
We hold Asanas/postures from 3-5minutes, focusing on the breath & having awareness of the body.
Restorative Yoga is the practice of asanas/postures, each held for longer than in conventional yoga as exercise classes. With support of props such as bolsters, pillows, blankets etc to relax the body & renew.
At its core, restorative yoga is a practice of passive healing, By allowing time for longer asanas (postures or poses) and deeper breathing, restorative yoga helps elicit the relaxation response. This response helps slow breathing, reduce blood pressure, and produce a feeling of calm and increased well-being.
