In this class, postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body. Breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated. Emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement. Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals.
In this class we use props backmitra, blocks, bolsters, and blankets and breathing exercises to mindfully bring your body to healthy movement and posture. The gravity and weight of your body is replaced by the lightness of the posture; as you breath, relax and move deeper into the asana and embrace a balanced state of stillness and movement.
The class balance between relaxation and stability.
