Yoga Flow

MINDFUL YOGA FLOW CLASS

MINDFUL  YOGA FLOW CLASS

Class  Description

The dynamic nature of the practice takes your attention more into your body and breath. It makes you feel energized and focused. The practice starts with 10 min tension release to ensure any structural limitations that may be present are eliminated so the muscles can do their work properly and improve range of motion, reduce muscle tension, improve blood flow, increase body awareness and aid in injury prevention. Continuing with body-breath integration, Yoga Namaskar, warm up in Vinyasa style, one breath – one movement. After, you will move through a series of traditional poses and sequences: sun salutations, standing poses, seated poses, back bends. 

Benefits

At the physical level, the overall sensation in the body is one of relaxation as it releases neuromuscular tension. It eliminates joint stiffness and builds flexibility, and  generates heat in the body which adds cardiovascular benefits. Mindful Flow cultivates a feeling of acceptance for what is happening at the moment and helps to detach from certain situations, conditions or emotions that persist for a longer time. It builds endurance and increases concentration. Regular practice leads to a greater state of self-awareness, body-awareness, and breath-awareness. It calms and balances the mind; reduces stress and anxiety; works deeply on releasing tension from connective tissues (fascia, tendons, and ligaments). You’ll feel invigorated, flexible and more present in your body. It is a balanced class designed to train your breath, strength, flexibility, and concentration.

A Brief Outline of the Routine

We’ll take time to gently integrate the breath, body and mind allowing about 10-15 minites a state of focused breath-awareness, body awareness, and mind-awareness. Movement begin slowly by integrating Sun Saliutation and other gentle movements. Sun Salutation brings mobility to the highlighted joints and begin to activate the muscles groups we will be focusing on. Next, we’ll enjoy the standing poses which few of them will be Warrior 2 and 1, Triangle Pose,hip openers, twists, bridge and back-bends. Closing the practice with relaxation in Savasana. Monthly we’ll add different postural theme, with the weekly classes breaking down the elements of that theme.
