When we think about mobility it can be easy to get it confused or mixed with flexibility; mobility is the ability to take a joint to its full range of motion with control.
This program is divided into five classes to help you work through different parts of the body and work on your mobility. To be able to achieve a good amount of mobility, flexibility is a significant prerequisite.
During these five classes, we will try to take our flexibility into mobility, working hard to control our full range of motion and by doing so, find stability in our joints.
In this Vinyasa Yoga program, we focus on embodying the qualities of the 5 elements. When these qualities are in balance we experience harmony in our life. Although vinyasa yoga is primarily a fire practice, being aware of the qualities of 5 elements and incorporating them into the practice will help us have a more balanced body and mind. Get ready to get strong, flexible, centered and more open in body, mind, and spirit.
Enjoy your practice!

Patanjali was an ancient yoga teacher who lived in India around 2500 years ago.
This program is designed to give a taster and overview of some of the essential teachings contained in the four books (or chapters) of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali; the seminal text on the philosophy and practice of Yoga.
A sutra is a short phrase or teaching. Patanjali did not write the sutras down, they were chanted repeatedly so the students could memorize them.
This program is taught in a traditional approach by chanting the sutras in call and response before an interpretation and translation of the sutra is offered.
In this program we will focus on progressive backbends when we think of backbends we should think of 2 of 2 components, back body strength and front body opening lack of either might often create discomfort in the lower back.

Be patient and find your way up progressively.

In today’s society, there is a lot of talk about “finding balance,” as if it was some elusive, mystical state in a galaxy far far away, that we can only reach through much effort and experimenting.
The truth is that balance is our naturally inherent state. If we could remove all the clutter, we have placed on top of the body’s natural wisdom, and become more adept at listening to what it tells us. We would know when something is throwing us out of that naturally present state of ease. Instead of burying that something under more distractions, we would simply let it go.
Finding physical balance is about learning not to hold on, or grasp, for dear life, but rather trusting yourself enough to expand into the space around you. To live your life fully, with a sense of feeling grounded and rooted, yet infinitely light.
Accessible for everyone. Designed to alleviate suffering from postural problems, neck and back pain, or life on the computer. The course can also be a good place for beginners to start or for anyone wishing to dive into the foundation of their practice.
We use a lot of simple spinal twists and bends. The aim is to work on spinal mobility and to start to correct postural imbalances, allowing free movement and spinal health.
Core strengthening exercises are introduced. Often posture problems manifest due to a weakness in the core. Your core will be strengthened in the appropriate places.
Pranayama is a profound practice. It has a whole host of health benefits and is probably one of the most effective tools there is for holistic health.
