Hatha, Vinyasa or Pregnancy Yoga
Which style best matches your needs? Choose from slower, more grounding Hatha practice or dynamic, energising Vinaysa. If you’re an expecing mum, your practice will be planned accordingly, as it needs a whole different approach.
YOGA + MEDITATION / RELAXATION
1h Yoga + 30 min Meditation / Relaxation
Add some meditation or relaxation to the end of your practice or a mix of both. During meditation I guide you through a simple meditating technique, suitable even for beginners. Relaxation, on the other hand, includes breathing and visualisation exercises to further deepen your state of focus and calm.
Yoga means union. It is an ancient practice which was collated into the Yoga Sutra by Indian sage Patanjali an estimated 2,000 years ago. The Sutra is a philosophical guidebook for most of the yoga types practiced today. It outlines 8 limbs of yoga, which are aspects of yogic philosophy that help us focus inwardly until we achieve samadhi (enlightenment).
Today’s yoga practice is mostly focused on the 3rd limb, ASANA, which is a sequence of postures that purify the body and give physical strength and stamina needed for meditation.
Hatha means willful or forceful. Hatha yoga refers to a set of asanas (physical exercises) designed to align skin, muscles, and bones and to open channels of the body – especially the spine – to make energy flow freely. It is a path toward creating balance and uniting masculine and feminine opposites within us. Our bodies are taught how to develop a balance of strength and flexibility and our minds are trained to concentrate on our breath, which helps us become more present and mindful.
Anukalana means integration and it’s an approach towards yoga and meditation based on Tantra Yoga. It’s principles are based on flowing, natural movements in and out of asanas, which tone our bodies harmoniously, without the risk of straining joints and muscles.
80% of a human body is made of water and so also our bodies should move like water naturally, patiently and without force. Anukalana breaks rigid and limiting schemes of modern yoga and it has been proven that its soft approach brings benefits to body, mind and soul much quicker than other types of yoga.
In short, this flowing practice gives you a flexible body and an open mind, which together bring you to a calm and joyful soul.
