My classes include dynamic sequences, repeated a set number of times, and static postures, held for a set number of breaths.
Dynamic practice – which is always slow, guided by a steady and calm breath, by a calm and regular heart rate – can be considered as preparation for the static practice.
This is both from a physical perspective, as moving in and out of a posture helps us to better understand the potential difficulties of the posture and a mental perspective, as our constantly moving lifestyle does not prepare us to be still.
On the other side, maintaining a posture for a long time, as done ‘traditionally’ for meditative practices, is not easy. The body reveals unexpected rigidity and discomfort, if we are not prepared to modified the posture to accommodate our own particular bodies. Other times, if the posture is comfortable, it is our mind which starts to become restless.
Yoga is a complete discipline which involves both the body and the mind. They are two aspects of the same nature, which have to work together to help us reach a state which goes beyond body and mind. We need to refine both!
I try to facilitate attendance by letting people free to choose the day they come, pick one or two or more of the many classes available from the schedule!
Wednesday and Friday morning classes are gentler, involve many modifications and are targeted at people with back problems or specific needs but everybody is welcome
I am also available for individual classes, kids, kids+parents, classes in villas or holiday homes.
