MBCY Classes & Workshops
MBCYin Yoga supports balance for a busy life, melting tension and stress in the body and mind. One can release blocked energy that can cause fatigue, frustration and extreme mental states like anxiety and agitation. MBCYin Yoga allows everyone to understand how to take care of the elastic nature of muscle, hydrate connective tissue and support the organs. By staying in poses for 3-5 minutes, space is created for deep healing and rejuvenation. This class is a beneficial experience for everyone, no matter where you are in your yoga practice! For optimum benefit, 2 classes a week are recommended.
Foundations of Asana is designed to help anyone experience the fundamental principles of Yoga, including breathing practices, Asana postures, anatomy, undistracted focusing, and meditation. Each class will cover a particular aspect of movement (for example forward bending), and examine the core benefits and techniques for execution in an intelligent, personalized manner. A student will learn some basic sun salutations, and practices to do at home so they can deepen their understanding of how and why to practice yoga. Open to all levels.
Yoga therapist nina be will guide this 3 part practice to open the Bodymind, through the principles of Sthira (steadiness) and Sukha (ease).
The first part begins with calming the nervous system out of stress and reactivity, through integrating and grounding yoga.
The second part will be a guided mindful yoga practice of the the 12 essential MBC Yoga postures that harness the ancient techniques of the eight limbs of yoga, to facilitate optimal breathing, body relaxation and stopping the busy mind. The students are invited to participate at their own level of need. The 12 essential postures are Savasana, Bakasana, Tadasana, Uttanasana, Ashva Sanchalanasana, Phalakasana, Adho Mukha Svasana, Sirsasana, Salamba Sarvangasana, Urdhva Dhanurasana (with variations), Eka Pada Kapotasana & Matsyendrasana.
For the third and final (30 minute) part of class, students are invited to find a comfortable way to lay on the ground or sit on the floor. This section includes a Yoga Nidra with singing bowls. Sometimes called a ‘sound bath’, these sessions are supported by the soothing vibrations of ancient metal and crystal singing bowls, to relax different aspects of a person that may be stressed, or blocking access to potential range of motion and comfort.
