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.
Whether you are a seasoned athlete, recovering from an injury or surgery, or have recently decided it's time to bump the self-care routine up a notch, this open level class will be highly supportive.
