Vinyasa Flow Yoga › Vanessa Michielon
Vinyasa flow is dynamic flowing style of yoga. It's really popular and we love it because it covers a real breadth of teachers and teaching styles from a fast 'power' flow to an alignment based or more meditative flow. Vinyasa flow is when we harmonize breath and movement to give strength, grace and freedom.
Vinyasa Flow: Find Strength and Space
A comprehensive vinyasa flow yoga class with a focus on the space in-between positions and movements. Can you practice giving yourself and your body more space? See if you can become aware of finding space in between thoughts and everything that usually captures our attention. By allowing ourselves to slow down, we can make space for more to arise to our consciousness. The session begins and closes with a breathing practice and offers plenty of vinyasa yoga poses with opportunities and variations to open hips and release tension from hamstrings.
Stress Relief: Come Home To Your Body
In this yoga for stress relief session we focus on connecting to our centre, and creating a safe sense of expansion out into the world and contraction back to ourselves. We will explore the somatic pattern of navel radiation by gently waking up our core, and noticing how this supports our limbs and sense of inner connection. You will need a yoga strap or belt.
Stress Relief: Building Resilience
Learning how to quieten your mind and breath when you are practicing challenging positions can help you train your resilience and improve your relationship with stress. In this flow you will learn how to use your breath as a resource for grounding, and cultivate inner fortitude with repetitions of yoga poses that will safely lift your heart rate up, alternated with moments of rest.
Vinyasa Flow: Move With Awareness
An intermediate vinyasa flow which invites us to stay present and to notice without judgement any distractions we might encounter when moving on our mat, including the fear of failing or our need to achieve specific yoga pose goals. This yoga class is a comprehensive sequence which starts with a meditation and breath work practice, followed by a shoulder and chest opening warm up, then balances and twists, including fallen angel pose, to unlock your spine. You may need a block.
Vinyasa Flow: Release the Neck and Shoulders
This vinyasa flow yoga class invites us to let go of holding onto patterns that might create tightness in our chest. A great class for those who carry tension in the neck and shoulders, particularly from computer use; it will encourage the opening of the shoulders and the front of the body. Start with lovely chest, shoulder and neck releasing warm ups, the vinyasa flow then goes to explore different backbends creating length in the spine and challenging ourselves to approach our practice with an open and courageous mind.
Grounding Stress Relief Flow
A mindfully paced and grounding vinyasa yoga class. This class is perfect for when you feel a bit overwhelmed and restless, and you need to move in a grounded and connected way. The sequence offers you tools to recover a sense of rootedness and safety in your body. Class begins with a calming seated breathing practice and progresses through a slow standing flow that will reinforce your connection with the Earth, and finishes with a guided relaxation.
