Vinyasa Flow › Improvers › Jean Hall
Opening The Shoulders
The focus of this creatively-sequenced intermediate vinyasa is to release holding and tightness around the shoulders and reconnect the shoulders blades deep into the back. With an open chest, the heart can breathe more fully again. Working with back lengthening and strengthening poses this will help to create support, ease and poise. You will need a blanket (or rolled up yoga mat), 2 foams blocks and a strap.
Go Slow Floor Flow
Beautiful slow sequence, all based on the floor so you can release bodily tension into gravity. Take your time, resist the temptation to speed up and enjoy this rejuvenating flow which is perfect for any time when you need to look after yourself and restore peace and serenity in your life.
Grace and Strength Vinyasa
Wave like fluidity of the spine through variations in the namaska sun salutations feeling grace, strength and power. From a slow, graceful beginning and with plenty of more advanced yoga poses to challenge the intermediate and advanced practitioners, those not ready for the peak poses of handstand, half moon and the splits should hold back to where you feel more comfortable.
Warm Up, Cool down
The perfect 'bookend' class, which is beautiful for either side of the day, a lovely gentle, warm up, or a cool down and release the day. With long holds, deep twists and supported backbends, this is a really nourishing start of your day practice, or class to round off your day. For a weekend treat, we recommend following with Jean's Vinyasa class now your body is open. You will need a block.
Letting Go Vinyasa Flow
This slow flow class is designed to rid the body and mind of tensions which accumulate as a result of life's experiences. These tensions can hold us back, so the class focuses on releasing them so that, in time, we are ready to move on. The class begins slowly and mindfully with supine breathing practices for the first eight minutes. If you want to get moving sooner, but still gain the benefit of tension release, you may want to start with child's pose eight minutes into class. This class is a slow vinyasa flow, focusing on mindfulnes and release.
