What to expect
The Skill of Chill.
Be ready for a deep soulful slow flow yoga class and an incredible meditation experience that is nothing short of paradigm shifting. We want to share the tools and techniques of how to be more present and feel the profound connection to our bodies, our community and nature. Expect a short lecture on yoga, your nervous system and the adrenals. Discover how understanding the adrenals and the nervous system can serve to balance out our Chakra system. Bring calm, clarity and light into your life and open up our deepest consciousness.
Open Heart, Open Hips.
It’s time to get super deep with our hip openers. This means we will take some time to break down the basics of hip function, the muscles we are targeting and the potential risk and alignment strategies so we can choose the appropriate level without harming ourselves.
Expect to go deep using Blissology Alignment principles, opening up to our energy body and the wisdom of our deepest heart. As always, the focus is ultimately on opening up to love-the ultimate renewable resource.
Superflow: the Fluid Body.
Flow is the essence of our being-it involves being present to every breath that we take and to our collective universal breath. In alignment-based flow yoga we move in a linear synchronicity, patterning our bodies to the alignment of yoga asanas. While this moving in a linear fashion is incredible way of learning and discipline, we tend to focus on too much, while ignoring our innate developmental movement patterns, the spiralling, circular forms of movement that are essential to our innate selves that we call “superflow.”
Drawing inspiration from yoga, ancient martial arts, dance, surfing, ski and snowboard maneuvers, Superflow is an ecstatic form of movement. Set to music, it starts off slowly, allowing ourselves to feel centered and open in our bodies. Gradually we build up in intensity, spiralling back in touch with the joy of movement.
Superflow is not a replacement of yoga as we know it, but a powerful complement to the regular yoga practice, offering a little more exuberance and a little less introverted energy. It complements static movements with rhythmic flow. You will sweat, release and feel the life force pulsing through you.
