Go with the flow- be openminded and have fun
Anusarayoga its a dynamic form of Hathayoga that intergrate both philosophy and biomechanics principles.
Its lighthearted, positive , fun and a lot of hard work.
You will learn how to use your body in a safe way using the five principle of alignments and get strong , flexible and focused .
The philosophy integrates the whole class from start to the end and you will leave the class feeling good enough, empowered , positive and greatful for life , and some sore muscles
Its a more meditative approach with a physical focus much deeper than Yang like practices. Here you focus more on trying to access the deeper tissues such as the connective tissues and fascia and many of the postures focus on areas that encompass joint ( hips , sacrum , spine)
As one ages flexibility in the joints decreases and Yin yoga is a wonderful way to maintain that flexibility, something that for many don’t seem to be too concerned about until they notice its gone.
The principle of Traditional chinese Medicine is also a part of this Yinyoga practice , working on the meridians ( energy channels) that runs thru the body. The chinese philosophy looks from the 5 elements and approach from that .
Each element is associated with its own particular season , emotion and organ system .
The asanas are held for a longer time , trying to relax the muscles as much as possible to reach the fascia and stretch it out .
Its a slow paced style where you draw all your intention inwards , finding stillness.
A quiet peaceful class in a safe tranquil place
IS a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. In this class you hardly move at all, just a few postures pampered with props so that you are as comfortable as possible .
during the long holds of restorative yoga your muscles are allowed to realax deeply. Its a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles , are used to support your body .
Restorative classes are very mellow, making them a good complement to more active practices ( as well as our busy lives) and an excellent antidote to stress. Stillness is a powerful practice
