WHAT I TEACH
I teach One-to-one, Open class (non-beginners) as well as Beginner sessions (4 stages, each stage is taught however many times is required by the individual, you are recommended to go at your own pace).
An Open Class is a traditional, slow paced, meditative class that helps encourage proper breathing, flexibility, strength and vitality in the body while calming the mind. Because Yoga is a spiritual system with a physical component, this non-competitive approach helps the practitioner gain much more than just a healthy body.
Structure of Open class (non-beginners):
A typical open level class includes Relaxation, Invocation Prayer, Pranayama (breathing exercises), warm-ups including Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar), Single & Double leg raises, 12 Basic asanas (postures), Final deep relaxation and Final Prayers. The focus is on mastering the basic asanas from which variations are then added to further deepen the practice. The asanas follow an exact order that allows for the systematic movement of every major part of the body in a balanced way that enhances prana or life force energy, keeping the mind quiet and without the need to think beyond each individual pose.
Structure of Beginners Class # 1:
Relaxation, Invocation Prayer, Talk on Yoga and 5 points of Yoga, Eye Exercises, Neck Exercises and Shoulder Exercises, Abdominal Breathing, Single and Double leg raises, Two Asana’s: Shoulder-stand and Fish, Final Relaxation, Final Prayer, Talk on 1st point of Yoga (Proper Exercise).
The next 10 asana's, breathing exercises and Sun Salutations (Warm-up exercises, consisting of 12 movements) are slowly introduced in the next beginner classes.
Suitable for: Children – age 7 upwards; Pregnant women and the Elderly (variations of the asana's making it gentle).
