Yin Yoga beginners norwich

Yin Yoga is a quiet, meditative practice of longer-held passive poses that enhance and renew the body's vital energy, ease joint-rigidity, immobility, and nourish the body at the whole level.

Yin aids with digestion, muscle repair, organ detoxification and emotional processing. The gentle, supported postures allow the connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, joints, and fascia) to strengthen, and with a consistent practice over 6 weeks, you will notice postural improvement, increased ease of movement and overall balance of mind & body.

This is perfect complementary practice to a more active Yang practice and busy lifestyles we live in. 

Practices will be accompanied with the Pranayama (breath work) to soothe the nervous system and purify the subtle body.

No previous Yoga experience is necessary and complete beginners are welcome. Appropriate for all ages and levels.

"Something amazing happened. I finally managed to just 'observe' my thoughts, feelings and stay in the present moment for a while. Those whose minds always run at top speed know how difficult that can be. I guess sometimes everything just clicks...the timing is right and you meet people that truly represent what they teach and care about their students.  It feels like a fresh start.''

                    - first Sunday of the month

This practice is intended to create a space for you to simply be and explore the connection of the breath, mind , heart and soul through the way of body moves. Spacious but targeted sequencing will give you time to see what is possible in your mind and body right now and move from there...

There will be opportunities to challenge yourself (physically and mentally) and to learn to rest in the inner landscape of your being.

HATHA YOGA is path towards creating balance and uniting opposites. In which our physical bodies will develop a balance of strength and flexibility. It also teaches to balance our effort and surrender in each pose and ideally take that off the mat in to the world. Hatha yoga is a powerful tool for self-transformation. It asks us to bring our attention to our breath, which helps us to still the fluctuations of the mind and be more present in the unfolding of each moment.


TANTRA – the ancient science which uses specific techniques (pranayama, bandha, mudra, kriya & meditation) to expand and liberate the consciousness from its limitations by direct control of Prana (life force; breath, awareness, consciousness…call it as you wish)

Ivana designs her Tantric Hatha classes using the Vinyasa Krama system.
VINYASA KRAMA – A wise progression based on methodology. Vinyasa Krama means a step by step progression into something, or to a specific goal. Knowing what to do, in what order to do it, and over what period of time. Consider Vinyasa Krama as a detailed map or recipe that guides us specifically toward the realisation of our truest self and its empowerment and away from the condition from which we seek to distance ourselves

 

Open to an advanced practitioners  (minimum of 1 year of yoga experience)

better sleep yoga

                 -last Friday of the month

                                           Holistic approach to Yoga and Way of Life

An important Ayurvedic principle, on all levels, is that healing best occurs in a state of stillness. Stillness of the body heals the body. Stillness of the Prana heals the prana. Stillness of the mind heals the mind. But stillness on any level aids in healing on all levels. The state of balance is a state of stillness or calm. The state of stillness allows internal healing energies to come forth and toxins, which are the products of disturbance, to naturally get released…

Such stillness, however, is not a kind of enforced quietude in which the Prana gets suppressed. It is a natural state of balance from which transformative action can arise as needed. It is not a state of sleep but a kind of calm alertness and attention. 

These practices will emphasize stillness as its main goal, not merely flexibility or strength. They will aim at the reduction of the doshas (dosha -that which may become imbalanced) as a means of arriving at such a sattvic (sattva- state of balance and equilibrium) revitalization and

deep nervous system restoration.

                       

We will use our practice as a tool to slow movement down to take us to a state of internal stillness for both body and mind. Slowing down the body, which is our main instrument of expression, slows down the breath and slows down the senses, emotions and mind. Allow it to gradually bring us in touch with the forces of elements, which are also the powers of rejuvenation.

We let the practice help us slow down so that we can reclaim our time and through it reclaim our life and vitality.

All wrapped up with deeply relaxing and soothing guided relaxation - Yoga Nidra.

 This is an invitation to meet once a month  (free of charge) for a sweet and short 30 minute morning practice. 

Get up and shake off the heaviness & stiffness with this short enlivening practice. Our bodies don't need much to feel refreshed and awake, so we can greet our day with a new perspective and generosity of your own attention & presence.

This class if for you if you are:

-lacking motivation to even get up from bed (practice in your PJs! no problem)

-a yoga addict 

-always wanted to do morning yoga but....(too early, too stiff, etc.etc.)

-wanting to spend more time with me (aaaww....I miss You too!)

-love to start your day from a connected space with a smile on your face

 

P.S: Did you know, that shaking is natural way to release tension and return the body to its normal homeostasis? Animals naturally shake to release tension after a life-threatening event (watch the dogs, cats and even birds), so why not us too!?
