Yin Yoga

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

Wake Up, Shake Up

 This is an invitation to a sweet and short 30 minute morning practice. 

Get up and shake up 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 junkie

-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 clarity and ease

 

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 shy not us too!?

"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.''

Monthly Offerings

 

Soul Powered  Flow

Happy Om Studio & Online

9-10.30 a.m Next session: 4th October

                    - 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 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 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, 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 all levels (not suitable for complete beginners)

Rest & Restore -Restorative Yoga

Happy Om Studio  7- 8.45 p.m 

Next session: 19th September

            -once a month on Saturday 

Mantra - Movement - Yoga Nidra - effortless call to remember ease, to rest...

In this class we will be stretching and resting the body and mind in a luxurious restorative way. Props are used to support the body so poses can be held longer, allowing the body to open through passive stretching. The postures are usually adapted from supine or seated yoga poses, and their shapes are modified to your individual self with blocks, bolsters, blankets and straps to eliminate unnecessary muscular effort.

We will be holding each restorative yoga pose for a few minutes, even as long as 10 minutes.


It is an active form of relaxation. Specific body parts are alternately relaxed and stimulated, moving the body back to its natural  balanced state. Some poses will have an overall positive effect on the body’s systems, while others target a specific part, such as the chest or spine.
Restorative yoga practice is journey inwards. Soothing, comforting, relaxing and renewing. It is excellent for reducing chronic stress, anxiety and exhaustion.

In this class Mantras will be used. Mantras are like Asanas (physical postures) for the mind. They give plasticity and adaptability to the mind, soften and awaken the heart.  As the asana controls the body and pranayama controls the breath, so mantra controls the mind. They balance and harmonize the energies in daily life.

Join me for this practice and learn how to support Yourself by the nurturing power of rest and healing rhythm of  stillness. 
Practice is followed by deep guided relaxation called Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep).

No previous yoga experience necessary, just come as you are... 

Booking essential  as spaces are limited to 7 people / £12

Please know that you will have to bring your own yoga props to do this class (mat, 2 blankets or towels and cushion  ...)

Welcome Yourself into a gentle, feel-good  slow  and sweet yin practice.

The way we live today, so technically connected and with our schedules so filled, we constantly hang out in the stress response. We are attuned to it. It can slowly become the 'normal' state for us to be all the time concerned with what is next or how can I fill this moment?

What else do I have to or need to do etc etc.  Mind and body can become restless...

This practice is all about creating opportunity to slow down and to savour the experience of being in a posture and in the present moment. Encouraging space and ease through Yin Yoga and extended savasana to open your body and mind whatever is coming, arising and to be in the ~ here and now

Everyone is welcome to this practice as alternatives and modifications are offered / £ 10
