Each day of the week, we will have a point of focus.
In each class you will practice: Pranayama, Mindfulness Meditation, Asanas, Pilates exercises & Relaxation.
Vinyasa Flow is a dynamic and flowing Yoga using free body sequencing, in movement or in stasis. Guided by the rhythm of each breath, deep and conscious it becomes one big flowing sequence done with awarness and joy, a moving meditation.
This approach includes many variations of Asanas. The use of successive placement of the body permits to go deeper into the final Asana and allows a precise understanding from a new point of view. Each Yoga session will go deeper in the flow and will be different.
With a practical step by step program, you will practice a wide variety of Asanas, learn to correct your alignement, guided by hands on adjustments from the teacher.
In a week’s time you will feel taller, built up stamina and a stable core strengh. You will learn to release tensions and practice with tranquility and ease.
The classes are designed in such a way that both the beginners and the regular practicioner will benefit from the Yoga cours. Suitable variations are always proposed along the way.
As the days will pass, the rhythm of the class and the number of the Asanas will increase. But each student is invited to keep listening to the energy of the moment, practicing within their own body’s limitations, with no expectations of what could (or could not) be done before.
Opale is very attentive at the correct placement of your body in the posture, to avoid pain and physical problems caused by improper alignement. She considers the practice of Yoga as an essential tool to cure oneself.
