+ Moon Day Practice: Release and Reset

 

Beginners & Intermediate level Yoga

We will open our practice with a mindfulness meditation with awareness on the breath to align body, mind and heart together as a preparation for our asana practice. 

After chanting a peace mantra together Aura will guide the group through Sun Salutations and the Standing Postures of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.Every week we will explore a different group of postures, either forward bending, twisting, back bending, inversions, or a mix of all. Aura will pay close attention to the alignment of the postures.

Modifications for different levels of students will be given.

Led ashtanga for all levels

After chanting the opening mantra together, Kimberly will be guiding you through the Sun Salutations and the Fundamental Postures of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Every week Kim will explore a different group of postures, either from the Primary Series, from the Second Series, or a mix of both.
 
Kim will pay close attention to the alignment of the postures. Modifications and preparations for different levels of students will be given.

Mysore Ashtanga

After chanting the opening mantra together, Aura will guide you through the Sun Salutations and the Standing Sequence. After standing postures, each practitioner continues with Mysore style self practice, receiving individual guidance and support from Aura.

Ashtanga Led Full Primary Series

Aura will be guiding you through the full Primary Series. Variations will be offered for those newer to Ashtanga. If you are not used to practice full Primary, you are welcome to stop where ever you need to and do finishing postures. If you need to do a shorter practice, you can always take finishing postures whenever you need.

Meditation + Pranayama

In the first 30 minutes of this class Aura will guide a mindful meditation through awareness on the breath followed with bandhas, mudras and kriyas.
These yogic techniques are the most important of all practices since they support our process of elimination and are the very foundation of yogic asana, pranayama and meditation.
We will follow with basic pranayama techniques, and a sequence will be provided to each student to practice everyday. 

Introduction to Second Series

Aura will guide the group through modified sun salutations and standing postures, while adding modifications to help create more accessibility during back bending poses to follow.
Back bending is not only beneficial but absolutely necessary for every yoga practitioner. Back bending makes pranayama practice easier as it increases lung capacity, and is the perfect counter balance of the constant forward bending that our habitual patterns and Primary Series require. 

Philosophy and Sangha Connection

IMPORTANT NOTE: “Philosophy and Sangha Connection” is offered ONLY once a month as part of our virtual program but is open as well to anyone who is in search of a little philosophical inspiration and community support.

In Buddhism “sangha” is a community created by people who practice together, people that sees and values the importance of concentration on inner processes in order to bring about and maintain awareness in our acts and behaviors. The essence of a sangha is awareness, understanding, acceptance, harmony and love.

We will open our session with a shanti mantra together, Aura will follow with a talk rooted in different aspects of yogic philosophy, and we will take time at the end of the session for sangha connection, knowing each other and sharing our yogic experiences. This will be as well a great opportunity to ask Aura questions about your practice, or inquire about specific topics of your interest. 

Moon Days Class: Release and Reset

IMPORTANT NOTE: This Class replace any virtual class that falls on a Moon Day.

We will move through a slow-paced detoxifying and cleansing practice that targets to open and stretch every part of your body to help release stress and tension and Reset to a feeling much more open and relaxed. This class is appropriate for beginning students or regular practitioners looking for some movement and some rest.
