BUILD STRENGTH BOTH PHYSICALLY AND MENTALLY. This is a beautiful dance between breath and movement that invigorates your whole being. In Ashtanga Yoga set series of postures (asanas) are woven together using flowing movements to create one sequence. Each connecting move is synchronised with the breath (ujjayi pranayama). Ashtanga yoga is a challenging physical practice, increasing strength, flexibility, endurance, co- ordination and stamina. The Ashtanga Yoga Vinyasa system (breathing with movement) are sequences of postures that vary in difficulty and benefit. As there is a set sequence each pose is mastered before moving forward to the next pose. The flow between each posture is an integral part of the practice. For each movement there is one breath (ujjayi paranyama).
In this four week course we will focus on the energy centres known as Chakras. Meditation is not easy at all. The sitting. The stillness. It takes time, preparation and practice to get to a place of comfort with it. I AM PEACE is a method presented by Adriana Cortazzo that adapts traditional yogic practices presented in a creative and explorative approach. If you need to quieten your mind and are clueless to how you're going to convince your body to co-operate, then give this course a go. The only guarantee here is that you will laugh at lot!
