Full Body Stretch (New) (Zoom Class)

Our body accumulates tensions and exhaustion through everyday work and sports, leaving us feeling stressed and tired.  This class will use certain yoga techniques to relax and lengthen those deep tissues and small muscles that are stiff or even aching.  We will focus on those areas that normal stretching cannot reach in order to thoroughly relax the whole body.

If you start to feel less flexible or want to have more muscle endurance, this class will meet your needs.

With proper breathing and mindful training, you will find yourself realigned and relaxed after the class

Yoga – Realign the Body (Zoom Class)

Proper alignment of your of your body will make your muscles, bones and joints cooperate to give you a sense of flexibility and lightness that will help you in your daily life. To work towards this goal we will combine Purna and Iyengar yoga techniques to assist you to develop and maintain good posture, have a healthy back and also tone your body. This class emphasises the alignment and subtle movements of your muscles and bones when performing yoga poses. When doing the yoga poses we aim to connect your mind with your body so that you will become aware of your body’s sensations and its needs and improvement. Yoga props will be used where appropriate and a calming relaxation time at the end of each lesson brings you a quiet mind with reduced stress and worry.

Work Recovery Yoga (Zoom class)

Days after days sitting in front of the computer and in the office makes our back tense and the shoulders slouching.  It is very helpful if we can relax and stretch those stiff muscles that cause problems to our spine and neck. In the class, we will focus on releasing the tension on the back, and build up strong and elastic muscles that support our spine. Good postures for the back and shoulders are crucial; we will work on those muscles that give us strength to open the shoulders and the upper chest.  On our back, we will learn how to draw the scapulas down and elongate the muscles on the lower back in order for us to sit up straight. Apart from muscular training, shifting the focus of the mind to sense the body and face our emotions would be very useful to reduce stress in the brain.  We will spend time on training the mind to scan the body, and learn to listen to the messages sent from our body.

Body & Mind Stretch (Zoom class)

At the beginning of the class, with some easy-to-manage stretches and yoga poses, your body will have an over-all extension and relaxation so stiff and tense muscles can feel released. But physical work alone is not enough.  A flexible and positive mind complements a stretched body, letting both body and mind reach a wholesome state. Through breathing and active visualization, you will find those suppressed and energy draining emotions move away.  Then injecting positive elements to the mind will make you relax, focus and happy. As you finish the class, your body will feel supple and your mind content.
