Mindful yoga offers the opportunity to bring our mind inwards using the more subtle tools of yoga like Pranayama (breathing exercises), somatic and gentle body movements, meditation, and deep relaxation.
This gentle and thoughtful practice aims to bring us in the present moment, to be aware, to accept and to gently act on our body and our mental resistances and tensions. You will be using gentle awareness to move into your own practice effectively, kindly, and safely.
The themes of a Mindful class vary from focusing on working with the spine, breath, and gravity or grounding, building resilience on using mindful and careful executed poses and movements.
The bodywork is complemented by specific breathwork and pranayama techniques to deal with the immune and the nervous system. Meditation and deep relaxation such as yoga Nidra are used to calm and restore our all being.
Mindful yoga is the perfect practice for the recovering from operation and health conditions, those suffering from stress and anxiety, pregnant women, senior practitioners or to anyone who needs to refuel and find calm in their daily life.
