Yoga is a journey of self-discovery and connection to the beauty, radiance and wisdom of what lies within.
This Hatha style yoga practice offers you space to breathe (pranayama practices), move (asana) and meditate (dhyana). This mindful practice emphasizes self care, and students are guided to listen and respond to the wisdom of their own body and wellbeing.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
BREATHE - The breath offers many benefits: it enhances our strength and willpower; it helps calm physical and mental tension; it brings us into a more aware and present space; it guides the energetic effects of the poses; and more. Pranayama techniques and breath awareness will be present in each class.
MOVE - This is a full body practice offering some feel good gentle movements, a touch of strength and balance, full body openers and softening postures.
MEDITATE - We’ll continue the journey inwards with mindful meditation practices and techniques.
MORE: Other yoga practices may be explored: mantras, mudras, pranic energy, mindfulness and more.
Who is this practice for?

THURSDAYS @ 6-6:45 PM
Guided by Christina Echevarria
Designed to help you to optimize mind, body, and spirit to experience a sense of ease, well-being and vitality.
Christina will guide you through a two-part Pranayama Breathwork Meditation taught by her teacher, David Elliott.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
There are many variations to Pranayama yoga breathing, but the essential technique you will experience is…
Laying down on your back, and breathing deeply through your mouth for a while. (There are two stages in the inhale — once into the stomach and once more into the chest before you exhale through the mouth.)
The way it works…it gets the energy moving through your body and helps your mind settle down. It stimulates the energy meridians in your body, and helps you release stagnant energy in different parts of your energy field. Most people feel the effects of the breathing viscerally in their body and energy within minutes.
One benefit of an ‘active meditation’ practice is it really helps you let go of the mental activity since you have something to focus on.
