CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Weekly Class Schedule 

Come prepared to breathe, sweat, and LAUGH together. I believe in yoga for ALL BODIES and EVERYBODY ! I design each class as a dynamic event, a celebration that nurtures your personal practice and roots you deep in the practice. You’ll find the beats and vibrations of bhakti musicians and hip-hop artists, a practice inspired by the full moon or the 5 elements, a candlelit evening flow or a sunlit morning wake-up call.

So wherever you are, however you are, whatever day of the week, show up and bring it.

 YOGA CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Ashtanga Vinyasa Primary Series – Mondays  20h00 – 21h30 @Béco Yoga 

This class will deconstruct what the Ashtanga practice is, in particular Primary Series, and introduce students to the basic Ashtanga principles and foundations of yoga asana. This is the classical Primary Series (Yoga Cikitsā) I lead using a unique approach I developed whereby I teach alignment based focused instruction to synchronize the posture (Asana) with breath (Pranayama) and transition (Vinyasa) with precision, confidence and lightness. Open to ANYONE wanting to learn this ancient practice. The primary series is a invigorating sequence that takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete. The postures are strengthening, toning and cleansing for the muscles, joints and internal organs. The focus of the primary series is forward folds and hip opening, which calms the parasympathetic nervous system chilling you WAY out. During the primary led classes, the students are guided in unison through the postures of the sequence and provided with variations of poses that prove challenging. The class includes postures, breathing, pranayama and chanting. You will earn the basis for all yoga postures during this practice. Experienced Beginners – ALL levels welcome.

Vinyasa – Wednesdays 17h00 – 18h00 @ Yoga Sangha 

Vinyasa (or flow) style yoga with an emphasis on creativity and alignment. My classes are inventive and thoughtful sequences of sun salutations, standing & seated postures, back bending and inversions – guided by a steady breath to tone and calm the mind.
Warning: This class is highly addictive and may result in recurrent bouts of laughing and sparking joy.

Vinyasa Krama – Fridays 9:30 – 11am @Béco Yoga 

Vinyasa Krama means “wise progression.” It refers to the ancient and time-tested principles of sequencing which are the foundation for the high art of truly skilled, compelling and powerful practices. Vinyasa Krama means a step by step progression into something, or to a certain goal. A goal, in this case, being a complex or advanced asana (posture). Vinyasa – which is the principle of synchronising movement with the breath and Krama – which literally means steps or stages With Vinyasa Krama you build onto something or grow into something, working methodically from simple to more complex poses. I prepare the body within certain poses to move into the more advanced or complex “peak pose”. We explore, asana, alignment, breath, body, kriya, and meditation in this practice. This is not a FAST paced class, explorations are slow and done mindfully to prepare each student for the next step. That said, this class is not designed for beginners; some previous experience is recommended.

Yoga Tune UP FIXX – Saturdays 8:30 -9:45 am @BécoYoga 

A vigorous 45 minute flow class, this class is a straight up shot of all the good stuff, set to a kick ass, carefully curated soundtrack. Fixx classes revolutionize your practice as I deconstruct the postures to really have you “pay attention” to whats moving.  You will move, breathe, and sweat — community style. This mashup of asana, pranayama, and nada yoga is radically fresh vinyasaless vinyasa krama. Complimented with 45 minutes of Yoga Tune Up® deep tissue massage assists in releasing pain, opening locked muscles, facilitating proper posture and quality sleep. This class is the perfect complement to asana. ALL LEVELS may induce drooling.

Can’t wait to see you on your mats!

Descriptions of Lineages Taught

HATHA YOGA

Hatha Yoga is the most popular and widely practiced form of yoga in the West. This class will introduce students to all of the elements of a balanced Hatha yoga practice, including standing and seated postures, pranayama (control of the breath), meditation and relaxation.

Yoga Tune Up® (YTU) therapy uses self massage and yoga to help eradicate pain and improve posture. YTU heals damaged muscle, increases strength and establishes healthy movement patterns to help you move better in your body.

The Yoga Tune Up Therapy Ball System provides targeted self-massage trigger point therapy by using specially designed high grip rubber balls and focused movement routines that help penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas.

The Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls are approx 6 cm in diameter each and are made of a special rubber that grips at your skin, grabs at multiple layers of muscles, and helps to work out adhesions and tension, providing a deep tissue massage.

Yoga Tune Up® is yoga therapy and will help you to gently regain movement, flexibility and strength.

ASHTANGA VINYASA YOGA 

Ashtanga Yoga is is a highly structured vinyasa-style class. There are five Ashtanga asana series and each student must master every pose of the first series before moving onto the second series. The ultimate purpose of the Ashtanga practice is purification of the body and mind. By moving so quickly and powerfully, you will get a lot of tapas and everything extra, physical and mental, will have to get out the way. This practice has a strong sense of purpose and you are forced to focus and grow. Ashtanga comes with all the benefits of a regular yoga practice–strength, flexibility, stress management, and inner peace. Because the series is so demanding (and in traditional practice you’re expected to practice most days) you will get really strong really fast. There is no part of the body that doesn’t work hard in this practice.

Experience creative and continuous dynamic sequences of classical yoga postures based in Ashtanga teachings that will align your body, breath and mind. Come prepared to turn inward, move, sweat and breathe! Level of effort: Strong

VINYASA KRAMA YOGA

The word vinyasa is composed of two words: vi = order + nyasa = placement; and the word krama means “the uninterrupted sequence of events from beginning to end”; so the entire term means “the ordered placement of the sequence of events.” Usually shortened simply to “vinyasa,” it refers to a flowing sequence of asanas linked by breath and intention.

Contrary to the way we ordinarily think about it, our world is a process, not a collection of objects-every element of every animate being and inanimate thing in the universe is constantly changing. The sequence of changes is always occurring, but ordinarily in us, the sequence is linked by unconsciousness, and we do not perceive it. Most of us see objective reality as more real than subjective reality and spend much of our life energy trying to grasp new objects or stop the gradual decay of everything objectified. When we inject consciousness into the process of change, however, we can become aware of the past and future, because they are experienced simultaneously in the present, and using intention, we can direct the sequence of changes toward the benefit of all beings. This is the state of enlightenment.

In vinyasa, we practice a sequence of asanas as one continuous movement from start to finish. Every movement into or out of a posture is linked to an in-breath or out-breath, and intention-the underlying reason for the practice-drives the movement forward.

YIN YOGA

Yin is a relaxed, contemplative practice of long-held passive stretches targeting the connective tissues of the body. It is the ideal compliment to more muscular forms of yoga. Because of its emphasis on the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine, it is hugely beneficial for releasing tension and improving flexibility and agility in athletes, dancers, as well as office workers who sit for long periods. Level of effort: Unwind;

Workshops & Intensives

I teach a number of workshops throughout the year ranging from 2 hour classes/intensives, pop up yoga practices and entire weekend immersions allowing anyone to go deeper and explore yoga within their relationship to practice. Topics often include a blend of intermediate asana practice, myth inspired teachings, lectures, seasonal wisdom practices, or teacher specific offerings.
