The perfect class for those recovering from injuries and for those seeking improving their general wellbeing.
This plyometric circuit will lead you to jump higher and further, to run quicker and faster, to throw an object or ball farther and to lift bigger weights with more ease.
From the Sanskrit “to place in a special way,” vinyasa aligns a deliberate sequence of poses with the breath to achieve a continuous flow.
Inhalation is usually connected to upward, open movements, while exhalation is often tied to downward movements or twists.
In this class, postures are practiced to align, strengthen and promote flexibility in the body breathing techniques and meditation are also integrated.
You can expect an emphasis on simplicity, repetition, and ease of movement.
Full-body relaxation and balance are the goals, as we make a full circuit of the body’s range of motion with standing postures, twists, backbends, forward folds, and hip openers.
