Iyengar Vinyasa Flow Sequences
Thursday Evenings 5.30pm-6.30
Introducing in Term 3 Iyengar Vinyasa Flow practice.
The benefits of practicing in this way;
1. Increase your circulation.
This practice is a yoga cardiovascular workout, warming up the whole body. Improving blood circulation to support the immune system.
2. Lengthen and tone your muscles.
Sun Salutations include forward bends to lengthen the hamstrings, and backbends to open the chest. Lubricating your joints, so your body maintains it's full range of motion. Keeps the spine flexible which is important to our overall wellbeing. ‘We are as young as our spine is supple'!
3. Meditation in Action.
The Sun Salutation is a series of asanas woven together with the breath. The breath provides a bridge between the body and the mind, allowing the body to be active and mind to be a passive observer. B.K.S Iyengar refer to this as 'Meditation in Action’.
4. Mood booster.
If you are fatigued and in a bit of a funk, taking some vigorous exercise will change your brain chemistry rapidly and leave you feeling relaxed and at peace. The mere act of lifting the chest in Urdhva Mukha Svanasna (Up-Dog pose) can elevate the emotions.
