Yoga

Yoga means union or oneness. It is the union of mind, breath and body.  Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years. 


Yoga is non - competitive. It is not about tying yourself in pretzel like knots.  No experience or flexibility is necessary to practice Yoga. The aim of Yoga is to calm the mind, tune in to the breath and open the heart. It is about listening to your body and recognising where you are today, at this moment. Right now.

Yoga uses asana (exercises) pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation or nidra vidya/ yoga nidra (relaxation) to work towards balancing the body, mind and emotions. Yoga encourages an attitude of acceptance and compassion. 

Embodied Movement holds yoga classes in a peaceful, private studio in Waitoki Village. Waitoki is situated between Dairy flats and Kaukapakapa.  

2020 Term 3

classes


Yin and Tonic 

Sunday 7pm - 8pm 

July 26 - Sept 27th (9 classes term - no class on Aug 9th)
Yin yoga can help to balance a more active yoga practice. It works the connective tissues, bones and ligaments, in particular those of the hips. lower spine and pelvis. Yin yoga poses (asana) are usually held for 3 - 5mins, so although it is suitable for most people it is a mediative, internal focused practice and can be mentally challenging due to the time spent in each pose. Yin and tonic combines yin held poses with gentle somatic movement to lengthen and unwind the body.

Booking for the term secures you a regular place in that particular class.  If you are unable to attend and let me know in advance,  I offer the chance for you to make up that session by attending another class, when there is a space available. 'Make ups' need to be taken within the same term. If you can not make a session please let me know as soon as possible, so the space can be offered to someone needing a 'make up' class. I only offer refunds in exceptional circumstances. Thank you for your understanding. If you would like to attend casually, please text on the day to confirm that there is a space available.

 

Private classes.
These can be a worthwhile investment if you are just starting your yoga practice, if you have a particular focus or health concern or if you are interested in developing your practice further. 

Please contact me if you would like to discuss this option. 

 

 Please contact me to book a space or if you have any further questions - I would love to hear from you.
