Our yoga in Sudbury MA is an uplifting blend of spiritual and physical practices. Kundalini Yoga incorporates movement, dynamic breathing techniques, meditation, and the chanting of mantras, such as Sat Nam, meaning “truth is my identity.” The goal is to build physical vitality and increase consciousness. The physical poses of Kundalini yoga originate from Hatha with different types of breathing, such as the Breath of Fire, alternate nostril breathing, and Dog Breath, to name a few. This yoga is perfect for beginners to advanced yogis and typically lasts for 1 hour.
Restorative yoga, AKA “mindful yoga,” involves the expanded awareness of self and body. Slower movements cultivate space for a deeper experience of the poses and the breath. Awareness of physical sensations, the thoughts or emotions that arise, or sounds in the environment take on a much more profound significance in restorative practice. Simply put, you can notice and feel more of the world through your yoga experience. The overall calming effect on the nervous system sets a deeply relaxing tone for the class. We’ll teach you how to comfort your mind and body down to the cellular level.
A restorative yoga sequence typically involves only five or six poses, supported by props that allow you to relax and rest completely. When you hold restorative poses for 5 minutes or more, you can exert light twists, seated forward folds, and gentle backbends.
Flow yoga (also called Vinyasa Flow yoga) is a term given to a style of yoga where the practitioner moves dynamically from one posture immediately into another. The continuous flow of postures or asanas makes the class or practice become almost like a dance.
Generally, each movement into or out of a posture requires an inhalation or exhalation. Flow yoga unites your breath with your movement in a choreographed sequence. The flowing movements may combine with some longer holds of certain postures.
Reiki Love Yoga is an innovative approach to healing the chakras through Reiki spiritual energy and Yoga.
Blockages of our chakras can happen in multiple ways over time. Negative limiting patterns and beliefs all contribute to the stagnation and dampening of energy. As we grow, learn, and experience life, we create blocks as a method of protection. As often as we grow and learn how to navigate life (at whatever age), our protection methods need to grow as well. Think of it as a software update for your body. This battle between growth and protection is one area that causes blocks to form. Once we identify these blocks, we can open up to your unlimited potential and align with Source and the Universal Flow. These blocks will unravel and clear over time.
Above all, Reiki Love Yoga is a tool to facilitate safe healing.
