Hatha Yoga refers to a set of physical exercises (known as asanas or postures), and slow-pace sequences of these asanas, designed to align the body and open energy channels. Yoga asanas help you relax and have a healing effect on the body and mind.
In her mindful hatha yoga classes, Siska progressively teaches asana sequences with a strong focus on alignment to develop strength and flexibility, as well as body awareness which will translate into a healthier daily posture. Moreover, she focuses on mindfulness & breathing with awareness which will help release tension in the body and calm our often restless mind. She also blends in Thai massage pressure techniques and partner exercises to help us deepen our stretches and twists. You will leave class feeling relaxed yet energized.
As of February, Siska will start teaching PromaFlow vinyasa,a contemporary vinyasa yoga practice designed by Joshua Marín-Hepfl to develop strength and structural integrity of the entire body, while allowing for increased flexibility and the development of stamina.
Joshua emphasizes the teaching of sound alignment principles derived from his training in a variety of contemporary and classical dance techniques, as well as from his in-depth studies of anatomy and kinesiology. The class structure allows the body to generate a significant amount of heat in order to safely progress into postures that deeply lengthen and strengthen the body’s musculature.
