ENERGIZING SOFT VINYASA – Focus with inspiration to ground, uplift and resonate body, mind and breath. This flow class is suitable for everyone – including those 55 years and up.
SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement) is Prajna Yoga’s therapeutic, “yin” style practice. – SATYA will no doubt add depth and somatic sophistication to your practice… and it is so healing. Helen uses the somatic movements usually at the beginning of class before moving into Vinyasa. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding, and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body. Ideal for aging populations, SATYA is a simple yet highly effective system to help safely mobilize and repair the connective tissues.
RESTORATIVE – A perfect opportunity to experience a deep state of relaxation where the body can release and heal. Experience prop supported postures with long holds that reduce stress and bring flexibility and balance to the mind and body. Simply let go and surrender. Give your body the natural gift of rejuvenation. Blocks, blankets, bolsters, and straps are optional, and you’ll receive personal assistance for set-up in restorative postures. This class inspires all levels and adults.
Helen is a Waterville Valley resident and specializes in Therapeutic Thai Yoga Bodywork but do teach Vinyasa flow and prop-based restorative classes.
Any physical exercise done with breath awareness becomes yoga; anything done without the breath is just a physical practice.
