Yoga with Strong Alignment Focus
This class is the epitome of a paradox, a true yin/yang experience. Expect to move through a carefully sequenced flow that energises you physically and mentally to allow for optimal relaxation.
What to Expect
This is a 70 minute class that finds the perfect balance between movement and stillness and emphasises deep sensory enquiry. The first half of the class comprises of a combination of movements that prepare the mind and body for optimal stillness. Within the second half expect to be set up in numerous restorative, highly supported poses and to always end with a Vipariti Karani variation and a delicious Savasana. You will require lots of props including: bolsters, pillows, blankets, towels, straps, blocks and maybe some other household goods. * please inform Dale before the class if you have an atypical body, limited range of motion in specific joint, pain or injury.
