On the beginner’s level it includes bodily postures (Asanas), breathing techniques (Pranayama), cleansing practices (Kriyas), deep relaxation (Yoga Nidra) and Meditation.

Chi Ball

A self-massage therapy with stretching, incorporating a blend of Tai Chi, Yoga & Pilates using the Chi Ball, a weightless aromatherapy –scented hand held ball accompanied by chill out music. The moves are used as a tension release technique for the muscles. The class concludes with deep relaxation in Yoga Nidra.

The moves, using your own body weight to roll on the chi ball, massages away restrictions to normal soft-tissue (muscle) movement from the neck, shoulders, through the spine, lower back and legs. By performing Tension Release techniques you can improve flexibility, balance, relieve stress and stiffness, energise and tone the body, makes stretching more efficient, increase performance, build strength and reduce injuries. Tension Release is very relaxing and rejuvenating. Body scanning (before and after) is encouraged to promote awareness of change in both physiology and psychology, from which, through the scanning process, movement is more efficient, uses less energy, consequently makes one stronger, more relaxed, relieves joint stress and enhances physical and functional pleasure- breathing, walking, running, dancing…
