Online Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation Class - English - All Levels

This Yin Yoga & Guided Meditation class is the perfect practice to release anxiety, rebalance the nervous system, invite calmness and stillness into the mind, surrender to what is and go within.

Yin Yoga is a passive, meditative, slow-paced style of Yoga. The postures are mainly floor-based and are typically held for between 2-5 minutes,

Physically, by holding the postures for this length we are able to access the deep connective tissue, targeting the fascia, tendons, and ligaments.

Energetically, Yin Yoga improves the flow of energy (or chi) in the body. This helps to release blockages or stagnation in the meridian lines (energy centers taught in Chinese Medicine).

Because the postures are held for a long period of time, breath awareness and mindfulness are large parts of Yin Yoga. As you hold the postures I will guide you through meditation, mindfulness and breathwork practices.

About Me

I am a certified and experienced Yoga & Mindfulness instructor with four years of teaching experience. I teach Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin Yoga, along with meditation, breathwork and mindfulness techniques.

I have been practising yoga since 2014 and completed my 200hr Yoga Alliance Teaching Training in early 2018. Since then, I have taught yoga and meditation in Thailand, Cambodia, the UK. I now teach online to students worldwide, including to hundreds of people through the popular app Insight Timer.

I am originally from the UK but currently residing in Thailand. I am passionate about sharing my expertise and experience with yoga and mindfulness to inspire and guide others to live more mindfully, becoming happier, healthier and calmer.

Aside from my initial Hatha/Vinyasa teacher training, I have completed teacher training courses in Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and Thai Yoga Massage. I have also attended countless workshops and spent time meditating with monks here in Thailand.

Sharing the tools and techniques I have learned over the last eight years, I strive to facilitate a personal transformation in each individual that works with me.

Kenza
Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Meditation, Mantra, Pranayama
A full course of one hour (60 min) with the possibility of reserving for a longer duration (90 min). My classes are mainly oriented on the connection with the breath, the anchoring and the deep muscular work. The lessons are adapted according to the level of the students, and I offer several variations: Hatha Yoga: general category which encompasses most of the styles practiced. "Hatha" means "perseverance", "effort" or even "determination". To be determined to achieve liberation within a certain period. This discipline is in relation with "prana", the vital force and its two components: masculine energies, considered as solar and active + feminine energies considered as lunar and passive. From there was born another interpretation according to which "Ha" & "Tha" would mean the sun and the moon united and balanced through the practice of Hatha yoga. The soul being the sun, constant and stable in its brilliance and luminosity, the spirit being the moon, constantly fluctuating and changing like the phases of the moon. The basic principle of Hatha yoga being to unite and harmonize the opposing energies of the body; the mind and its reactions. We unite the body and the spirit to unite the spirit with the universe. A Hatha yoga class consists of physical postures and breathing exercises. The postures are performed slower and last for a few breaths (30 seconds to a few minutes) to promote anchorage and stability. A real in-depth muscular work. Vinyasa Yoga: the Sanskrit term Vinyasa is derived from 2 roots "Nyasa" which means "to place" and "Vi" which can be translated as "in a specific way". Each movement is linked to rhythm and consciously placed to create a dynamic flow. It is a more rhythmic and powerful yoga which allows to link the postures in a harmonious way with transitions commonly called "vinyasa" and used in particular during the sun salutations. Here we retain the postures in a shorter time than during a Hatha yoga session, but we are still aware of our movements and our alignment. Gentle yoga: for people looking for relaxation, a stretching work inspired by Yin Yoga to release muscle tension and settle into letting go. I invite you to discover Yoga with Hope Arts Studio or to deepen your knowledge if you are already practicing. Meditation: work on the chakras; the 7 main energy centers of the body, often represented by 7 specific colors. During this session, we will focus on a particular chakra to balance and / or unblock it through breathing techniques and guided meditation. We will also explore mindfulness meditation, bringing the moment to the present moment, reconnecting to your “inner self” consciously and without judgment, examining thoughts and emotions. This practice is beneficial for relieving tension and everyday stress. Possibility of private or semi-private lessons in the studio, at home or online. I teach in French and English.

Dance & Healing | The Transcendental Embodiment - Behind & Beyond
Are you seeking life guidance through art, movement, and dance for emotional, psychological, and physical well-being? Welcome to the Transcendental Embodiment. I am here to support and guide you in your own process of discovering your inner healing power through: - chakras alignment, guided meditation, breathing exercises - self-expression & subjective experience through dance - expanding your heart space, emotional awareness, and healing in movement and dance - release of stress, judgment, and trapped emotions - grounding, self-care, resilience - and more... The sessions are tailored to the specific needs and capabilities of each individual. *Dance can be a practice of introspection, transformation, and transcendence of one’s subjective experiences into a worldwide journey." - Tiffany Mc Swaker * As a professional dancer, teacher, and performance maker I am introspectively processing each working day in consciousness, listening to my upcoming emotions, triggers, or anxiety when it comes to be physically and mentally performative in a team, or as a freelance artist. Instead of suppressing these emotions and creating energetical and mental blockages (that can end up into somatic pains or burn-out): we should pay more attention to these inner warning messages and strengthen our emotional intelligence to be able to cope with the infinitesimal external stimulus and daily-stress of our very fast lives. It can be challenging to sense with clarity what is the origin of some feelings of frustration, unsatisfaction, discomfort, or grief, and it can be intimidating or discouraging to walk alone on that path. This class helps you to commit to your better-being, presence to oneself countering wellness procrastination. * What do you need to feel lighter, brighter, or happier in your everyday life? * * What is your self-achievement potentiality? * - For who? : For anyone who enjoys movement and dance, and desires a better connection and understanding with their moving bodies. / ​One-to-one or group sessions. - ​Where? : Online via SKYPE or at the student's location. Values: Integrity, Transparency, Respect, Cooperation * About TTE : The Transcendental Embodiment (TTE) is the result of three years of research and development. Merging from a movement philosophy research entitled Behind & Beyond, to its phenomenological understanding. The metaphysical unity of the tangible and intangibles bodies expounds the undeniable relationships between those in the physical realm. The tangible body (the material vehicle), the intangibles bodies (psychological, emotional, energetical, and spiritual). As a dance healing practice, guiding the practitioner to conscious corporeality, and subjective emotional understanding, this methodology can also be a useful tool to improve artistry and technical skills on a deeper level, widening mindful creativity, awareness, empathy, and sensitivity. (TTE) movement and dance methodology combines a meditative approach in stillness and through movement, awakening the mind, spreading the awareness into different body parts; put a specific emphasis on improvisation skills, and musicality, following energy impulses and intuitive movement, increasing the flow of energy. Inviting the practitioners to practice resilience, non-self definition, non-judgment, self-care and self-love, integrity, and acceptance to overcome technical, physical, and mental limits holding the practitioner from his self-achievement potentiality. This approach builds itself crescendo on subjective movement reflexivity and introspective journey through the following process: ​ * The four steps: Being | Investigation | Exploration | Dedication Unconscious - Subconscious - Conscious - Transcendental Consciousness Feel free to contact me for any inquiries.

Subramanian
Traditional hatha yoga online classes for everyday life
Fitness is not an extra-curricular activity; it is a part and parcel of our daily life. My approach to stay fit is combining a lifestyle that is founded on where we live and when, what and how we eat. When you choose a lifestyle that embraces your place of living, and eat what is grown and produced locally (and seasonal), you don’t need to motivate yourself to stay fit. Motivation is something that doesn’t stay long and it is external. So, when you integrate the lifestyle that embraces your needs for the day, you become fit and healthy naturally, and for a longer term. So, what you learn will be a combination of hatha yoga (asanas), posture corrections, eating, daily activities, and some fun.

Aylin
Yin Yoga Class with meditation and breathing practice
I am a certified yin yoga teacher and I offer 1 hour 30 minutes yin yoga experience. WHAT IS YIN YOGA Yin Yoga is a slow paced and passive style of yoga practice where postures are practiced on the floor in static way for an extended period of time ranging from two to five minutes. When combines with internal awareness yin yoga also becomes a highly meditative tool to cultivate inner silence, enhance awareness and explore the deeper realm of our consciousness. PROGRAM Class is very appropriate for beginner and advanced practitioners. In 1.30 hour class we will start with 15 minutes guided meditation then we will continue 60 minutes with yin yoga poses. These poses mainly work with lower of the body – the hips, pelvis, inner thighs, lower spine and focus on facia. The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies. We are opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely. We will close our practice with breathing exercise such as Nadi Shodhana, Ocean Breath. Breathing exercises can have an effect on your state of mind, improve cognitive function and reduce symptoms of anxiety. The last 15 minutes we can have tea, my hand made glutem free sweet and talk about yoga, life, meditation. WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING • Very big smile and positive energy • Yoga mat- If you don’t have no worries I have enough • Comfortable clothes

Baru
Yoga for everyone in Barcelona ~ Individual or grupal
Dynamic yoga flows adapted to all ages and necessities. From Power-Yoga, to Yin Yoga, Hatha Vinyasa flows, Breath-work and Pranayama, always honoring ourselves! “As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.” Destroy the idea that you have to be perfect at things to enjoy them. Yoga, art, music, writing, dancing, cooking. These are all amazing hobbies that serve our soul and natural human state. We were meant to express ourselves. So sing off key, dance like no one’s watching, give yoga a chance and be ok being a “beginner”, draw badly, burn a few recipes. Because life is meant to be ENJOYED. I’m done chasing perfection, these days it’s all about progress and letting go of all the self-limiting beliefs and ways of living that no longer serve me. From the very beginning, yoga inspired me to be my best version, to evolve and love myself and everyone around as I never did before. Yoga taught me to show up authentically without the need to belong, to choose self-expression over self-denial and embrace who I truly am instead of what others want me to be, life became truly magical, fulfilling, fun and most of all REAL. On our classes I will: ~ Instruct you on how to safely get into poses and how to breathe correctly, teaching also some pranayama techniques. ~ Design yoga class sequences, including vinyasa and flow formats for beginner or advanced students, adapting different flows to your necessity. ~ Demonstrate postures to you and support you also in finding the right poses, helping you to avoid any injuries. ~ Guide you develop your body and mind awareness, as well as physical strength. ~ Show you how to practice yoga on your mat and also outside it. ** I am always striving for progress, not perfection!

Megan
Guided mindfulness and stress reduction (for children, adolescents and adults- in groups or individual)
My name is Megan, I am a mindfulness teacher for children, adolescents, and adults, in the Eline Snel method. The goal is to be present with our bodies, thoughts, needs and emotions and to learn how we can cope effectively with stress. We can also work on specific desired goals. By proposing mindfulness sessions through Skype I hope to be able to reach out to as many people as possible, and to support people who might find these times particularly stressful. I have many years of experience teaching mindfulness and stress-reduction techniques to children and adults in the humanitarian field. I am very patient and will adapt to the needs and expectations of each person. Previous knowledge of the practice is not necessary, this is just about taking some time for yourself.
