Prayana - A class to stretch and strengthen your body through movements

Body is the biggest asset one possess; A healthy body helps to have healthy mind. Join me for the stretching & strengthening class, aligning with the body & mind in a safe environment.
It is important to keep our muscles and tissues strong and fit for the betterment of our body and health. It is not just about the external aspect of the body but also looking into the internal parts of the body. These sessions would encourage you to find the balance within yourself and your body, through correct alignment, positioning and the engagement of right muscles along with weight shifts concentrating on the different parts of the body. With the flow of practice, we would be looking into understanding the body, its strengths and weaknesses and how to strengthen and stretch our body in a safer manner with our flow of breath increasing the mobility and agility. The practice would be a combination of yoga asana practice, animal flow of movements, cardios and breath work.
Classes would be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Kathak is one of the Indian classical dance forms from North India. It is the only dance form that portrays both Hinduism and Islamic culture. I will be teaching from the basics of the art form along with the theory aspects from Natyshastra and Abhinaya Darpana. Understanding why we are doing each step is very important when we learn something new. And when someone asks, one should be able to explain what they are learning and why it is done in that particular manner. I would also be teaching them the incorporation of theoretical aspects to the practicals, teaching different bedas and hand gestures(mudras), and their usages as they progress in order to understand what they are doing practically. All of these notes would be written by the students in their book for their future reference and self-practice. The class becomes intricate and complicated as they move forward. In every class they would be learning something new no matter whether it is big or small. Some days they might have homework or creative exercises so that it helps them to choreograph and also bring their imaginations through movements. I would be starting with the basic posture and the basic footwork called as tatkar as it is the basic and crucial one for this art form. Then it progresses to Tihai's and then to even with the usage of Ang ie, The hands and eyes and the sway of the body. Tatkar (Footwork) Chakkars(Pirouettes) Tihai’s (Rhythmical pattern repeated thrice as an ending) Usage of Ang( Inclusion of hand movements to Tatkar) Shloka (Angikam bhuvanam) Class Flow Namaskar Warm-ups Tatkar (Different speeds; Starting with the slow speed till the higher speed that they can do) Tatkar with Ang( In different speeds with the eye and hand movements in taught) Chakkars

Gaurav
Yoga & Meditation with an International Certified Teacher!
Yoga is a lifestyle!! All you need to dedicate some time and rest you leave things to me. You will feel a positive change with the process. You will love this journey :) Yoga is much for than what we see on social media ;) Yoga was first mentioned in the old sacred Rig Ved scripture. Yoga means Yuj/Yoke/unite-union-joining (with the divine intelligence of the universe). Yoga sutra philosophy says - Yoga is Concentration. It's a holistic science with yoga philosophy. It includes the entire person within its purview: the body, mind, intellect, and consciousness. We are going to focus on your, customized approach!! Especially for you!! you will have me all attention. Bring back to breathe, relax, revive and do some wonderful asanas, Kriya, Mudra, Pranayama and many more. You will rejuvenate after the practice. Tips- Take a deep breath and don't think much. Just book a session and experience the journey. I teach internationally and to corporate companies, yoga teachers and private clients. If you want to host significant yoga events for your community or office. Please reach out for collaboration. It's been more than 10 years of my fitness journey, health and mentorships. I have hosted 1500 + participants but more numbers do not matter. Besides I am trained in Hatha, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Himalayan & Iyengar but most important I understand you and work accordingly. So, let's practice now!!

Ritika
Yoga Teacher- Asana, Pranayama and Meditation for beginners.
I am a certified 200-hour Yoga alliance teacher from world capital of yoga - Rishikesh. I am passionate about health and I am keen to share my advanced knowledge in this area with you. Yoga is a powerful tool to connect with oneself and one's environment. As a yoga practitioner, you'll do asanas, pranayama and meditation. I've designed this course as a practical guide to Yoga that's specifically made for beginners. You'll learn how to do Surya namaskar A & Surya namaskar B, preform various asanas, pranayama techniques and meditation to not only improve your posture and flexibility, but to explore the spiritual dimension of life. I am patient and caring. All the practices will be adapted to individual's capacity and comfort.

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.

Julia
Experienced yoga teacher: flow yoga, vinyasa, yoga wheel, ashtanga, MFR (foam rollers)
7 years in warrior pose, building a bridge between body and mind! I know how to fall in love with yoga and gain lots of benefits from yoga practice and would be happy to share with YOU ! My main focus is to make students happy, confident, and relaxed! Adapting yoga classes to all abilities from beginners to advanced practitioners. Guiding students on how to connect breath and movement during physical and mental practice. I'm always focusing on each’s needs, intentions, physical abilities, and expectations. I work with different health issues and adjust exercises individually. I love combinations of gentle yoga flows with power asanas and peak poses to develop flexibility, strength, and mental clarity. During the class, we will use our body to go deeper into the mind. Namaste!

Sara
Private Vinyasa Yoga personalized to your pace and needs
I’m a self-employed yoga teacher freshly installed in London. I teach vinyasa yoga as slow or fast paced as you need, with a strong focus on intertwining the rich yoga philosophy with the physical practice. I trained as a Vinyasa Yoga Teacher in San Francisco at Laughing Lotus (now renamed Lotusland Yoga) with Jasmine Tarkeshi and Brima Jah. This teacher training was life changing for me, and as I soaked in Jasmine & Brima’s knowledge, kindness and values, I strengthened my own yoga practice and developed my own way of sharing yoga with others. My approach to teaching can be summarized in three major commitments: - honouring yoga’s roots: I use both sanskrit and english names for asanas, I’m passionate about yoga mythology and love sharing the stories behind my favorite shapes - offering teachings that represent the whole yoga philosophy: yoga is so much more than a workout, my classes always have an intention to them, they tend to be focused on one or two of the chakras and include at least another of the eight limbs (pranayama, one of the yamas or niyamas, meditation…) - making my classes accessible to various communities and identities: yoga is for all! I offer many options in every asana to make them accessible to all bodies, I always encourage practitioners to rest as needed and follow their own pace, and I avoid using gendered cues that are inherently exclusive. I’ve lived in many places and I've worked as a medical imaging software engineer for six years. A year ago, I quit my job and spent a sabbatical year with my partner, traveling Europe in our van. This year-long journey taught me so much and reinforced my confidence that I want yoga to be a major part of my life (both professional and personal). So as we settle into our new home in London, I’m taking this opportunity to focus on my career as a yoga teacher.

David
Online Class of Meditation/Yoga/QiGong/Kung-Fu for everyone
After 20 years of practice in a broad variety of sports, my daily practice now encompasses all these styles for a holistic approach to fitness and inner peace. It is applicable to any level, from beginners who want to discover the potential of their bodies to already sportive people who want to increase performance. During the practice, I emphasize mindfulness and sensations for students to learn how to listen to their bodies. If you want to focus on one style more than the others, don’t hesitate to tell me! I try as much as possible to work without any equipment, although a yoga mat would be useful. However, if you already have weights, ropes, or anything else, let’s make good use of them.

Jiayi
Tailored yoga class (pranayama + meditation +asanas) for beginner level and intermediate level
6 years of yoga practice + 200 hours YTT certified, my understanding of yoga is that it is a way of living, there is so much more than just the asanas (the postures). I want to teach because I know how powerful this practice is and how it has change my life for better. I hope to guide my students in finding a deeper sense of peace and clarify within their physical bodies that will hopefully translate into all aspects of their lives.

Liana
Yoga to fall in love with your body - mind - spirit.
Teaching yoga, regularly practicing, and sharing its principles is a big passion of mine since graduating as a yoga teacher back in 2012 in Washington DC. My teaching style is smooth, comforting, and caring, with 1st priority on the client's goals. After the class, you feel recharged with deep dynamic flow (VINYASA) or fully relaxed long-held yin poses (YIN YOGA). You can experience the mind-calming benefits during MEDITATION, nourishment of touch from the elements of THAI YOGA MASSAGE, and hands-on assistance when the body asks for deeper sensations, simple modifications, or help. If your focus is on strengthening, weight loss, and conditioning of the body, and especially IF you are fond of electronic dance music and open to shaking your hips and spinning wildly your chakras, we are definitely a great match! In this class (called BUTI YOGA) you will be guided in energetic POWER YOGA fused with cardio and HIIT (bonus: a bit of sweat guaranteed ;-). All class types are balanced and harmonious for ANY LEVEL of yoga experience. Classes are accessible to beginners, and can also be quite challenging for regular practitioners. I offer mini-group classes, individual and virtually online. When the weather is warm and dry, we can bring yoga outdoors in the park. Please feel free to reach me if you want to learn more or have any questions. Don't be shy, we are one. ;-) Warmly 🙏 namaste, Liana
