Mornings with Destination Namaste

 

Each morning begins with a gentle wake up, herbal teas are served before your morning Vinyasa Flow class starts.
Morning Yoga practice is 90min. Class will begin with some basic breathing exercises, a slow warm up building up towards your Vinyasa Flow practice.
 
What is Vinyasa Flow Yoga ?
 
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is based on the principles of Ashtanga Vinyasa, Iyengar and Viniyoga systems. It is a very modern style of Yoga that allows the teacher a lot of creativity when it comes to sequencing a class. 
It is an invigorating practice designed to elevate your heart rate, restore concentration and focus, finishing off with a grounding seated sequence and cool down, too finish off with your meditative savasana pose. 
 
It has five main ingredients:
 
1. ASANA: Postures or poses
2. VINYASA: How the poses/postures are linked together to form a sequence
3. PRANAYAMA: The type of breath, for Vinyasa this is UJJAYI breath which is practiced by keeping the mouth closed and the air moving in and out through the nostrils. 
4. BANDHAS: More commonly referred to as ‘locks.’ Which help guide energy through the body. 
5. DRISHTI: Your gaze, the focal point of your eyes during your practice.

The class will be followed by a delicious, healthy and nutritious breakfast.
