Pranayama, Stretch & Mobility
Pranayama Stretch & Mobility is an intermediate practice whose focus is on performing postures that improve the flexibility, range of motion & stretching ability of different muscle groups. Drawing on the Hatha school of Yoga, the practice starts with a warm up & progressively unfolds to performing asanas that have a stretching effect, including side stretches, forward bends, hip openers, back bends & twistings. The pace alternates & it can involve faster transitions followed by longer holding of the postures. The intensity of the practice is tailored & includes variations of the asanas making it inclusive for all levels of students. The physical practice gives way to conscious breathing exercises rooted to the yogic tradition (Pranayama), toward the last 15 minutes of the class, allowing the students to connect with themselves, internalise the effects of the physical exercise & get centered.
