This is an open level class, it is suitable for beginners as well intermediate Yogis. Each Yoga class consists of Asanas [Physical Practice of Hatha Yoga], Yoga Nidra [Meditation] and Pranayama [Breathing Exercises]. We will begin the class with a short grounding meditation, then practice the sun salutation, some basic asana postures, that train both strength and flexibility, we practice conscious breathing that activates the life force and then finish with a balancing meditation. The term Yoga comes from Sanskrit roots and means union between Body and Mind. As a holistic practice it will prepare us for a new kind of readiness to interact in daily life situations with more focus, balance and a calm and clear mind. Bring comfortable clothes. See you on the mat. :) Navina OM
My name is Navina. I am half Indian, half Austrian, nomadic lifestyle, currently in Lisbon. I am a Yoga Teacher since 2013 with many years of expertise that I would like to share with you. I teach Hatha Yoga since 5 years and practice since 15 years and with an Indian father I grew up with the Vedic wisdom. Yoga means Union, it means so much to me, it is the art of healing and becoming whole. It gives you focus, clarity, strength and concentration. I received my Yoga Teacher Certificate from Underground Yoga Parlour for Self-Knowledge and Social Justice. Since then I have been teaching in Portugal, Hamburg and Spain such as House of Zen, Space Yoga Lisbon, Work in Studio, Wayra House Guincho, Margaridas Place, Espaço..
