About the yin class with Sandy 

We practiced a juicy hip sequence today with a lot of hip rotations and we used the massage balls to get into our psoas muscle, which was very effective. We ended the practice with some spinal release poses and it was all fantastic energy. 🙂

About Ida

My name is Ida. I’m a 23 year old danish girl, who has just taken my 200 hours teachers training in Rishikesh, Northindia, and is very excited to start teaching! I believe in a holistic understanding of the body, connecting the physical body with the mind using yoga as a tool. I love how a great vinyasa flow makes my body feel, but I also love some deep stretching. I’m going to start a education at a private gymnastic institut called Gotved Instituttet this September. The education is called ‘bevægelsespædagog’ in danish(movement educator in english). If anyone should be interested. The education is in danish and is about movements, anatomi, bodyawareness and massage. I’m looking forward to teach you a vinyasa class this Saturday.

Here’s a snapshot from today’s classes:

I’m the daughter of two physiotherapists, who taught me the importance of body maintenance through movement, stretching and proper alignment/body posture, which are three keywords that I intend to bring into my practice both as a teacher and as a student.

Date: May 7. (Saturday)
11:00-12:15: Savour the moment slow flow with Sandy
12:30-13:45: Yin yoga with Aura
11:00-12:15  Session 3A 
Savour the moment: Slow flow with Sandy
Can we truly be slow? In constant, fast movements we find escape, escape from our discomfort, sensations or emotions that we don’t like. In this session we are going to dig our trenches and try find courage in our breaths, to see if we can learn to face our slow self, and perhaps even try to tolerate and enjoy it.

Sandy is a self-declared geek, there are very few things Sandy enjoys as much as being defined as a geek. From couch potato to yoga teacher, it was a spark of passion, a journey begins from trying to get a smaller waistline and moves onto discovering peace and learning to enjoy and love her own being.
 
12:30 – 13:45  Session 3 B
Yin yoga with Aura
Hi yoga gangsters!
Come and join me for a lovely yin yoga practice on Saturday May 7th starting at 12:30. We’ll spend the class digging deep into the tissues of our bodies, relaxing and letting go through slow and passive stretches. We’re working towards a well grounded and balanced feeling, and will create more calm space both in our bodies and our minds.
Yin yoga is good for everybody and every kind of body, so tag along even if you haven’t tried it before! Looking forward!

DSC09042

I’m a long time practitioner of yoga, with practice spreading over the past 15+ years. During that time I’ve trained in many different styles of yoga, like hatha, ashtanga, bikram, vinyasa and yin yoga.

The styles of yoga I feel most at home with are a flowing but soft kind of vinyasa and a slow and accepting yin practice. I approach yoga and teaching with humor, and emphasize safe alignment and uncomplicated technique.

Session 1 April 17.
Slow flow & mindfulness meditation

Facilitators

Facilitators’ notes
Sandy:
For me this is a class about state of mind, our spines and how it feels in our spine takes up so much of our focuses everyday – with or without us thinking about it. IT IS the center of your body, and  I believe it is so connected with our minds. Bring your good wills to it and take absolutely good care of it, it is said that you only feel as old as your spine!

Joao:
The meditation practices I facilitate are grounded in simplifying what are the complex thoughts we sometimes have about meditation states of being. My aim is to transfer tools to use meditation outside of the shalas, on the streets, in whatever daily task we put our hands on. our minds, like our muscles require practice to be healthy and supportive. In this session, we learn the focus on the sensations of the body – the physical dimensions of the self. The most hands-on way to bring your mind back to the present moment and calm the flow of thoughts, welcoming them, observing them. The inhale and its fresh sensation. The exhale and its warmth. The temperature, the weight, the pressure and all the many physical sensations your hands can have in contact with your body. And the listening to your mind wanting to get you out of stillness.
