YOGA WITH BARBARA
Classes are based upon the way I learned to practice yoga myself. This method of teaching is rooted in the traditional foundations of yoga.
Are you seeking to improve your flexibility, strengthen your body, sleep better, get rid of aches and pains, destress, calm your mind, find inner peace?
If you are thinking: “I am not flexible enough”. “I cannot do all those crazy postures”. “I am too old”. “I am too fat”. “I am too stiff”. “My body aches”. “I cannot meditate”. “I tried yoga before and it is not for me”….
Don’t worry. I am also not super flexible. I am 50+ and I used to have some aches and I had to try many yoga classes before I found a Yoga approach that felt right for me.
Let’s practice Yoga together and embark on this beautiful journey with a holistic approach to YOGA:
Why Practice Yoga?
Integrating yoga into our lives helps us to achieve a healthier body, a calmer mind, an inner strength and serenity to face the challenges of modern daily life. Thanks to yoga we can be more fulfilled and happier and feel a stronger connection to the world around us.
Yoga provides a holistic approach that benefits body, mind, and soul. We use the mind to heal the body and in turn, the body to heal the mind.
Yoga brings physiological and psychological benefits, reduces heart rate and blood pressure, relieves anxiety and depression, eases back pain and improves health related quality of life, cardiovascular health and sleep.
Yoga practice invites us to pause and let go, to listen deeply and to be present for whatever is arising physically, mentally, and spiritually; to be grateful and respectful of ourselves and the beings around us, to navigate our journey of self-discovery with inner peace.
How we practice Yoga
We practice the yoga postures mindfully, treating ourselves with kindness, accepting our physical limitations and making peace with our body. Conscious breathing guides us throughout the practice as an essential tool to release tensions in our body, calm our mind and purify the heart. Whilst working on the physical body, we observe how the energy flows and can tune into the various dimensions of our inner experience: emotions, sensations, thoughts and feelings.
Already by the end of the first class you will feel better; more energised, have a calmer mind and overall, you will start being a happier person.
✤ Remember: Yoga is not a performance…
Home Studio & Open Air Yoga Classes
Depending on the group, season or weather; yoga classes take place in my home studio in Coppet, in my garden or by the lake.
