In the meantime, she wishes to bring a little bit of paradise to her students through the practice of yoga.
Yogazander is a gentle style of Hatha Yoga which combines classical yoga poses and breathing exercises with the intentions of the Alexander Technique. Some hands-on support may be used to invite the soft release of tension. This combination leads to an easy, natural alignment in the poses. The goal of this practice is to increase flexibility and reduce stress in both the body and the mind. This class is taught by Helena who developed Yogazander and has logged over 1000 hours teaching yoga. In addition to the weekly class, weekend workshops are also offered periodically. Participants have rated these workshops and classes as “extremely enjoyable” and “relaxing.” Experience how good you can feel! The practice of Yogazander increases body awareness. It is beneficial for the experienced Yogi as well as the novice. All levels welcome.
