Yoga is an system of observances, techniques, and practices that promote a healthy body, a calm and composed mind, and create a foundation for higher awareness.
“Yoga” is a Sanskrit word that translates as “union”. Closer to the surface, this union manifests as a joining of body and mind, a balance of the physical and subtle energies that we are made of. At the deepest level, Yoga can be interpreted as a “yoking” of the individual consciousness with the universal consciousness, a bonding of Self and the Divine.
Although Yoga is traditionally a spiritual practice, it is commonly pursued for its physical and psychological benefits, which include: increasing flexibility, strength, and mobility; improving circulation, respiration and digestion; enhancing posture, balance and endurance; stimulating vital glands and organs, and relieving fatigue, tension, and emotional stress.
Hatha is a combination of two Sanskrit words, "Sun and Moon" describing a balance of two opposite yet interdependent energies (Light/Dark, Masculine/Feminine, Yin/Yang). "Ha" (sun), represents a more active, heated, extroverted energy, while "tha" (moon) represents a cooler, more passive and introverted energy. When we pursue this balance in our Yoga postures, not only do we avoid injury, but we are able to hold them longer, explore and breathe into them, and lay a foundation for expanded awareness.
Yin Yoga focuses on the "tha" aspects of the practice. By sinking and releasing into postures for longer durations we are able to target the deep connective tissue (ligaments, tendons, myofascia) that binds the body together and influence the subtle energ that allow communication and harmony between the body and mind.
Vinyasa is a Sanskrit word that translates as "to place in a special way". It refers to conscious, deliberate movement. Vinyasa is a more active asana practice where we focus on coordinating body, breath, and mind through a series of movements that flow from one into the next.
Private lessons grant you the opportunity to explore Yoga at your own pace, and on your own schedule, giving attention to your special needs and goals. Schedule a private lesson at Pinneys Beach, in the Yoga room at Oualie Beach Resort, or allow me to customize a unique session for yourself, family, or group at your home or hotel.
What a better way to wind down your day than by watching the sun disappear below the horizon while being guided through a gentle, relaxing Yoga and Meditation session. Come early for a refreshing sea bath. After class try some traditional, vegan, Rastafarian "Ital" food and stay for the cool, down-to-earth vibes at Pinneys Beach.
Yoga Nidra, or "Yogic Sleep" is a guided relaxation where the body rests while a sliver of consciousness remains and settles in a deep state of stillness and peace. It is believed that 30 minutes of this conscious "sleep" is equivalent to about 3 hours of regular sleep.
Take a relaxing dip in the historical and therapeutic volcanic hot springs in Charlestown, Nevis, while being guided through meditation, conscious breathing, gentle stretches, and self massage techniques. A great remedy for stress, muscle tension, and pain
Challenge your stability and focus while taking a scenic paddle along the shoreline with a SUP (Paddleboard) Yoga class. If you lose your balance, SPLASH! No worries, that is part of the fun! (Weather permitting)
Develop a deep inner awareness and communion with nature by incorporating mindfulness into your hike. Enjoy a guided walking meditation through the Nevision rainforest.
