5Elements Flow is a dynamic vinyasa flow practice within the Kunga Yoga methodology developed by Kristin Cooper and inspired by the teachings of Ayurveda.
5Elements Water Flow is a rejuvenating practice incorporating fluid vinyasa, and circular wave motion throughout the body within a soft, slowly flowing sequence. This is a nourishing and calm practice meant to balance the effects of stress, depletion, and over-stimulation from life or from strong heated agin-based practices. The circular movements of 5Elements Water Flow lubricate all of the joints in the body, and support increased spinal mobility, range of motion, and balance. 5Elements Water Flow is a full body vinyasa practice with an emphasis on shoulder opening, fluid backbends, and the six movements of the spine. Working to move the body as liquid matter; we release old pattens of stress and tightness. All levels are welcome, and this practice ends with a lengthy relaxation.
5Elements Earth Flow is a grounding, hip-opening practice which emphasizes stability and strength through a steady and strong flowing sequence. Strength is cultivated through a series of slow salutations (namaskars) and standing and supine hip-opening postures. 5Elements Earth Flow is for all levels of students that wish to move through a slow, deep vinyasa practice; completing with a restorative savasana and a longer period of meditation.
Hot Flow – set: The Barkan Method is a style of Hatha Yoga that originated from a lineage in Calcutta, India. The Barkan Method finds its roots from this lineage in Calcutta, but also integrates postures from other styles of Yoga to create variations and even greater range of motion. The yoga classes are practiced in a heated room to stretch and strengthen various areas of the body. The practice brings vital balance and restores all systems to optimal health. Consistency will create a physical, mental and spiritual harmony that will be felt in all areas of the practitioner’s life. [www.barkanmethod.com]
Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for longer periods of time. Yin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. A more meditative approach to yoga, yin aims at cultivating awareness of inner silence, and bringing to light a universal, interconnecting quality. [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yin_yoga]
