                                                         Monday Restorative 

When life is too busy and stressful this is the practice for you.

This 60 minute practice guides you to land the shoulders, mobilise the neck and trunk and move breath along the spine with Apana, Samana and Prana Vayu. To assist a more parasympathetic response and help balance the autonomic nervous system we then do a practice of 'who' breathing. To follow some deep hip opening, back massaging and a sub-occipital release. This prepares the body to then transition into a guided centring meditation to help you deeply relax, and re-find your centre.

                                                                               Tuesday Slings

A Slings Myofascial Training® practice focussing on our body wide myofascial core. This practice starts with a warm up and waking up the feet, calves and lower legs. The hip flexors are also in focus using various strategies to hydrate, soften and lengthen them. Stephanie guides you through standing awareness and optimal alignment which then supports the more dynamic and elasticising portion of the class where standing on one leg and multidimensional dynamic stability are practiced. The class winds down with centring integration and a restful pelvic massage. This practice will improve your balance and bring a spring to your step!

                                                                              Dynamic Hatha Yoga

This practice is SLOW, SIMPLE and STRENGTHENING. We begin with sitali pranayama and lions breath followed by a flowing Surya Namaskar A. This leads into hip opening preparation for a standing asana sequence including dancer pose, Virabhadrasana II (warrior 2), Trikonasana (triangle), and Prasaritta Padottanasana (wide angled forward fold) with a deep wringing out of the spine ribs and shoulders. Malasana brings us to the ground and we wind down into centring integration and seated forward fold before absorbing the practice with Savasana.

                                                                          Thursday Pilates Mat Work 

This Mat Work practice combines traditional Joseph Pilates Mat exercises with some Slings Myofascial Training® exercises such as the use of the massage balls for core strengthening and back massaging and a side lying triceps push up for toning and strengthening our arms inside and out. Also included is a stretching and gliding exercise preparing for the Saw. This practice tones, strengthens, massages and lengthens the whole body leaving you awake, energised and more limber.

                                                                                Saturday Slings

In this Slings Myofascial Training® class I partner up with my husband Tiago! The class focusses on the interplay between our Superficial Back Line and Superficial Front Line with a flow state Synerchi sequence that is also glide enhancing for the tissues of the back, shoulders and hips and hydrating for the hip flexors especially.

To balance this Sagittal Plane focus the Lateral Lines and Spiral Lines are also woven into the sequence. This practice helps the whole body become more permeable by releasing held tensions and stuck tissues, and getting fluid flowing so we can access our true centre and experience the authentic uprightness it provides.
