To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear – Buddha
Yoga & Meditation practices date back to 300 B.C. and various traditions are found in both Buddhist and Hindu traditions.
We believe the goals of Yoga and Meditation practices are self-realization and keeping oneself balanced and healthy on a daily basis. Health is your greatest wealth. The body’s DNA knows how to heal itself; all it needs is the energy. The energizing, rejuvenating Yoga & Mediation practices can be the source of this energy.
At Navutu Dreams, you have the opportunity to learn humble practices of Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa and Meditation & Gentle Flow classes. Daily Classes are available.
Hatha Flow Yoga
Hatha Yoga is the foundation of all other styles of yoga. It is translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon,” bringing together and balancing the sun and moon properties within each of us (masculine and feminine). Therefore both strength and flexibility will be cultivated, as well as balancing the effort and relaxation of each pose. This class focuses on alignment, it brings awareness to the breath and uses the breath to create mindfulness in each pose. This class is perfect for beginners yet still challenging enough for those who have practiced yoga for years.
Vinyasa / Flow Yoga
In Vinyasa or Flow yoga movement is synchronised to the breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the fluid way that the poses run together and become like a dance. The breath is a vital component because movement from one pose to the next follows an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit to mean “connection.” We can interpret this as a connection between movement and breath. The term vinyasa also refers to a specific series of movements that are frequently done between each pose in a series. This is a variation of the Sun Salutations.
The traditional Ashtanga practice follows a set series of poses that intensely challenge the body and mind. Through the use of focused breath and a dedication to the dynamic physical practice, one can achieve a level of mastery over body and mind. Created by Sri. T Krishnamacharya, devotees of this practice look toward Mysore, India to fully develop their skills and train with the masters. Teachers can be found worldwide and bring this distinct style to those looking for a structured, strong practice.
Unlike the dynamic, movement-oriented practices of yoga, Restorative yoga focuses on the nervous system and emotional responses of the body. The class is built around several reclining and prone poses that heavily rely on the use of props and pillows to completely support the body. These poses are then sustained for several minutes as the body and nervous system are able to rest and recover. Restorative is accessible to all levels and body types and is suggested for people with stress, injuries or a restless mind.
