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 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). “Hatha” can also translate as “willfull”. Therefore the practice cultivates strength, flexibility and a focused mind. This class focuses on alignment for the different body types, as well as balancing effort and relaxation. And by bringing awareness to the breath, we create mindfulness in each pose. This class is perfect for beginners yet still challenging enough for those who already have an established practice.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
In vinyasa yoga, movement is synchronised with the breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the fluid way that the poses flow from one to another like a dance. The breath is a vital component in the practice because movement from one pose to the next is initiated by an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit to mean “connection” , as in connecting our movement with the breath, or it can also be translated as “to place in a special way.” The term vinyasa also refers to a specific series of movements that are frequently done between each pose in a series.
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.
Restorative is a very slow-paced practice that focuses on balancing and nourishing the nervous system and relaxation 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 deeply rest and recover. Restorative Yoga is a particularly beneficial practice when dealing with stress, injuries or a restless mind, and is accessible to all levels and body types.
Join the community with this free class for all locals that brings together Khmer, foreign residents and travelers. Each class may differ in style, but is always available to all levels and body types. These classes are a great way to experience the benefits of yoga while enjoying this diverse community that Siem Reap has to offer.
Unlike more dynamic versions of yoga the emphasis in Sivananda Yoga is on finding correct alignment in each pose, stability in the breath and silence in the mind. The class begins with a relaxation, followed by breathing exercises and a sequence where poses will be held from anywhere between 30-90 seconds, allowing you to really feel present, with plenty of relaxation poses throughout. This is yoga as it is taught in India.
Yin Yoga is a very modern form of yoga where we target the connective tissues between the muscles and the bones, as opposed to the muscles themselves. As a result, no warm-up is necessary. In Yin we learn to connect with our breath, observe our bodies and by releasing our muscles instead of engaging them we allow gravity to take us deeper into the pose, often with the support of cushions and props. It is both engaging and relaxing and will leave you feeling calm, open and peaceful.
