The yoga practice aims to create union between body, mind and spirit, as well as between the individual self and universal consciousness. Such a union tends to neutralize ego-driven thoughts and behaviours, creating a sense of spiritual awakening.
Modern yoga is most commonly associated with the physical practice of asana, a series of postures often weaved together in styles such as Vinyasa Flow or Ashtanga. Asana practice is generally intended to build strength and stamina, to improve flexibility, coordination and balance, and to relax the body.
Yoga is also used as a therapeutic tool for many physical and mental conditions, and mind-body research is now demonstrating its effectiveness as a treatment for chronic pain, anxiety, depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes, to name but a few.
Laura will be taking you through different Vinyasa flows such Dynamic, Mandala or Rocket which are a playful practice that links movement with breath in one smooth continuous sequence. In this class you will be led from one pose to another through your inhale and exhale, creating heat inside the body and a stillness in the mind.
Zumba is so much more than just a bunch of people gathering in a studio to dance their hearts out and get their groove on. Zumba is actually an incredible workout.
Zumba, a type of dance fitness that’s been around since the 1990s, is the backbone of the dance fitness craze—it incorporates a variety of Latin-inspired dance moves and music to promote a healthy heart, a healthy dose of aerobic activity, and a fun, exciting way to build and tone muscle, improve cardio, promote flexibility, and decrease stress.
You don't have to be perfect or know the steps, just simply come and have fun, joy, meet new people, laugh, dance and keep fit!
During sunny and warm season, mostly between spring and early fall, Laura is offering more options of Zumba and Yoga classes outside in either New Cross, St John's or Greenwich parks. For more details, please get in touch via email@example.com.
