Replacement class: Sivananda Yoga
starts Saturday 02 march 2019 at 14:00
If you are a term student with credits from canceled classes this term, you may use a credit to attend this special Sivananda yoga replacement class on Saturday, March 2nd from 14h00 to 15h30.
Style: Sivananda Yoga
Sivananda Yoga is the style of hatha yoga practiced at Sivananda centers founded by Swami Vishnudevananda of Kerala. It is for the student seeking inner tranquility and centeredness. In a Sivananda class, we start with conscious breathing exercises to tune inward then the sun salutation, a cardio-vascular exercise, to warm up. This is followed by 12 core postures to channel and concentrate vital energy. A guided relaxation is done at the end and brings about the overall sense of harmony and well-being one feels after class. Regardless of whether a student comes into class tired or stressed, the balanced nature of the Sivananda sequence renders the student calm and lucid. Go to the Sivananda yoga page.
Teacher: Min Shen
Min grew up in China with a family tradition of Tai-chi and Buddhist philosophy to life. Her grandmother, who is now 94 and still practicing Tai-chi, shaped her childhood. Blessed with material scarcity and hardships, they had the opportunity to search for meaning in the internal world. Her personal yoga practice started in 2007 in North America. In 2015, she took an RYT 200 hour-training and began teaching in Luxembourg. Shortly thereafter, she participated in a 100-hour Vinyasa Krama Advanced Teacher training with Ramaswami, one of the last living disciples of Krishnamacharya, and completed the Sivananda 200-hour certification in 2018. She also received a Sanskrit certificate from the University of Oxford extension. She continues with training, workshops and yoga classes to deepen and widen her knowledge of yoga. She is grateful to all the teachers who she met along her path, famous ones and unknown ones alike, who have taught and inspired her immensely. As a teacher, she believes in continuous self-improvement and staying true to what she teaches. She comes to her yoga mat with the understanding that all things are impermanent, and what we have is the here and now. Go to Min's page.
