Yoga La Source

Rise & Shine Yoga

Yoga La Source is happy to offer a morning yoga course for those 50+ who wish to experience a joyful immersion into physical and spiritual yoga and stay fit, strong and healthy with Denise Pesch who has 40 years of yoga teaching experience. The class structure is as follows:

Your first practice will be the Mountain Pose - an important standing balancing pose that emphasizes stability and physical alignment that leads to energetic, emotional, mental and spiritual alignment as well.

Additional standing balancing postures will wake up, stimulate, and strengthen the articulations and muscles of the feet, legs, hips, and core muscles all while developing concentration to be in the present moment for stability of the mind.

Standing asanas or postures like Trikonasana (triangle) and Prasarita Padottanasana (wide-legged forward fold) will increase your body’s stability and strength.

During the seated asanas, you will take time to observe, improve and regulate your breathing. These practices together with specific breath work will definitely strengthen your torso from the inside out thus liberating postural blockages and allow your ribcage and all breathing muscles to move freely and with joy. Gentle spinal rotations will complete the seated practice and enable you to feel new strength and vigour in the spine which translates into a feeling of well-being.

During the supine asanas, leg and abdominal practices improve leg, abdominal and back strength and bring vitality.

Some easy backbends, like a dynamic half bridge, bring your awareness to the beautiful and invigorating wave movement of your spine. Shalabhasana (locust or grasshopper) done lying on the abdomen specifically strengthens your back and internal muscles and massages your internal organs.

The sequence finishes with a shoulderstand. Depending on your strength and health condition, variations will be suggested like the practice of lying with your legs up against the wall or with a cushion under your buttocks.

Specific breathing techniques will clear your energy channels and your brain leading to mental stillness and deep relaxation.
