Yin Yoga (needleless acupuncture)

Teacher: Klára Burgess

*open class / course   7.10. - 2.12. 2019

Yin Yoga helps distribution of chi into the cells and organs of the body. It significantly contributes to the flexibility of joints, strengthens the immune system, releases excess tension and brings a feeling of ease and lightness in the body. It effects organ health in the same way as acupuncture by applying constant pressure alongside the meridians. To achieve this, poses are held for at least 3 minutes. We learn to be fully engaged in feeling our bodies and mental states as well as to observe how we are responding to our moment –to-moment experience as it unfolds. It is therefore an in-depth training in participatory observation and enhancement of the body, heart, and mind.

Hatha Yoga 

Teacher: Lída Rejzková

*course / open class

Hatha Yoga focuses on a thorough stretching of the whole body. The exercises stress the connection between breath and movement. We will always calm down at the beginning of each individual lesson using breathing exercises, then warm up during a dynamic series of Sun Salutation, and we will progressively learn individual positions – asanas, in which we will concentrate on detailed work of the whole body and we will also practice upside-down poses. At the end a final relaxation will intensify the effects of the exercises and energize and balance the body. The lesson is suitable for everyone – younger and older people, men and women. Take a moment for yourselves and come to exercise and relax.

8-Week Mindfulness Course (MBSR)

Teacher: Katarína Bírešová

*course 

As human beings, we naturally experience stress, along with difficult physical sensations, feelings and moods. The core skill that you will learn and practice is MINDFULNESS − a way of paying attention to what goes on in the present moment in your body and mind, without getting carried away by worrying or other negative stress-amplifying reactions. Being mindful can significantly change the way we relate to stress and difficulty, and enhance our capacity to cope on a daily basis.

MBSR is a programme founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn (University of Massachusets Medical Centre) in 1979 which has undergone extensive trials. Structured MBSR course offers a variety of techniques to help manage stress using meditation and mindfulness exercises. It is taught in a supportive group environment, daily practice of various exercises (with recordings) being an essential part of the course. More about MBSR at https://lessstress.cz/en/ .

This course will be conducted in English and consists of eight weekly two-hour sessions (Tuesday 19:30-21:30), plus one full day retreat 12.10. 2019 (a number of exercises, guided practices, meditation, silent lunch) serving as an exercise to implement mindfulness in daily life.

Participation cost is 5.000CZK, discounted price is offered to seniors, students, disabled, parents on parental leave, single mothers, social and health workers. The price can be reduced on-demand if you are on budget or in a difficult situation.
