Ayurveda, the sister science of Yoga, is a four dimensional “wholistic”system inspired by the ancient sages in India and refined over 6000 years. Ayurveda, which literatelly means “the study of life” is a natural system of medicine that helps us enhance our physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well being. It is the knowledge of how to live in health and harmony with the universe, which -as ourselves- is made of five elements (earth, air, water, fire, and space). “As in the smallest, so in the Almighty”. By following specific rules and daily regimens according to one’s Prakriti (inherent nature) we can maintain and enhance our health by finding an equilibrium between our own self and the environment, thus becoming our own health provider. An Ayurvedic life style gives us simple tools to attune to nature; it is user friendly, it has no side effects and is approachable by everyone.

In this relaxing yoga practice props - such as blankets and bolsters - are used to support the body. Poses can be held for longer allowing the body to open through passive stretching, eliminating unnecessary straining.
Thursdays Circusoul @ 10:00a yin (90 min)
Yin yoga is complimentary to more active styles of practice. Passive poses, held for an extended period of time, invite a deep journey into the body and mind, accessing emotions and connective tissues skimmed over by quicker movements

Classes are open to all levels. No previous yoga experience is required. It is best to wear stretchy or loose-fitting clothing that doesn’t restrict your movement. Yoga mat optional, as all you need will be provided for you in the classroom.

"Move Your Spirit Yoga is an immersive experience that places asana into the profound context of yoga in its full meaning. Elena travels the world in order to seek understanding and relates her study with magnetic enthusiasm... Or maybe she makes it all up. Authoritative without authority, Elena presents the option to do or do not, to believe or disbelieve, to truly relate on a personal level and take just what is needed from the practice. The music and sequencing, along with incense and altar point us away from the mirror in the room and towards our true Self. Perhaps." C.M.
"Elena's style of yoga is aptly called Move Your Spirit. She is a gifted and inspiring teacher. Through the poses and the philosophy she shares, Elena leads you to a tangible experience of your own Spirit -- every time! I look forward to her classes around the world." D.D.P.
"Elena is the one you're looking for if you want real spiritual Yoga and not just a hyped up workout with exotically named poses. Elena takes you to the heart of who you are and why you are here. She has a remarkable relationship with the Devas which allows them to transform people through her beautiful presence. It is possible to learn from anyone, but if you have the chance learn from someone this gifted. It will save you perhaps lifetimes of non-realization." A.C.
