Yoga Synergy -The Air Sequence 6 wk Course with Alex

The Yoga Synergy sequences are named in honour of the Pancha mahabhuta (5 great elements) – Earth, Water, Fire, Air and Ether.

Each of the sequences is unique in its own right, and therefore open to all students whether they have attended any of the previous courses or not.

Air is the fourth of the 5 Yoga Synergy sequences, designed to lighten the body and spirit as we move out of the cooler winter and on into spring.

In Ayurveda, Air (Vaayu), the wind, is the backdrop of our environment, the an aspect that we may not always notice. Air is the second lightest element next to Ether, in that we can perceive it both visually and tactilely, in the branches of a tree as they move in the wind or the feel of it on our skin.

 

The intention with which we practise the Air sequence is:

* To move the stale energy of winter out of our system

* Bring a lightness to our being

* Increase mobility and movement through all the systems of the body

* Cleanse our entire system (body, breath and mind)

* Create mental clarity and positivity

 

Over an 6-week period we will build a sequence, focusing on the standing postures including the Salutation sequence, then inversions (teaching simple and more challenging versions) and floor postures, completing each practice with pranayama and relaxation.

 

Yoga Synergy is a dynamic Vinyasa-style of yoga with a physiotherapy background that provides students with a strong but safe flowing and meditative yoga practice.

 

Students benefit from this dynamic style of Yoga in the following ways:

* Postures that stretch, tone and strengthen the entire skeletal system, working not only on the body’s frame but the internal organs, glands and nerves

* Concentration and attention in each posture encourages deep body awareness and relaxation

* Breathing exercises refresh and cleanse the body and help to calm the mind

* Improved vitality and flexibility

* Enhanced immune system response

* Increased muscle and bone strength

* Enhance capability for relaxation

About the teacher:

Alex has been practising yoga for more than 20 years. During this time she studied a three-year training program with the founders of Yoga  Synergy, Simon Borg-Olivier and Bianca Machliss.

 As a qualified Yoga Synergy teacher, Alex ran the Yoga Synergy School in Manly, which she has taught at for more than 11 years. She  founded the Yoga Co-operative Manly and is excited about bringing Yoga Synergy to the Manly Yoga Centre. She has a warmth, energy  and real love for teaching that comes through in her classes.

 As the mother of three young children, Alex understands the importance of student practice to bring balance in our busy lives, using the  physical body to connect the mind and the breath. At the same time, she believes that safely challenging the body, in a fun and intelligent  way, helps create a strong, healthy body and a calm, focused mind – not just on the mat, but beyond.
