Get Your Warrior On
Sunday Funday wth Ricardo is a Vinyasa Flow practice with a focus on play. This improves the ability to enter poses without judgement, happily as play opens the mind and body.
Vinyasa Flow is a practice where we move fluidly between postures (asanas) in rhythm with the breath, often using sun salutations as the means to do so. The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses.
Iyengar with Eugenia is Hatha Yoga focused on alignment. The practice is based in the tradition of the style's founder, BKS Iyengar, who not only developed the particular style but also many of the props we use at Tribal to enter the postures in an aligned and safe manner. BKS Iyengar also wrote the books Light on Yoga and Light on Life.
Yin Yoga with Barbara and Joanne is a practice that cultivates mindfulness and body awareness. We hold poses from 1 to 10 minutes with the goal of releasing Myofascial tension and blocks to the free movement of energy in the body. The slow and long held poses increase circulation in joints as well as improving flexibility and developing a quite mind that is open to a meditative state.
Roll & Release
Roll and Release with Joanne and Daria is a Vinyasa Flow practice where we use massage balls to deepen the release of stored tensions in the body. Massage balls are used on specific parts of the body within a gentle flow practice to give a deep massage and release tension.
Restorative with Barbara and Joanne is a slow practice with the poses supported and generally reclining. Supported poses are held between 3 and 10 minutes but, unlike in Yin, participants are encouraged to relax into the poses rather than looking for the deepest posture possible. The result is deep relaxation and restoration of the bodies energy levels.
Rhythmic Flow is a vinyasa flow practice moving in rhythm to a musical beat. While the breath is the guide, Flavio enhances the practice with music and moves through asanas with a focus on enoying the flow and the grace acquired through repetition.
Hatha with Blanca and Barbara refers to the practice of the physical yoga postures, or asanas. Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha based. The word “hatha” can be translated as “willful” or “forceful,” or as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha): the yoga of balance.
Acro yoga is a type of partner yoga that uses participants’ bodies to achieve balancing postures unmanageable alone. It increases concentration, improves strength, balance and trust and is loads of fun. We have Acro Yoga at Tribal on special occasions with Flavio.
