In Person and On Line Yoga Classes
Yoga practice is good for everyone but not the same for everybody. That is, every body and everybody's needs are different. Henrica offers a variety of styles in every yoga class to help students find balance in breath, body, movement and mind. And it is her personal goal to make every body feel comfortable so that everyone enjoys the rewards and benefits of yoga practice.
Regular yoga practice is a powerful way to nourish self-care. Whether it is hatha yoga, vinyasa yoga, restorative or yin yoga, a consistent practice improves strength and balance, mobility and flexibility, and also helps to improve endurance for other physical activities. Henrica tailors her style to the students' needs, offers modifications if necessary or an additional challenge if preferred.
Yoga is not only about physical wellbeing. Yoga is about the mind and based on the teachings of yoga such as Patanjali's sutras. Regular yoga practice helps calm the mind through focused breath work, engaging in mindfulness and practicing meditation. Henrica knows firsthand how yoga helps deal with the stresses and challenges in life, and how important it is to breathe. Attend a yoga class with Henrica and discover how often you are reminded to breathe or to use your breath!
