|Class type:||Hot Vinyasa 1|
|Class description:||A dynamic practice in a heated room focusing on moving the body along with the breath. The experience in this class is one of fluidity, motion and heat. Poses are generally held for short periods of time and emphasis on the rhythm of the breath is encouraged with the purpose of aligning and focusing the mind. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included.
The heat adds to the physical effort required to do the postures and aids to condition the body. This class is suitable for students with some Vinyasa experience looking to have a challenging and dynamic experience. No full inversions are included in these classes. Some preparations for inversions and Level 2 postures may be introduced, with options for Level 1 students to ease the transition from Level 1 to Level 2 classes. Room temperature: 35-38 °C.|
|Class level:|| Level 1|
Maurice was directed to yoga by his elite fitness trainer to relieve issues with major anxiety caused by the stress of his professional life. He opened his mind with the guidance of his teachers and found a practice that was suitable for his temperament. This way of practising allowed Maurice to find the clarity to create a lifestyle more suitable to his dreams and desires.
Maurice considers himself truly blessed to have studied with Saul David Raye in Santa Monica, CA and Yogi Vishvketu in Rishikesh, India. Both of these men have instilled the importance of living and teaching from the heart. This approach greatly eased the over-active mind that Maurice had been troubled by.
Maurice's classes are physically demanding with an emphasis on centring and grounding. He believes in the body and mind connection (the body affects the mind and the mind affects body), which yoga can unify and restore.
