|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|
|Originally from Santa Monica, California, Maurice designed men's clothing for 15 years in New York and in Southern California. Fortunately he was directed by his elite fitness trainer to give yoga a try to relieve his issues with major anxiety caused from the stress of his professional life.|
Maurice considers himself truly blessed to have studied with Saul David Raye in Santa Monica and Yogi Vishvketu in Rishikesh, India. Inspired by these two great souls, he took his first steps to change his life. Maurice became enthralled with the philosophy of yoga as a way of living and has been practising since 1997. He opened his mind and with his teachers' guidance, found a practice that was suitable to his temperament. This way of practising allowed Maurice to find the courage and clarity to create a lifestyle more suitable to his dreams and desires.
Maurice has completed training in and continues to be a student of Thai Yoga Therapy (Thai massage), Ayurveda (the science of Indian medicine), Hatha Yoga (the yoga of sun and moon) and Vinyasa Flow Yoga (a yoga of tempo and rhythm interconnected by the breath). All four modalities he incorporates into his teaching. Maurice hopes to create a space of exploration and potential transformation for the student in each class.
