|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.|

|Shalina used to suffer from stress and neck pain due to long working hours at the office. In 2006, she chanced upon the mat and was immediately struck by the deep sense of peacefulness that filled her whole body and mind. She knew that she had just embarked on a blessed journey towards radiant health. After months of consistent practice her health improved and she became much calmer and happier.|
Shalina is grateful to all the teachers who have helped her grow. She is particularly indebted to Patrick Creelman for his guidance, intelligent alignment and precise teaching skills. These are not only helpful for her teaching but also for her own practice. Patrick has inspired her to be more mindful and observant both on and off the yoga mat. He has also introduced her to Tantric philosophy which helps her to explore the supreme potential within any moment.
Shalina teaches an energetic practice with a strong focus on alignment. She encourages her students to always keep a consistent practice with determination, patience and bravery. Apart from asana, Shalina introduces breathing exercises and meditation in her class to help students explore their inner self and experience the true essence of practising yoga.
