Yoga-Class-2 (767x405)

Thesis: Yoga, Movement, Releasing & Healing

In this transformative yoga class, we invite you to embark on a journey towards healing and reclaiming your body’s innate resilience. Ariel’s class is a compassionate and empowering practice that guides you through a process of releasing and transforming trauma stored within your body.

Led by Ariel, this class offers a safe and nurturing space where individuals can explore their body’s responses to trauma and release the emotional and physical imprints that may have been held for a long time. Through a combination of yoga postures, breathwork, guided meditation, and mindfulness techniques, you will learn techniques to release trauma and cultivate a sense of inner calm, empowerment, and self-compassion.

This class is open to all levels, including beginners. No prior experience with yoga or trauma recovery is necessary. Each class will be adapted to accommodate individual needs and sensitivities, promoting a gentle approach to self-exploration and healing.

The session will begin with a body scan and mantras to foster a sense of safety and grounding. We will then move through a series of asanas, focusing on releasing tension and stored trauma in the body. Ariel will offer modifications and variations to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and supported. Throughout the class, emphasis will be placed on breath awareness, creating a deep connection between mind and body. The practice will conclude with a guided meditation or deep relaxation, allowing for integration and a sense of calm.
