The aim of Noemi's Align and Flow class is to help you understand your body and experience it more comfortably, to help you understand your breath and direct it more skillfully, and to help you observe your mind with greater space and clarity.
"Alignment to me is completely different than a set of rules" she says. It's an opportunity to have a conversation with your body and to experiment, explore and to accept the invitation to have a conversation and a deeper connection to yourself. At the same time as we work hard we laugh a lot. Playfulness is an important component in my classes!
This month we are (re-) building upper body opening and strength and we'll use poses such as chaturanga and side plank to play with and measure progress. Lots of support in the form of props to be expected as needed and to get us there! I might even give some home work! It will be great fun."
"Noemi embodies what I think of as the 'elegance' of yoga. A wide knowledge base, understated strength, graceful flexibility and a peaceful, calming nature that puts her students at ease. What comes forth to her students is a secure feeling of being in very capable hands. Noemi's Align and Flow class will give you the chance to find this same elegance in your practice on and off the mat." ~dina
We believe that yoga has the power to transform lives, and our goal is to make this transformative practice available to people of all shapes, sizes, ages and abilities.
Yoga is an ancient scientific system designed to empower health, happiness and a greater sense of self. The word ‘yoga’ means ‘union’ and refers to the oneness of mind, body and spirit. Yoga is not a religion, it is a practice. It supports and enhances all cultural, racial and religious backgrounds. All classes at Santosha reflect this philosophy, where everyone is welcome to find peace and contentment just as they are.
What Students Are Saying
Located in the heart of Bethany Village, we are dedicated to helping students of all ages and abilities discover their inner strength on and off the mat. More about us.
