    Class Description

    This class invites students to an unchartered physical and spiritual journey into their true essence. Incorporating asana into a creative flow of breath and movement YOGEA reinterprets spiritual traditions and mediation practices from all over the world for the needs of the modern individual. Focusing on breath extension, energetic and anatomical alignment and revolving around a relevant esoteric theme the class spirals students into varying sequences that cultivate a nimble mind and a lucid body, promoting flexibility, stimulating glands, soothing the nervous system and invoking an appreciation and joy for life. The class starts with valuable breathing practices and tools for creative visualization that help students tune in and create space for unleashing their creative potential. A fluid warm up leads them into a series of postures that generate heat, open ligaments, joints, and tendons for a deep practice and anchors students into their divine blueprint. The class culminates with a well- rounded blend of stabilizing standing postures, invigorating back- bends, detoxifying twists, de-cluttering hip-openers and winds down with introspective forward bends and soothing inversions. A brief relaxation or creative visualization closes the sacred circle of urgency and remembrance in gratitude and reverence, acknowledging the interdependence of all."

    Yogea Style:
    Yogea is an emerging ArtFlow yoga style of “Engaged spirituality” that has developed over the past 20 years across Europe, Asia and America. It is geared towards unleashing authenticity, cultivating mindfulness and adaptability to grow and thrive in a constantly changing world. Its creatively blended exercise routines structured like a compass, together with its breathing and meditation techniques inspire practitioners to keep physically fit, mentally balanced, stress-free and able to tap the cosmic flow by bridging the personal with the universal.

    Students should bring their own Yoga mats to class
