    Cesar Reyes Lopez

    Cesar Reyes Lopez



    Cesar Reyes Lopez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico. From an early age, Cesar studied piano, drawing, painting, soccer, and eventually trumpet. As he strove to attain a formal dance education he encountered his first yoga teacher. In 2004, Cesar devoted himself to the ancient practice of Yoga and began to unravel his own body’s wisdom. The allied arts of Yoga and Dance became his tools of self-inquiry and self-expression. Cesar practices and specializes in Asthanga and Hatha Yoga.

    While training as a triathlete, Cesar experienced a time of inner awakening and an acquisition of an intelligent and constructive way to hone the power of will to train the body both mentally and kinesthetically. Cesar takes the psycho-physical balance he attained as an athlete and directes it into his yoga practice. He has been teaching yoga, and embracing also other forms of energy work like Tai-Chi Chuan and Qi-Gong.

    2010 New York City: Cesar is a recipient scholarship at “City Center Ballet Arts” where he is currently training different styles of dance. In addition Cesar will also perform with Nina Buisson Contemporary Move in May. He is a new member of the “Overground Physical Theatre Company” who will perform in May at the Judson Memorial Church.

    Class Description:

    This is a fusion class combining different Yoga sources, such as Ashtanga and Iyengar, Tai-Chi Chuan, as well as developmental physical techniques from dance and sport. The class focuses on developing mobility of the skeletal structure and spine in order to stimulate the organ systems, helping practitioners develop psycho-physical self-awareness. The class begins with a gentle meditative kinetic warm up introducing static postures, progressively increasing the pace time trough dynamic sequences, and ending with a deep relaxation.

    The core routine revolves around the practice of yoga “asanas”, such as forward bends, back bends, side bends, twists and inversions, reclining, balancing and standing postures of the traditional Ashtanga series, as well as supported postures that alternate in an attempt to cultivate an integrated vision of our own body.

    Special emphasis is placed on correct alignment, and hands- on adjustment is offered throughout the practice. The class does not follow an identical pattern, but is specifically tailored according to the size and individual needs of the students. No previous experience or knowledge in Yoga is required, and regardless of age and physical condition you can find your way of dealing with any physical, emotional and mental pain or discomfort.

    Students should bring their own Yoga matts to class
