Yoga

Aspire Yoga allows you to experience increased self awareness, balance, clarity and contentedness throughout your daily life enriching you with insights and personal empowerment.

Aspire Yoga rejuvenates the mind, body and breath and balances you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually in order for you to live to your full potential. Yoga teaches you to journey inwards, to get to know yourself and promotes a healthy and harmonious life.

As your yoga practice begins to grow, so too will your body become more accustomed to perfecting the art, developing a deep rhythmic breath to move from pose to pose with even greater ease and awareness – this is Vinyasa.

Some of the benefits of YOGA is:

  • A calm and balanced mind, body and spirit
  • Increased energy levels
  • Improved strength, stamina and flexibility
  • Decreased feelings of stress, anxiety and depression
  • Clear consciousness
  • Improved digestion and health
  • Cleansing and detoxification of liver and other vital organs
  • Improved sleep wake patterns and overall sense of wellbeing
  • Deep sense of body awareness
  • Prevention of injury and muscle stiffness
  • Cardiovascular workout
  • Increased weight loss

The yoga style Karin is trained in is called Purna, which means integrated or complete. Purna Yoga represents a holistic approach to yoga integrating not just the physical postures but also philosophy, meditation, pranayama breath control and the yogic personal and social code of ethics. The postural instruction is alignment focused. Sequences range from gentle restorative to dynamic vinyasa. Blocks, belts and bolsters might be used to support and modify postures safely.

Aspire seek to integrate all 8 limbs (Ashtanga) of yoga the way it was originally taught, more than 3000 years ago in India. Yoga asanas, or postures, are just one of these limbs. The other limbs are equally important, including meditation, pranayama breath control, and the personal and social code of ethics, the yamas and niyamas.

The practice of yoga is intended to be joyful and to lighten the heart and mind by calming and energising. Aspire encourage students at all levels to build flexibility, strength and stamina of body, mind and spirit. The postural instruction is alignment focused. Sequences range from gentle restorative to dynamic vinyasa. Yoga philosophies, such as ahimsa (non violence), are threaded throughout our classes. This helps bring about a deeper understanding of the key yogic values including diet and lifestyle aspirations.
