Gunn is teaching the pleasant style of yoga called Vinyasa Flow, a selection of haha yoga postures accompanied by calm music, ending with guided meditation, pranayama and relaxation. This type of dynamic yoga is known to increase the blood circulation, strengthen and tone the muscles and calm the nervous system down. The combination of movement, breath focus and mind-body connection activates the para sympathetic, or calm, mode of the nervous system, allowing the body to rejuvenate and heal. The class is suitable for all levels. Participants with injuries are encouraged to inform Gunn before the yoga class.
A restorative yoga class with focus on breathing techniques, slow movements to connect with the physical body and guided meditation to turn our attention inwards. The 90 minute class is ended with a long relaxation and a mini thai yoga massage with essential oils.
