Roxi – Vinyasa
Roxi grew up in Canada, inspired by the natural world, and filled with the longing for the Divine. When she wasn’t back-bending out in the garden, Roxi spent hours poring over spiritual books eagerly absorbing the wisdom that she recognized there as a reflection of Highest Truth. Later, years of travel to study teachings in the Far East set her heart aflame with the fire of Zen, Tao, Yoga and more…While willing to learn from everyone, her main teachers are Shakti Mhi, Sri Dharma Mittra, and Sri Ramana Maharshi.
The flavor of Roxi’s teaching expresses the joy and curious exploration of a child, the longing and honest devotion of a sadhu, and the pure immediacy of this one moment. There is singing, prayer, silent sitting, woven deeply through with a musical and humorous philosophy of Oneness, and of Love. The Asana practice is strongly dynamic, entirely precise, and often poetic, woven through with the colours of spiritual travel, and stretching through the roots of suffering into the heart of Stillness itself.
Like an artist who cannot be classified under a certain category, Roxi explores the depths of this moment together with her students, as an organic movement which captures together the varied practices of yoga in a single revelation and a holistic understanding of who we really are.
Come. You will be happy you did.
Shai – Meditation
The practice of sitting meditation begins with taking a steady and relaxed posture conducive to tranquility and presence of mind. While experiencing the unceasing flux of mind-body phenomena, we gradually learn to let go of habitual identification that leads to grasping and aversion to our own experience and begin to access a state within which we can know, more clearly and intimately than before, the true nature of this body and mind.
In class, we base our practice on the simple and wonderful technique of mindfulness of breathing. Concentrating on the breath, the mind becomes calm and clear. With that clear mind we can than turn to the close observation of the building bricks of our experience, and eventually implement the understanding and seeing we gain in meditation in the challenging course of our day-to-day lives.
Shai has been studying and practicing Buddhist meditation and theory in Thai, Korean, Japanese and Burmese Buddhist monasteries.
Yehudit Shechter – “Prana Vinyasa” – Flowing Yoga
Asana is a means to an end, thus I do not attach myself to one title or another of any structured technique. Practice in class is conducted through ongoing flow of movement and breath, and investigating the body and its motion.
Each lesson focuses on a different topic/area (such as the pelvic area, hips, back, shoulders, lengthening of the limbs etc.). The practice is designed in a way that begins delicately and becomes more dynamic. We know that the mind-body unit consists of endless abilities and possibilities and all that is left is to remove boundaries in order to reach an intimate place of contact with one’s eternal self.
The physical and philosophical aspects are inextricably intertwined and both are referred to in the practice. When you have found yoga, the search ends and the journey begins. The road is not easy but there are many rewards.
