JOY & Happiness // A not so serious yoga class @Saga YOGA MARCH 30

SMILE! TRY SOMETHING NEW AND IF YOU FALL, FIX YOUR PONYTAIL AND TRY AGAIN! :)

Yoga does NOT have to be serious and neither does your practice.

Yoga entails several acrobatic poses that can come off as scary, challenging and hard to approach. In this workshop we will explore the world of arm balances in a safe yet FUN way and learn ways to build strength to finally float into various arm balancing poses. Please note that you need NO previous skill level nor experience with arm balances to be able to attend this workshop. Beginners are absolutely welcomed with open arms. We will approach the poses with beginners eyes, big smiles and most importantly have fun while doing it. This workshop is all about finding the JOY and HAPPINESS of practicing.

What to expect?
A killer playlist, a fun flowy sequence and a workshop around various arm balances such as: Crow pose, Side Crow, Eka Pada Koundinyasana, Elephant's Trunk Pose and Peacock to name a few.
I mean heck, maybe you'll even learn a new party trick while training to become a ninja!

I AM A WARRIOR - THE POWER OF MUDRAS, MANTRAS AND YOUR MIND @PRANAMAKALLIO, MARCh 16

Hell yes you are! A WARRIOR that is!

The power of mantras, mudras and your mind is the BOMB and in this workshop we will learn how to use these tools so that we can fully become Warriors.

What is a mantra?
A mantra is an affirmation. A positive reinforcement that is helping you become more positive, motivated or inspired. Basically it is a tool that you continuously use to repeat a certain thing for self-improvement.

What is a mudra?
Each area of the hand has a reflex reaction in a specific part of the brain. A Mudra locks and guides energy flow and reflexes to the brain.

And my mind?
We will work on that too, lol :D

What to expect
A beautiful Vinyasa session with many mudras, affirmations and tools on becoming a kick ass Warrior!

Energy exchange: Pay what you can, sliding scale of 15-25 euros
Pranama Kallio, Kolmas Linja 28

Chakra Tune Up + Bär Bar Smoothie, @Pranama Kallio, feb 16

Join me in this special class on the 16th of February where you'll have your chakras read, move thru a Yin & Yang Sequence and enjoy a delicious smoothie from Bär Bar afterwards. Sound too good to be true? It's not and you should definitely come!

CHAKRA TUNE UP
Even though the body appears to be a material object, in reality it’s a field of energy. There are 7 main energy centres of your body, known as chakras (Sanskrit for wheel of energy). Your chakras are vital for your overall wellbeing and each chakra is connected to different areas of your life and physical body. In this special class we will journey through the Chakra system and learn more about each chakra and work towards balancing them. The class will start with Eva testing each students chakras with a pendulum (please bring a piece of paper or a sticky note numbered 1-7 to quicken the process) which after there'll be a 90 minute Yin & Yang flow sequenced around all the chakras.

Say what?
Eva will use a pendulum as a dowser to see whether the participants chakra is open/closed/blocked or has excess energy. The information will not be shared with the rest of the class, but written on a piece of paper (please bring a piece of paper or a sticky note).

Yin & Yang
We'll move thru a Vinyasa and Yin inspired sequence based around the seven chakras with poses stabilizing and harmonizing each chakra. What to expect: hip openers, abs, balance poses, flow, so pretty much everything you can squeeze into a 90min class. Think roots to rise.

And then there's even smoothies afterwards?
Sure thing! My good homies from Bär Bar are gifting us with their super yummy and healthy smoothies made of Finnish berries to enjoy post yoga. The smoothie contains lots of vitamins and antioxidants and is for these aspects extremely grounding (1st Chakra hello!!)

What if I'm a yoga virgin?
No problemo amigo! This class is suitable for all levels and no previous yoga experience is required.

What else?
The class will be held in English.

How much?
This is a pay what you can - workshop, our recommendation price and a balanced energy exchange would be around 15/20€.

Book to secure your spot by sending me an email eva.estlander@gmail.com or by clicking the following link (link will be added today Jan 16th). Drop ins are welcomed, but might not fit in as this has been a popular workshop in the past! Space is limited.
