The Yoga Bunch offers group and private classes for every individual - regardless of age, size, gender, diet and lifestyle, at different locations, including your home.
CristinaChandikayoga Cristina's signature feel & flow vinyasas are in tune with the seasons and moon cycles - a slow flow that integrates breath, alignment, mudra, mantra, deep relaxation, pranayama and meditation.
Restorative yoga A gentle and slow meditative practice using props ( blankets, bolsters, foams, etc.) to help you feel completly supported and relaxed in every asana, allowing deep release in the body and mind. This practice is recommended for those who are healing from an injury, surgery, illness or just need to restore and relax. Prana healing, reiki and crystal healing might be used during private classes.
Adult and child A fun, non competitive physical activity, with many postures that are named after animals and other creatures. Breathing exercises and deep relaxation are also included, leaving both parent and child feeling peaceful, balanced and positive. With children living in a 'hurry up' world, with school pressures and other modern influences, these classes are the perfect counter balance to these pressures, whilst instilling the foundations for future generations.
Pregnancy yoga A gentle and slow practice focusing on open stretches, proper breathing and deep relaxation, preparing mothers-to-be, feel calm, strong and in control physically as well as mentally. Early pregnancy is a very good time to start, from as early as fourteen weeks, provided your midwife or doctor agrees. Private classes only.
Pranayama Breath is life. Breathing exercises to recharge your body and control your mental state by regulating the flow of prana.
Meditation This practice takes you to a state of awareness of your true being, a state of complete and spontaneous relaxation, innocence and bliss. It helps to remove negative thoughts and diminishes fear and lonelinness. Different techniques and tools are used to suit the individual or group needs.
Mindfulness The ability to see what's going on in our minds, bodies and the world around us, and to respond from a place of clarity and compassion, not fear, insecurity and greed. As we become more accepting of our own thoughts, we become more emphatetic to others. Mindfulness is a proven stress buster, as it help us understand what we can and can't change. Stress isn't caused by what's happening, but our response to it.
Alchemy crystal singing bowls sound healingSound healing has been utilised in various cultures for thousands of years, as a tool for healing - to move us from a place of imbalance to a place of balance. Sound helps to facilitate shifts in our brainwave state by using entrainment. By using rhythm and frequency we can entrain our brainwaves until it becomes possible to down shift our beta satate (waking state) to alpha state (relaxed consciousness) and even reach theta state (meditative state) and delta state (sleep state). Alchemy crystal singing bowls are capable of producing multiple harmonics when struck and release sine waves that radiate and continue to a distance of 1km or more from the bowl. Sine waves resonate with our brainwave's alpha state and in this relaxed state, we are receptive to self-healing and cellular repair acceleration. Alchemy crystal singing bowls have been infused with gemstones, crystal and minerals and emit healing vibrational properties that correspond to the chakras, energy bodies, dnas, organs and cells. These sound healing sessions can provide results for a variety of issues, including sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, stress management, pain management, fertility issues, ibs, me and ptsd, etc.
