Yoga Style: Vinyasa Flow & Dynamic Hatha based on Ashtanga
Dynamic Hatha Yoga based and influenced on Ashtanga is a vigorous, dynamic form of yoga and it would benefit those seeking strength, flexibility, a clear mind, and an energy boost. This system of breath synchronized with movement (Vinyasa) combines Victorious Breath (Ujjaji Breath) with a set broad range of postures all linked together in a continuous flow- most postures are held for five breaths before moving on. It also uses the energy locks (bandhas) and the eye gazing points (dristis) to focus the mind in a meditative way during the practice.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga is a dynamic flow of yoga marrying movement with breath. Vinyasa Flow – gives a lot more scope for variation and playfulness, it can be very intense and challenging, building heat and getting sweaty, or it can be more of a slower peaceful flow. Either way it is practiced – it has a strong meditative quality.
Morning Yoga 8:00 – 9:30 am

Yoga Zanzibar Retreat Dates:
The Yoga Retreats are available throughout the year and you can book at anytime which suits you best. There is no specific starting or ending dates. Yoga groups are small which allows for personal attention and adjustments.
The yoga retreat is suitable for all levels from beginners to intermediate and advanced. I break down the postures in different stages and adapt and give variations accordingly.
