Amrit, Kripalu and Ashtanga Yoga
The purpose of this yoga lineage is to guide you toward cultivating a conscious connection, integration and awakening of the body, mind, heart and spirit.
You will learn and practice Patanjali's 8 limbs of yoga:
- Yama: universal ethics
- Niyama: personal observances
- Asana: physical postures
- Pranayama: breath
- Pratyahara: withdrawal of the senses
- Dharana: concentration
- Dhyana: meditation
- Samadhi: tranquility, spiritual illumination, union in one’s Divine Source
What To Expect
Work primarily with the Amrit posture sequence, gentle vinyasa flows and extended posture holding times.
Explore the deepest levels of body, mind and spirit with the integrative practices of clear intention, breath, meditative awareness and conscious integration.
Learn to balance your nervous system with the “first half” and “second half” of a posture. To transition from an active state of “doing” a posture, to a relaxed state of “being”. And to feel the effects of a posture.
Learn to consciously encounter your "edge" of body and mind to release deep tensions and restore the natural flow of the vital life force energy (prana).
Good for all levels, from those with some experience to more experienced practitioners. Some experience with yoga and postures is recommended.
- Connect on Zoom 10 minutes prior to class start time and silence cell phones
- Wear comfortable clothing, feet are bare for yoga practice
- Refrain from eating 1.5 to 2 hours before practice
- Yoga mats and props such as blocks, blankets and straps are recommended
What My Students Say
"Sylvie's yoga classes are excellent, but they go far beyond the asana postures that most yoga classes focus on. She offers deep insights into the science and philosophy of mind and you always walk away with a new perspective on whatever issues you might be going through. 10/10 highly recommended." - Jeffrey
"Sylvie is not your typical yoga teacher. She brings so much more to the table! Her depth of knowledge in the practice of yoga, breathwork, meditation, energy work and yoga philosophy, all comes into play with each session. My life has been enriched with her teachings and my day so improved after a class." - Linda
"Sylvie has shown me that there is so much more to yoga than the postures, or the physical aspect of yoga. Studying with her I have not only gotten stronger and more flexible but I have learned a great deal about yoga philosophy, the Eight Limbs of Yoga and the spiritual foundations of this practice. Her extensive studies in a number of other countries seem to be woven into each yoga class she teaches. For me personally, it’s helped to bring the spiritual principles of yoga into my everyday life.” - Liz
