Power & Alignment
Workshop with Jeremy Lim
As our good friend Jeremy Lim from Singapore is visiting Copenhagen in July, we have invited him to come share his take on a strong and healthy practice.
His take goes hand in hand with how we at the studio approach our classes, and hope through this workshop to provide our students with the chance to strengthen their everyday practice.
Power & Alignment is a hatha vinyasa yoga practice that draws from our innate strength to create a harmonious relationship with the whole being – mind, heart, breath, body, and community.
A synthesis of heart-opening yoga practices and psychological science, P&A goes beyond intelligent sequencing and yoga postural alignment and focuses on developing our well-being.
Based on a curriculum approach, P&A incorporates a set of essential components, including an embodied practice through specific key alignment principles. These components evoke a mindful and uplifting effect, guiding students towards a “work in.”
Through repeated practice, the intention is for practitioners to feel empowered to navigate modern day living with an underlying sense of peace and joy.
