Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are asanas (postures designed to increase strength and flexibility) and pranayama (breathing). The practice originated in India about 5,000 years ago .
Lexie trained with Diazab Juilian Skinner the first eglishman to become a Zen Master in the strict Rinzi tradtion.
Zen yoga refers to a variety of physical and energetic practices that can be found within the Zen Buddhist tradition.
Zen Yoga was developed to increasing a person’s ability to sit in mediation for prolonged periods of time. Whilst this not a regular practice in the west Zen Yoga can help increase your awareness of the body and provide relief and movement to life styles of working behind a desk for prolonged periods.
Zen Yoga particular, emphasises three intertwined areas – physical alignment, the flow of energy in the body and awareness or mindfulness.
Lessons are based on a hatha style of yoga incorporating Zen practice. Lexie is also a qualified Yin Yoga teacher. For those of your looking for a more dynamic practice Lexie also teaches Vinasasna flow, Ashtanga Yoga and Rocket Yoga.
