Vinyasa Flow Yoga
I am Justine,
French yogi living in Amsterdam for the past seven years.
Yoga to me represents freedom.
Freedom to be who you really are deeply, freedom of listening to yourself,
freedom to live. As much as the Asanas are a wonderful tool, I think yoga is
much more than that. We practice Asanas to stop the fluctuations of the mind.
We do not do yoga to get fitter or stronger. This is just a nice present yoga
gives us. We do yoga to live. To live fully. I believe yoga can heal you mentally
and physically, and Pranayama and meditation are so important for us. Life can
get so busy. But even so, yoga will always be by our side, Forget the world
around us. Breath. And let go.
If I could make a definition of
yoga, it would be:
“A wonderful moving philosophy
full of love to free up your mind.”
I teach Vinyasa Flow
Yoga. My classes start by a short meditation, and the introduction of a
theme that will go through the class. After that, I make sure the students are
well connected to their breath. I use Pranayama exercices, or a simple warm up
to connect with the breath. The class goes on with a few sun salutations,
followed by (more or less) intense standing flow. The last twenty minutes are
dedicated to the floor flow, which ends with Savasana. This is the perfect time
to remind students the theme of the class, their dedication, and a great reward
for their hard work.
I choose to teach yoga to help
people elevate themselves, free themselves, or just look after themselves.
Being generous to my student, by sharing my best knowledge, without expecting
anything in return.
Yoga is a journey, not an end.
