Welcoming Tara Germani to The Om Space-5

 

Tara is a 500 RYT yoga teacher who has a deep curiosity about our human capacity and creative potential. Her main focus is understanding and captivating the essence of the teachings as simply as possible – where we encounter both the ease and challenges of the practice and begin to fully experience the flow of Vinyasa.

What to expect in a class – Group classes are 60 – 75 mins where we begin with pranayama and in seated meditation to establish our breath awareness, which quietly evolves into a moving meditation as I begin to introduce music. From here we flow into a warm up of various namaskars to increase awareness and heat in the body and establish the basics for the class.  For the main body component of the session I will guide us to flow through a series of asanas/postures opening up and exploring the different energy points (chakras): forward bends, back bends, twists, side opening and inversions. The general tendency is to flow through the postures for 3 – 5 breaths, which makes the sequence somewhat like a structured yet dynamic dance. It becomes a really intuitive practice once you start to experience yourself moving from your breath.
Tara will be joining our Weekend Rotation in June so don’t miss the chance to practice with her!

Kundalini

Tuesdays 8.30am with Uta

The introduction of yoga and mindfulness is the guiding thread that has spun throughout my personal history.
Formerly working, as a marketing event manager, for a bank in Germany, I know the challenges of a day packed with appointments and constant traveling, very well. Kundalini Yoga has given me the tools to stay calm and focused in the face of those challenges.
I am passionate about helping people find their true voice and live from the heart. Sharing yogic and eastern philosophies related to awakening the greatness that lies within every one’s self is part of every class. All classes combine kundalini yoga practices with astrology, attuning ourselves with universal power by aligning our whole Being with the cyclical rhythm of the Sun and Moon. The student will be guided through coordinated movements, deep breathing exercises, chants, stillness and laughter to help release what’s not working any more and step into the fullness of life with more radiance and from the heart!
I have over four years of Yoga teaching experience in Sri Lanka and additionally she holds a certificate as a Reiki Master and Teacher.
My vision for every living soul on our Mother earth is:
May you have VISION to see your POTENTIAL, and FAITH to BELIEVE that YOU can!
Then COURAGE to Act with CONVICTION, to become what YOU were MEANT to BE!
It’s not how high you build your DREAMS that makes a DIFFERENCE, but how high your FAITH can climb.
Believe in the IMPOSSIBLE which is the POSSIBLE YOU!
