Yoga bring´s change and transformation. It´s a challenge that gives knowledge, strenght and conquest of the body. It´s like a new Life that is starting...
The class will start with the standing ásanas that brings consciousness of the body and lets us create roots in the earth.
Then, the emphazis is in backbendings that open the chest and the heart. It will make you fell more open and receptive to emotions and experiences. It will inspire us for freedom and expansiveness. After and finally the body will cool down with neutralising ásanas.
