Kaiut Yoga, Toronto
Tuesday evening, 8:00-9:00 PM
Sunday afternoon, 1:00-2:00 PM
“Kaiut Yoga is for those of us who spend a lot of time sitting in chairs or in front of computers.”
As we bring our body-mind into presence, Kaiut Yoga helps the body to maintain or return as close to its optimal functionality as possible. The practice is mostly on the floor and involves prolonged positions, allowing time and gravity to work for us.
Kaiut Yoga also consists of subtle movements that help counteract the common biomechanical impact of aging and the habits that restrict mobility. No need to be ‘flexible’ – there is no ‘perfect pose’ expected nor possible!
Yoga mats and props will be probided.
To get the most benefit, 2 classes per week are recommended.
