# Virya Flow #
Explore the original grace of the body
Robin will guide you through systematical, versatile and organic sequences, designed based on a modern anatomical perspective. Every class has a specific physical theme which we explore both in stillness and in movement, helping you to embody the qualities of the inner landscape of the body.
By integrating science based techniques, we explore qualities in movement that promote joint health, functional mobility, fascial health and body intelligence.
We initiate every class with meditation, aligning body and mind through techniques that help you to shift you attention from the HEAD, into the HEART and the GUT. Robin teaches according to the Virya Yoga Method.
The Virya Yoga Method: ”Virya”, in Sanskrit, means ”enthusiasm”, ”energy”, or ”power”, and the intension with the Virya Yoga Method is to empower and energize you.
Enthusiasm comes with a delightful playfulness that will hopefully inspire you to explore the landscapes of your body and mind. The method includes the following components.
Variation: 10 modules with different themes, integrating the body as a unit.
Biomechanics: Using biomechanics principles, we discover asanas and transitions through different physical focuses.
Philosophy: Empowering themes to give perspective to and nourish our modern minds.
Empowerment: Joy and enjoyment as an important part of manifesting personal growth.
Classes will me held in English. All levels welcome.
