1 on 1 yoga practice with Miles Maeda (45min)
Message for 1 on 1 practice students from Miles
Gyrokinesis is an integrated movement system suitable for various body types, mobility levels, and movement experience. It works gently on the joints, especially the spine, which supports back, hip, and shoulder issues. It tones the internal organs and encourages heathy flow of energy though the body.
What Miles keeps in mind when she leads 1 on 1 yoga practice
In our sessions, together we create the space to learn, heal, and grow through breath, movement, and awareness. By starting with easeful, gentle spinal movements, we create the opportunity for centeredness, openness, and relaxation. In this space, we can feel deeply supported and abide in a real sense of wholeness and peace.
