Beatrice believes that a consistent yoga practice allow us to create and nurture a connection within others and ourselves. She also believes that yoga can help build strong bodies, gain flexibility of the mind and body, may help conquer fears, and avoid injury, among many other benefits. Yoga brings people back to their natural state, one of true happiness and joy, and contributes to making our world a better place.
She humbly bows in gratitude to her teachers: Rich Logan, Kino Macgregor, Tias and Surya Little, Mollie Galbraith, Hillary Wright, Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Richard Miller, Sharon Gannon, David Life, and David Swenson.
Beatrice Buenaventura instructs the following:
POWER :: Yoga for Strength
Strength emanates from the core outwards. Build heat, stamina and strengthen your core muscles so you can flow with grace and ease in your yoga practice. Be prepared to generate heat with longer holds, to work and sweat in this power session.
EXPECT a great cardiovascular and strength building workout combined with breath work.
HATHA :: Advanced
This class offers opportunities to explore inversions, arm balances and backbends while building strength, balance, and flexibility.
Since this class involves a strength work and a faster pace, its best if you are already comfortable practicing balancing poses and have an intermediate level of fitness.
YOGA :: Healthy Backs
This class is designed to specifically support and care for the back in a safe and fun sequence of poses. We will focus on relieving muscle tension, increasing flexibility and strengthening all our supporting muscles. Relaxation techniques will be used to help reduce stress and chronic pain.
