Tuuri Summer Yoga

Junamajoitus, Tuuri Station, Asemakuja 1, 63610, Tuuri

Originating in India, yoga is a physical, mental and spiritual practice that creates a union of the body, mind and spirit. Yoga helps you to relax, relieve stress, and build strength and flexibility through physical postures (asanas), breathing techniques, and meditation. All classes are well suited for beginners. If you are not familiar with yoga, you will be able to participate in the exercises. Mats, straps and blocks are provided.

Hatha and Yin Yoga, Thursday 4.6.2020 to 22.8.2020, 17.30-20.30

Teacher: Kati (in Finnish)

Gentle Hatha yoga (17.30-18.45) – We do gentle, stretching and relaxing yoga exercises together. The therapeutic effects of asanas will treat and heal you holistically. Each hour is a slightly different and the asanas are guided with a gentle hold.

Meditative Yin yoga (19.15-20.30) – In this class, you let go of all the practice and move onto a more passive yoga practice. Yin is a good counterbalance to more active (yang) yoga practice or when you want to recover from stressful things in your body and mind. The asanas are held for several minutes, during which the body stops and calms down properly.

Price: 6 class pack (€60), 12 class pack (€120), drop-in (€12) (norm)/10€ (junamajoittujat)

Workshop: Yin Yoga + Treating Crystals (Stones), Sunday, 2.8.2020, 16:00-18:00

Teacher: Kati Torkko (in Finnish)

In this workshop, we will practice wonderfully relaxing and peaceful Yin yoga asanas. We will explore the chakras of the body by positioning ourselves in postures for longer periods of time, balancing the body from head to toe. In addition to the healing effect of asanas, we include crystals that heal our chakras, meaning you get a double-healing state of being from this workshop. You can borrow crystals on site – you don’t need your own crystals or knowledge of yoga or crystals. We end the exercise with yoga sleep exercise that at the same time relaxes and refreshes. This workshop is great even if you haven’t done yoga before. PS: You can also buy crystals used in the workshop from Kati!

Price: 40€
