Sirena Yoga movement is a method that gently works the entire body, opening energy pathways, stimulating the nervous system, increasing range of motion, and creating functional strength through rhythmic, flowing movement sequences. The method is practiced in group or private classes under the instruction of a certified Sirena Yoga Trainer, and can also be practiced at home with a mat and chair.
Sirena Yoga classes are 60-90 minutes long. Each class begins on a chair with a gentle warm up sequence. This is followed by a series of fluid spinal motions which increase range of motion, and prepare the body to explore more complex movements with agility, and ease. Class continues on the floor with exercises that expand on the spinal motions, gradually adding more complex sequences, incorporating more movements of the hips, shoulders, hands and feet. The floor exercises are followed by a Standing Meditation or Seated Breathwork that incorporates balance, designed to prepare the body and mind to reintegrate with the every day world.
Sirena Yoga classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. The Sirena Yoga method is practiced by people from all walks of life, including accomplished athletes and dancers, college students, baby boomers, senior citizens, and people living with disabilities.
