Explore inner space and physical space, encountering emotions, thoughts, and sensations. Express what you discover. EVOLve through self knowledge into mental spaces of light and love.
Yoga with Anastasia is an opportunity to flow through layers of mental, physical, and subtle energy bodies and practice svadhyaya, the study of the self. Thoughts and thought patterns come from our physical nature and cultural nurture. Become more aware that your identity is a collection of ideas, habits, and stories that you have inherited and created.
EVOL yoga, Anastasia’s signature offering, is asana practice that blends hatha and restorative postures with gentle vinyasa flow sequences. Language prompts encourage mindful engagement of thoughts (“Let’s set an intention. Let’s start a conversation. What do I intend to achieve with today’s practice?”). Layers of creative visualization (“As you lay in savasana, envision roots shooting out of the places where you feel your body connected to the floor, Earth”) and guided meditation (“Imagine yourself floating to a safe space…”) encourage deep connection and exploration of your inner space. The whole experience moves you toward love and light through self knowledge.
Additionally, Anastasia practices homa, the Vedic fire ceremony. It is a ritual for peace that includes chanting and meditation with the light of the fire. Homa is a subtle energetic cleansing; it removes pollutants in the body and mind.
Anastasia did teacher training at Mudita Yoga Lab in Kingston, New York. She has also studied ayurveda and yoga in Kerala, India.
Yoga with Anastasia is offered for individuals/very small groups at her private space in Kingston, NY.
