Synergy Vinyasa is a holistic practice based on the Hatha Yoga tradition and the Synergy method developed by Simon Borg Olivier. Deeply rooted in the essence of yogic philosophy, it aims to cultivate sensitivity, inner strength, openness and acceptance. Drawing from the scientific understanding of human physiology, it is a safe and progressive practice adapted to the needs of the modern body.
The key elements in this method include restoring spinal fluidity, improving blood flow, calming the nervous system and entering the flow state.
Since the beginning of the pandemic I started to teach online classes for groups and also individuals. After some time I begin to see a lot of value in those practices. It helps us create a little yogic Shala in our apartment. We become more accustomed to practice at your own home.
Workshops are a great way to break down certain concepts, postures or themes. A standard yoga class follows a typical structure whereas a workshop has the luxury to go DEEP into a specific topic such as arm balances, backbends, etc.
Prenatal & Postnatal Yoga
Special emphasis is given to breathing techniques directed to expand a woman’s breathing capacity in gentle and effective ways that can be useful during preparation for labor, birthing her baby and the postnatal period to promote physical and emotional wellbeing. An important focus is also given to pelvic area awareness, promoting elasticity and stability.
I couldn't recommend a retreat more if I tried! Malva was so easygoing and fun to be around and I learnt so much about yoga in just a few short days. Such good value for money and the range of activities we did made the experience so interesting. Can't wait to join another retreat one day!
