SUN SALUTATIONS on Englewood Beach, Manasota Key (Beach Rd)

with Lata

Tuesday  & Thursday at 7:45am-8:15am


Yoga's sun salutations are among the most refined and effective movement meditations for health and well-being ever created. Originally practiced to connect to the sun's vitality, this precise combination of forward bends, backbends and inversions awakens the breath and promotes circulation and inner balance through the flow of prana shakti— our creative life force.  Practicing Sun Salutations in the morning is a wonderful way to awaken your body, to stretch, to say good morning to each of your muscles.  Sun Salutations give you a lot of power. It’s an energetic sequence designed to make you strong, powerful, glowing and confident.

Everyone can feel healthier, stronger and more confident by practicing yoga.


Chair Yoga is the gentlest form available yet still effective for participants in building strength, flexibility and stability. We focus on breath-work to strengthen the diaphragm, oxygenate the body, balance moods and hemispheres of the brain. We practice yoga therapy to lubricate the joints, strengthen the body, elongate torso and create a flexible spine. We finish with meditation to release tension to help deal better with discomfort and nourish the mind.


Get Fit Where You Sit Yoga is accessible for every body. Whether sitting at a desk all day, recovering from an illness or injury, noticing a loss of mobility or flexibility, or just plain tired—this is the perfect class to help you feel better and have fun!

Class Descriptions

SOUND THERAPY with Crystal Healing bowls

with Robert and Lata


Your body is in perfect health when your energy is in perfect health - it thrives in a flow of healthy energy. 

Crystal Bowl therapy/Therapeutic Yoga/meditative movement/guided imaginary, deep relaxation and breath heals on every level-physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

Through the vehicle of sound, one can transcend fear, anxiety, pain, suffering, energetic blocks and so much more. Clarity, knowledge and wisdom flow effortlessly when we are in a peaceful, composed and alert state and our body heals itself naturally.


Sound Vibration and tones from the Crystal Bowls emit a healing frequency that reverses disease and promotes soul and emotional restoration.  We may not fully understand on a rational level, but our cells understand.  When you relax and absorb the healing tones and vibrations your body tunes in the frequency, all of the cells in your body will start to resonate with this healing vibration.

The singing crystal bowls help to still the mind, allowing us to be at peace and in the awareness of our essence - in-tune with Pure Consciousness!

The crystal bowls remind us of who we truly are, not separate from the Absolute.  As we relax and listen to the singing bowls our entire brain illuminates allowing the right and left hemispheres to communicate together, new neural pathways develop.  Leaving you feeling at peace and content and fully aware and present.

The Crystal Bowls are singing gifts from Mother Earth herself, made of quartz crystal.  They are a modern version of healing tools that have been used since ancient times.  As the bowls are tapped and played their quartz crystal matrix vibrates, and this sound vibration spirals outward in an ever-widening circular path that travels to infinity.  Not only are you able to hear the tones, you can actually feel the vibrations.  They resonate with the crystalline structure of the body as well as its subtle template also known as the aura.  The bowls are tuned to our musical scale and each note correlates with different energy centers in the body.  These centers in turn correspond to different body systems, organs and endocrine glands all the way down to the cellular level. Disease is caused by "disharmony" in the body.  By allowing the pure melodious vibrations to flow through your body, you begin to harmonize and essentially become more "in tune".  This has an overall positive effect on your being.

Please bring a small towel to place on your bolster and please bring a mat.

Mats can be rented for $1 at the studio

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to class. We start promptly and then the door will be locked.

We also sell mats at the studio $20

This deeply healing flow will aid in the removal of negative energy and blocks in the flow of energy in your body and mind.

GENTLE RESTORE YOGA

 with Lata  90min


Restore yoga is a combination of restorative, yin and gentle yoga and offers the potential for deep relaxation and deliberate stillness while holding a posture with the support of a prop (blanket, bolster, block or wall). This practice will encourage physical and emotional healing and encourage connection of mind and body for a profound sense of inner peace and overall well-being. Holding the supported postures for a longer period of time will invite a deeper relaxation in the muscles and the deep connective tissues of the body where most of the tightness and tension is stored. You are guaranteed to cultivate a sense of spaciousness and levity!

Sunset is a magical time. Practicing yoga on the beach as we watch the sun set over the ocean is a truly transformative and beautiful experience. An evening yoga practice helps us to slow down, focus inward and gently transition from day to night.

What people are saying........

                           

 "Walking into Loving Light Yoga Studio Healing Center in Englewood, Florida you know you have stepped into a wonderful place that will bring both joy and well-being into your life. Lata understands how everyone is different in their practice. As she shares her practice, Lata is constantly assessing our needs and will make modifications or adjustments to help us ease into the pose. No two classes are the same. Each one is dependent upon her intended purpose and the needs of her students. But the most powerful part of the whole class is Lata’s guiding voice. Her voice is a constant reminder for me to reach the pose, breathe, and spend this special time on me."  JD-Englewood

Let your practice meet you where you are, don't push or strain.  Remember this is your practice, honor your body and don't force your body to someone else's pose. This is your personal practice, all bodies are different.  Modify when you need too, rest when you need to and challenge yourself if you are able to.

Let go of expectations, judgment or competition. Stay present moment to moment and use your most powerful tool, your breath to help you ease into a pose, surrender into sensations, relax and let go.   Move slowly and  at your own pace, notice all sensations and Breathe.

Enjoy your practice and remember, Yoga is supposed to be fun!
