Over two decades of teaching yoga, Yiwen taught thousands of students and mentored countless teachers in SF Bay Area. Her teaching, informed from years of training and experience, can best be described as methodical, disciplined, safe and sustainable. She is keen on the relationship of opposites and on the principles of anatomical alignment and movement. Yiwen is also an intuitive trained and certified in various healing modalities. In 2011, Yiwen followed her dream and built a yoga and healing center in SF Bay Area (www.prajnacenter.com). At the end of 2016, Yiwen moved to Portland.
Hatha: This class is paced slow enough for students to learn the mechanics and anatomical alignment of each yoga pose and to experience the energetics of yoga movement. Various breath controls will be taught. Suitable for students new to yoga, as well as great for yoga teachers and experienced yogis to get a refresher on technique. Aromatherapy will be offered in class on occasion.
Slow VinysaYoga: While slower in movement than Vinyasa Yoga, students will be mentally and physically challenged to create tapas (heat that burns off impurities in the body). Students will be guided to move and engage where the energy circuitry is turned on throughout the body. Breath practice is key. Suitable for all levels of students. Students are encouraged to practice in accordance to one’s pace and rest when needed. Experienced yogis will be challenged to cultivate stability in order to access subtler dimensions. Best suited for students with experience.
Vinyasa Yoga: This is a rhythmic, energetic flow of yoga sequences based on a garland of asanas (poses) designed for individuals looking to further increase strength and flexibility, as well as to improve breath control. With dedicated regular practice, one will feel energized, stronger and more limber. The format of a typical class consists of the following: warm up, strength/cardio, stretch, twist and finishing. Expect heat and sweat!
