Spynga, the yoga and cycling philosophy is about living authentically. We are a community-oriented bunch with a platform for all who are intrigued and interested to explore and remember the deeper aspects of the self through the thrilling art of indoor cycling (a.k.a. spinning) and the ancient practice of yoga and thus live a more balanced, healthy and enriched transparent existence.
Carina, the owner of spyngaFlows taught our Spynga Yin class. It was a 75 minute workout made up of 30 minutes of spinning and 45 minutes of yin yoga. The spin portion was quite a ride. We climbed hills, rode the open road and accomplished some jumps. The music took me back in time and gave me something to think about other than my tired legs. The class was challenging yet doable. Carina rocked as an instructor by being encouraging, knowledgeable and by providing a great workout. By the time the spin class was over, we were more than ready to move to the Yin part of class.
Yin yoga is taking poses and really grounding down into them. Taking time to stretch and lengthen. You hold the stretch or pose much longer than traditional power yoga classes. Doing this gave me time to really feel what my body was telling me and gave me time to focus on a particular spot. The class ended with light stretches and a quick aromatherapy neck and shoulder rub from the instructor. I must say, this was such a special way to end a beautiful class. I felt worked out, stretched out and cared for all at the same time. Thank you to spyngaFlows and Carina for an awesome way to start our day!
After class, Carina was headed to Nestle headquarters to give a meditation class to employees. Please consider this for your business. Well employees make for a happy place of business!
