After years of having a physically and mentally demanding job and study, Sieske found it was time to start taking better care of her body and mind. Although she started of having a love and hate relationship with yoga, the love became increasingly stronger over the years. It led her to Dharamkot, India, where she became an International Yoga Alliance registered yoga teacher.
Sieske believes we can make the world a more harmonious place through self-care and being compassionate for all sentient beings; Yoga is one of the many ways of doing so. She is schooled in traditional Hatha yoga and the classes are focused on flowing movements, right alignment to get the most out of the postures, breathing and practical -non-floaty- meditation.
Hatha Flow is a style of yoga, which encourages you to open in to the asanas, or poses, by connecting with the breath, releasing tension and moving deliberately. I use sequences in which you will flow from one pose to the other, speeding up the heart rate, but still keeping in check the alignment of the body and breath. Often we will hold asanas for a few long breaths, making it challenging for the body and mind by staying focussed. We will always end the class with some relaxation and breathing exercises, or Pranayama. This is a class suitable for beginners, intermediates and advanced practitioners.
