Yoga Classes and Bharatanataym Dance Workshop with Lucia


Lucia Latypova has been practicing yoga for the last 10 years, starting with Sivananda style, then moving to Ashtanga Vinyasa and later Iyengar yoga. A native from St. Petersburg, Russia, she has found her second home in Budapest, Hungary, where she’s been offering yoga classes to local and expat community for many years. Her teaching is focused on proper pose alignment and graceful flow. As a long-time Vipassana meditator, Lucia incorporates the knowledge and experience of this meditation into her own Yoga practice and shares with others how to "breath and sweat" through their own blocks and difficulties.
Apart from yoga Lucia is a full-time mother and wife, studies Turkish language and Indian classical dance-Bharatanatyam among other things.
In the Valley, Lucia will be offering daily yoga classes that would suit and challenge every level of experience and fitness.
Aside from yoga classes, Lucia will be offering a week-long workshop on Bharatanataym-a dance technique evolved in the South of India in Tamil Nadu and practiced in the temples of Shiva. The chief exponents of this dance were the Devadasis or temple dancers. They would perform the dance daily at the time of worship or on festive occasions. Today Bharatanatyam is the manifestation of the ancient idea of the celebration of the eternal universe through the celebration of the beauty of the material body.
Over a week we will learn a few key steps of this dance and a short dance devoted to Ganesh-an elephant God of beginning and the remover of obstacles.
