Yoga with Nicola Micallef
Get your morning moving in a class with the ŻfinMalta company dancers and one of our expert guest teachers. Once a month for a week or more, local and international professional dance artists are invited to join the company’s morning practice. Techniques explored are ballet, contemporary, and somatic practice. Classes are suitable for young dancers and established practitioners alike. ŻfinMalta provides an open and inclusive space where participants can further develop their professional practice, make connections, and experience life inside Malta’s National Dance Company.
“A lively dance of awakening supported by mindfulness meditation and breath awareness”
Nicola’s yoga classes are a blend of active and receptive Vinyasa yoga practice with a focus on alignment. This form of Hatha yoga cultivates strength and flexibility. The aim of this week’s yoga practice is to establish a profound mind-body connection, stretching and strengthening the body, in a calm and supportive manner. With the occasional use of essential oils, we may enhance our attention to our breath, stimulating a deeper sensory experience as we move. You are invited to apply clarity, relax into openness, and be inspired through a creative flow, to access a deeper connection to our mental and physical structure.
