To keep the body in good health is a duty…otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear – BuddhaYoga & Meditation practices date back to 300 B.C. and various traditions are found in both Buddhist and Hindu traditions. We believe the goals of Yoga and Meditation practices are self-realization and keeping oneself balanced and healthy on a daily basis. Health is your greatest wealth. The body’s DNA knows how to heal itself; all it needs is the energy. The energizing, rejuvenating Yoga & Mediation practices can be the source of this energy.
Yoga Instructors Navutu Dreams
Nina’s extensive training in yoga began in Ukraine 15 years ago. She studied the foundational practices of Hatha, Sivananda, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Yin, and Restorative yoga. She also studied Qi Gong and Wing Chun.
Her passion lies in helping people heal themselves by tapping into the energies already within us all. She shares her extensive knowledge in self-care practices, and her natural ability to hear and heal the body makes her an effective meditation and yoga teacher.
You will experience a unique combination between deep stretching and building up the “core power” during her class. You will feel energy coursing through your body from your toes to your fingertips to the crown of your head. Your natural endorphins and dopamine will reset your body and bring in a fresh feeling of well-being. You will feel a boost in your inner energy and relief from stress and anxiety.
Marina has a 200-hour certification in Ashtanga Yoga. She responded to her calling to be a yoga teacher by traveling to Mysore, India, in 2017, where she fell in love with the practice.
Shortly after returning to Cambodia, she went back in 2018 to continue her practice. She has since been passionate about sharing her knowledge of healing through yoga and spends her time dutifully holding yoga classes in Siem Reap.
She enjoys spending time with her children, singing with them, and engaging them in conversations about life. She also loves cycling around and walking in nature with friends. If she’s not up and about, you will find her in her garden, nurturing her plants and growing beauty around her.
She has honed her ability to understand one’s body and mind through constant private practice, meditation, and tuning in to herself.
“Yoga saved my life after I discovered it ten years ago. I used to be very sick, but I am as healthy as possible after practicing it every day. In 2017 and 2018, I traveled to India to get a teacher training certificate into Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in Mysore City to come back home and share my passion for yoga with others.”
Rich first discovered Kirtan in Bali 8 years ago, after quitting his job and leaving the US at the age of 32. Hearing people sing and chant together brought him joy and ecstasy and has unlocked emotions waiting to be released. His meditation practice was born out of this experience and the yearning for the unconditional love that he knew existed.
“The act of singing and chanting is how I started my meditation practice, as it was difficult for me to sit in quiet meditation. This practice uses and gives us mantras for our minds to focus on. My teachers say, ‘By chanting the names of the divine, it reminds us of our inner divinity.’ I hold workshops because I’ve gone on a deep personal healing journey the last eight years with many different practices such as yoga, meditation, chanting/signing, etc., and I know there is a great need in the world right now for connection and healing. “When you start to heal yourself, you start to heal the world around you,” and I noticed and seen how my relationships have changed in doing this “work.” It can be challenging work, as it takes the receiver on a journey of looking within as it’s uncomfortable, difficult, and painful at times. Overall, I want to connect with people. With all of these practices, my aim is that we all be more compassionate, communicative, understanding, vulnerable, honest, empathetic, trusting, and loving to each other.”
His daily practice includes ecstatic dance, meditating and chanting, creative writing, and reading. He rides, walks, and hikes around the temples regularly. Photography allows him to slow down, recognize, and capture beauty, and he shares this experience with almost 500 people through the photo club he founded.
At Navutu Dreams, you have the opportunity to learn humble practices of Ashtanga, Hatha, Vinyasa, Sivananda, Yin, Restorative, Hatha and Meditation & Gentle Flow classes. Daily Classes are available.
Hatha Flow Yoga
Hatha Yoga is the foundation of all other styles of yoga. It is translated as Ha meaning “sun” and Tha meaning “moon,” bringing together and balancing the sun and moon properties within each of us (masculine and feminine). “Hatha” can also translate as “willfull”. Therefore the practice cultivates strength, flexibility and a focused mind. This class focuses on alignment for the different body types, as well as balancing effort and relaxation. And by bringing awareness to the breath, we create mindfulness in each pose. This class is perfect for beginners yet still challenging enough for those who already have an established practice.
Vinyasa Flow Yoga
In vinyasa yoga, movement is synchronised with the breath. This style is sometimes also called flow yoga, because of the fluid way that the poses flow from one to another like a dance. The breath is a vital component in the practice because movement from one pose to the next is initiated by an inhale or an exhale. Vinyasa is literally translated from Sanskrit to mean “connection” , as in connecting our movement with the breath, or it can also be translated as “to place in a special way.” The term vinyasa also refers to a specific series of movements that are frequently done between each pose in a series.
The traditional Ashtanga practice follows a set series of poses that intensely challenge the body and mind. Through the use of focused breath and a dedication to the dynamic physical practice, one can achieve a level of mastery over body and mind. Created by Sri. T Krishnamacharya, devotees of this practice look toward Mysore, India to fully develop their skills and train with the masters. Teachers can be found worldwide and bring this distinct style to those looking for a structured, strong practice.
Restorative is a very slow-paced practice that focuses on balancing and nourishing the nervous system and relaxation responses of the body. The class is built around several reclining and prone poses that heavily rely on the use of props and pillows to completely support the body. These poses are then sustained for several minutes as the body and nervous system are able to deeply rest and recover. Restorative Yoga is a particularly beneficial practice when dealing with stress, injuries or a restless mind, and is accessible to all levels and body types.
Join the community with this free class for all locals that brings together Khmer, foreign residents and travelers. Each class may differ in style, but is always available to all levels and body types. These classes are a great way to experience the benefits of yoga while enjoying this diverse community that Siem Reap has to offer.
Unlike more dynamic versions of yoga the emphasis in Sivananda Yoga is on finding correct alignment in each pose, stability in the breath and silence in the mind. The class begins with a relaxation, followed by breathing exercises and a sequence where poses will be held from anywhere between 30-90 seconds, allowing you to really feel present, with plenty of relaxation poses throughout. This is yoga as it is taught in India.
Yin Yoga is a very modern form of yoga where we target the connective tissues between the muscles and the bones, as opposed to the muscles themselves. In Yin we learn to connect with our breath, observe our bodies and by releasing our muscles instead of engaging them we allow gravity to take us deeper into the pose, often with the support of cushions and props. It is both engaging and relaxing and will leave you feeling calm, open and peaceful.
Yoga & Meditation
This class offers you a mindful and nourishing way to begin your week. We combine the benefits of a traditional yoga class and mindfulness meditation: Improving strength, balance and range of motion, as well as cultivating a focused and peaceful mind. During this practice you will also be invited to set an intention / affirmation, supporting you in your plans for the days to come. The class is suitable for all levels and body types, therefore no previous experience is required.
Every other Saturday, you get the opportunity to join our 2 hours Workshop, where local and international teachers guide you through a specially designed class, exploring a specific style or aspect of Yoga more in-depth.
