The Continuum presents “Yoga Rocks” with Eric Paskel
Acclaimed international yoga instructor introduces a wholistic rejuvenation of the mind, body and spirit for residents in Miami Beach.
Continuum, South Florida’s premier resort-style oceanfront condominium residences in Miami Beach, introduces “Yoga Rocks,” a four-day series of workshops presented by Eric Paskel, one of the world’s leading international yoga teachers, taking place at The Continuum Sporting Club and Spa, February 22–25.
Yoga Rocks has been designed for individuals to reimagine their outlook on yoga through the creation of four guiding principles and Eric’s own themes for each session. The introduction of this four-day series of workshops being held by Eric at the Continuum is considered the first of its kind for a private residential condominium property.
The most unique characteristic of Eric’s classes is the personalized approach given to each individual, whether a newer student or more experienced enthusiast, regardless of age or shape, to ensure each person feels special and observed. Every yoga class includes sun salutations, lunges, twists, side bends, backbends, forward bends, weight barring and seated postures—guided by the following themes that will be a focus and interwoven throughout each 75-minute session.
“We’re delighted to welcome such a renowned talent in the field of yoga to the Continuum Sporting Club and Spa,” says Rishi Idnani, Managing Director at Continuum. “Health and fitness have been a major focus for our residents over the last 24 months, and Eric’s expert contribution to the community’s overall wellness, for the body and mind, will prove extremely valuable and well-received. We look forward to experiencing his insightful teachings.”
Day One – Whole Body Flow: This class focuses on the complete posture, from toes to temples, ensuring lots of movement and lots of sweat—acting as a one-stop-shop for the body.
Day Two – Balance: Balancing poses aren’t about a steady body. Ultimately, they are about a steady mind, as the focus is given on an array of balancing postures that calibrate the mind.
Day Three – Upper Body Party: This class focuses on the basic postures and movements that build upper body power and tone. Eric explores arm balances and lots more with drills that help build strength and awareness.
Day Four – Surprise: The surprise is about going with the flow, not needing to “know” and trusting yourself enough to feel safe and confident when you haven’t a clue what you’ve got yourself into.
Eric will also be giving a Relationship Lecture on Love as being in harmony with anyone and everyone. Residents will join Eric for a journey into relationships like they’ve never experienced.
