Sitting Still: Hip Openers, Pranayama and Meditation Take time to breathe and reflect as you open your body with these powerful poses. Soften the stiff places and strengthen the weak ones to find greater equanimity. In a time when life moves at such a rapid pace, nothing is more balancing than simply being still.
Calm Vitality: Backbends
Go to the edge and maintain your center. Backbends are unsurpassed for raising our vibration physically and mentally. Learn about your spine and how to skillfully bend in all the right places to increase your stamina and inner strength.
Strength and Clarity: Forward Bends and Twists
Make a date with your hamstrings for this class and learn that core strength applies to all of the poses. We will practice standing poses and seated forward bends along with many variations of twists. (Ahimsa, Satya, Brahmacharya)
Come To the Edge: Advanced Practice: Backbends and Arm Balances
This class is for strong experienced practitioners only who want to experiment with gravity. If you have any injuries, this class will not be appropriate. You will play at the edge of backbends and arm balances and challenge yourself in new ways. (Sauce, Ishwara Pranidhana)
