Archer's arms in warrior postures help us to find our balance, sharpen our focus, get really clear about what we want and grounded in our purpose. These elements are reinforced through the peak poses we explore like Kapinjalasana (dew drop drinking bird), Shiva Naturajasana, an adventurous variation of Ustrasana, and reclining Virasana. Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

Sacred Energy Arts Flow Classes are the culmination and evolution of over 30 years of Matthew’s extensive training in all of his practices and teachings. With similarities to a more traditional yoga flow class, you will discover the grace and power of the ancient martial arts practices; the balance, flexibility, and peace of Hatha yoga and the increased energy and awareness of the beautiful qigong (energy cultivation) exercises. Seamlessly moving from one discipline and expression to the next, these classes are the hallmark of Sacred Energy Arts.
This is a well-rounded vinyasa practice that will guide you through a gentle warm up, a heat building flow sequence and a relaxing cool down. In each asana see if you can soften the struggle - whether it be physical, emotional or mental. Meet any intense sensation, emotion or negative thought pattern with the breath and with a positive intention. See what naturally begins to shift, strengthen or release on its own. Enjoy!
