Left to its own devices, the mind operates like a monkey, jumping from branch to branch! But the good news is: yoga chitta vritti nirodha, or: yoga calms the fluctuations of the mind so we can rest in our true nature. Sometimes we have to do a lot of deep breathing and shape-making to quiet that mind chatter and become present! In this practice we play with poses right-side up and upside-down so by the time we're done the only thing you're sure of is your center. And that's all we can ever really be sure of, anyway ;) Expect lots of hamstring and hip-opening, shoulder-opening, core strengthening, monkey pose and eagle pose every which way and a little grasshopper to keep things moving :) You might want to grab a couple of blocks and a strap just in case! Enjoy, friends!
