“Vinyasa” means “a methodical progression from one point to another”, and when we say “vinyasa flow” we are describing the union of breath and movement from one pose to another. Our flow classes are sweaty, focused and fun. The emphasis on breath brings you into your body and connects you to something that’s happening in the present moment--your inhales and exhales, and all the other sensations that arise as you move and build heat, open, strengthen and stretch. Sensations don’t happen in the past or the future, they happen now. Welcome to your body!
For days when you need self care and nurturing more than a butt-whooper. Series C leads us into really deep hip and hamstring opening, lots of long holds and deep breathing, and forward folds to calm the nervous system. Two blocks might be helpful but aren't necessary. Think lizard, frog and pigeon pose and lots of love for your hamstrings too.
Get your body moving in this Fly Strong Flow! We twist, fire up the core, play on our hands and stretch. Sun salutations create heat, & we work with fallen triangle as a transitional pose. Dolphin plank creates abdominal strength and half chair pose helps to cultivate balance. A good dose of backbends opens the heart and strengthens the back. Deep hip opening and forward folds finish up the practice. Enjoy Yogis!
Lots of heat-building with Series A, C (with variations to open the hips and shoulders), and B, to continue the hip-focus. Arm balances and core work and inversions, oh my! A little fun with handstand jumps (if you don’t have a bolster, a firm couch pillow should do the trick!) Let’s play!
In this well-rounded class we focus on open hip poses, and then finding our twisting poses and counter-twists to balance the body and mind. Of course we play with arm balances and inversions to challenge ourselves and change perspective... All you need to do is show up with an open mind and be ready for anything!
As seasons change we can feel residual stagnation from the season before. In this class integrate movement and breath to flow with the change of season with ease and fluidity. Build heat to remove emotional stagnation from your hips and build confidence to fly!
Find your inner peaceful warrior by staying focused on the breath through a fiery series of standing poses that will strengthen your focus, along with your legs and glutes, and open up your hips, as well! Peace out, warrior.
Rolling through the normal ups and downs of life with more ease, strength and grace is what we're after, yes? Practice the reality that you are not in control of most things (including this sequence, haha), but stay strong and centered anyway, as we open the hips, shoulders and hamstrings, fire up the core, get on our hands, and play upside down!
This class was designed to help you detox and transition into a new season. Oftentimes, spring is associated with spring cleaning and it's not only a great time to clean out that closet but also a good time to clear away all the debris we have been carrying in our bodies through the winter months. You might feel congested and tired during this shift so we will focus on opening up the upper back, hips and shoulders, preparing you for a beautiful standing balance, Bird of Paradise and inversion, Pincha Mayurasana. Enjoy!
