    Set Your Sun Dial

    By Kate Duyn on Sep 7, 2022

    Vinyasa Flow Advanced

    This practice is all about the relationship you're having with light! Do you open up to the light? Invite it in? Seek it out? Foster it inside yourself?Or are you repelling light in any way, consciously or unconsciously? This practice peaks with compass pose, Surya Yantrasana - a pose that turns your body into a compass or sun dial so you set yourself up to receive the light when it's offered to you, cultivate it inside yourself, and offer it up to the world around you! Pretty sweet, huh? Grab two blocks and a strap and let's get our compasses calibrated, yogis!

    By Kate Duyn on Jul 15, 2022

    This practice is all about unshakable faith...a great way to bolster your self-esteem, confidence and faith that you can get through anything. The story of Hanuman building a bridge across the seas (thus the pose) to help Rama and free Sita is weaved into a class that combines the Vajrapradama Mudra (thunderbolt mudra) of powerfully focused energy to remove doubt with deep opening and creative sequencing. Enjoy, yogis! 2 blocks for Ganda bherundasana may be helpful.
