Intro to yoga classes I teach.
Combining Ashtanga and Hatha poses in a fluid sequence, this class concentrates on connecting breath, bandhas (energy locks) and drishti (focus) in a smooth and strengthening experience. We will be experimenting with classical yogic tools like asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation. Detoxify and invigorate your body as your personal wisdom, intuition and acceptance are deeply encouraged. All levels welcome.
Characterized by intentional breath and long-held postures that encourage "letting go", this style targets ligaments, joints and deep fascia allowing for a more comfortable seated meditation practice. Slow down and come IN with Yin.
Trauma Recovery Yoga
The T.R.Y. method exists to lower the risk of triggers for those who have experienced trauma and to help reconnect the disassociated body to the mind and spirit of the student. There is no music, no adjustments, and every instruction is merely an invitation.
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” ”
Calm your body and mind.
