Vinyasa style yoga combines a series of flowing postures with rhythmic breathing for an intense body-mind workout. Vinyasa, which means breathing and movement, is for internal cleansing. Each movement is accompanied by one breath. The vinyasa practice flows through warm ups, salutations, standing series, seated asana, inversions, and there's always time for ample restorative sivasana (final relaxation). The class is appropriate for ALL ranges of yoga experience.

Recognizing the role of the energy centers in our body is an essential part of our yogic journey. The seven chakras found along our spinal cord and up into our skull are an integral part of the healthy functions of our body. If those energy centers (like filters) get "gummed up" with unnecessary energetic residue from the inevitable stresses of life experience, a feeling of dis-ease and often physical manifestations ensue over time. This monthly exploration into the chakras, in collaboration with Jessie McAllister will be filled with asana, pranayama, mantra and purposeful energy clearing. Our intention will be to find connection to our chakras and our role in clearing and balancing them for optimum health. 9SIX WEEK SERIES THIS SPRING, MONDAY PMS, DATES TBA)
Join me for 60 minutes of focused attention on your feet. We could all give our feet a little more attention and love. The truth is, our feet provide us with our very foundation. If our feet are not happy, the rest of us won't be happy. We will spend the bulk of the time learning foot strengthening exercises, important acupressure points, and how we can engage our feet more completely in our yoga practice. Too often we ignore our feet and the discomfort we feel there. Let's start from the ground up, beginning with our very foundation, and focus some well deserved attention to our feet. UPCOMING DATES TBA
