Take your yoga to the next level in this Hatha Yoga class that blends the alignment principals of Iyengar Yoga with the mindfulness & energy work of Kripalu.
You’ll learn and refine yoga postures that build strength, flexibility & balance; and engage in more advanced pranayama (breathing practices) that calm/focus your mind & infuse your body with lifeforce (prana). Warm up and stretch away tension. Move through Sun Salutations/ other posture flows to boost stamina and immunity. Hold poses to generate heat, tone and detoxify.
You'll be encouraged to challenge yourself and also honor your body's limitations, modifying poses as needed to gain the greatest benefit from your practice. You’ll be invited to breathe, relax, go inside & feel, explore, watch, allow…and open to new possibilities for health, wholeness, personal discovery, inspiration & transformation. Each class ends with a brief relaxation/meditation for integrating body, mind & spirit.
