ROOTING DOWN 8/12 Our emphasis will be on grounding and re-connecting with the earth using standing poses, fluid sun salutes, spiraling twists and supine and seated poses. A perfect practice to shake out the summer cobwebs, and find one's roots in yoga again in good company.
RISING UP 8/19 This session will focus on gradually opening the heart and chest area and bringing the energy up from the earth to soar in the heavens. We will use the imagery of wings and lightness to free the whole spine and explore vinyasa, balance poses and inversions, backbends passive and active, and easeful breath-work. This session will create vitality and energy, and at the same time calm and coolness in our late summer days.
FOLDING IN 8/26 For our final session we will open to flexion! and diving deep into the pelvis and hip area. This session will bring a quality of introspection to our active practice and include all aspects of the practice from standing poses to inversions to backbends to restorative, cultivating a quieting of the mind-heart in each posture and with each breath.
