A balanced practice with dynamic movements, longer held postures, physical alignment, pauses between poses, work with the breath, and meditation. These aspects of practice are used to prepare body and mind, to find ease while building strength and stamina, to affect energy and increase the capacity for concentration as well as to create depth and meaning. The class includes mindful vinyasa, but whether to flow or not to flow will often be up to you. Inspired by the motto “elevate your practice, elevate your life” this class invites self-reflection, exquisite attention, and slowing down. Posture variations and modifications are offered to honor individual requirements, and the use of props is encouraged. Some yoga experience is recommended.
