Blissful Flow

Hatha | By Steven Espinosa on Apr 19 2012
Ananda - sanskrit for bliss or blissful. Our yoga practice allows us to reduce stress by reuniting breath, body, mind and heart back into a state of peace or bliss within. A gentle warm up leads us into a multiple Standing Pose series including Warrior 2, Extended Side Angle and Triangle. Also includes a brief tutorial on Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon). Emphasis on being at peace with where you are at within the pose and in your practice. Continues with a combination of Standing Leg Balance, Hip Opener and Thigh Stretches. Concludes with Back Bends, Supine Spinal Twists and Savasana.

    Hello Steven. This is Jennifer from Connecticut. This was my very first class with you and I am just healing from a strained back muscle. The class was just right, affording me opportunities for movement and stretching but keeping me centered and "blissful." Ananda! Many thanks! I look forward to practicing with you again!
