Refine Your Yoga Practice in the New Year

Vinyasa Flow | By Dice Iida-Klein on Jan 04 2011
The New Year always brings new resolutions, but most likely your new resolutions are goals or ideas REFINED from the year before. This class is geared towards REFINING and retouching the practice, getting back to the breath and refining the asanas via the breath and slow movements. My goal for this class was to do a slower Dice class...hopefully I succeeded. Either way, a yogi is always refining his or her practice and I'm always refining my sharing abilities with my fellow yogis. Class includes modified Surya A, dancing warrior, handstands, lizard poses, pigeon prep (single pigeon), half-lotus in standing forward fold (ardha padma uttanasana) and hollowback handstands and forearm balance for backbends. Happy New Year yogis!!!
