This class is for those who are new to yoga and are looking for a practice that will build strength and flexibility over time. Learn the building blocks of the Ashtanga system and how to move in conjunction with the breath and gaze in a flowing sequence of postures with variations offered where appropriate. Postures are drawn from the Primary Series of Ashtanga. Props Needed: One block, a blanket and a strap.
To cultivate fluidity and grace, flexibility and a liberated range of motion are essential. Lengthen and release the often tight and bound up places within your body with longer, yin-style holds. The sequence works to decompress and bring space into your hips, shoulders and spine. Savasanas are sprinkled throughout and you will leave your mat feeling open and relaxed. Props Needed: A bolster, one or two blocks and a strap.
Improve your posture by focusing on creating more flexibility, openness and range of motion in your chest while strengthening your upper back and core. Move your body with a flow of vinyasas as you build strength and stretch in this critical area of your body. A backbend finishes your practice, then take savasana on your own. Lots of counter poses for the work you do on computers and devices! Props Needed: A strap.
