Dice Iida-Klein

Hatha, Vinyasa Flow

Always drawn to sports and being physically active, Dice played hockey and baseball in his younger years. Later in high school he wrestled, ran cross-country and played tennis. After graduating from UCLA in the summer of 2007, he found himself trying a yoga class at City Yoga in Los Angeles. Enter HANDSTANDS. As soon as he saw the world upside down, his life had changed and the world as he knew it would never be the same. Yoga found its way into his soul and it made a home there. Shortly after he found yoga, Dice decided to take one step further and complete a yoga teacher training. Why not teach what you love? Upon completion of his teacher training at City Yoga in April of 2008, he dove in headfirst and began teaching.

Dice likes to be on his hands, upside down in an inversion or playing with arm balances. Expect them in his classes! The challenge that they offer builds confidence and strength, but more than anything they are just fun to try. Yoga made him feel like a kid again...playing on his hands and feet, where falling was part of the game. The playful aspect of yoga is just as important as its disciplined aspect. It is the balance between the two that makes yoga...yoga. If anything else, yoga helps to bring awareness to one's own body. This awareness is the balance of the body and mind. Dice's goal is to help his fellow yogis bridge the gap between the two. Be prepared to sweat, work, play and have fun on your mat!

Plank is a fundamental asana that creates awareness around your shoulder girdle, core body, pelvis and legs. Essentially, plank is a full body discovery that can give way to a greater understanding of arm balances and inversions like handstand. Expect a number of planks (some with long holds) and variations, as you sweat, work hard, and arrive into the present moment. Counter all of your shoulder work with heart openers and savasana.
Practice Focus: Shoulders

Level 2 45 min
In yoga, stretching and strengthening the front and back of your body is often the focus. Both are equally important, but being aware of your side body is just as essential. Move through a specially curated series of poses including supine twists, forearm plank variations, and some funky down dog play that focus on your sides. Feel more mobile and strong in your side body when all is done. Props Needed: A block.
Practice Focus: Side Body

Level 1-2 20 min
Back by popular demand, explore a practice taught in the "Ladder Flow" style. Move through a choreographed flow with variations inspired by the "pick up/jump back" of the Ashtanga primary series. Expect some time on your hands, as well as some time wiping the sweat off your mat. After all this movement, find a sweet series of hip openers on your back, followed by a short savasana. Props Needed: Two blocks and a blanket.
Practice Focus: Continuous Flow

Level 2 90 min
