Explore Your Core
This class is all about fun transitions that ask the yogi to learn what and where the bandhas are and how to use them. We will move through fun and challenging transitions that demand we get centered, pull in through the midline, stay grounded and get to the core of the body. This is a vinyasa flow style class focusing on breath, movement and tricky balances and transitions, getting down to the core of our practice and deeply to the center of the soul.

Backbends for the Non Bendy
A “bend don’t break class”. Expand into advancing the practice. Often, we just heat up so much that backbends come more easily. In this workshop we bend not just in the bodies but also our thought process so that challenges do not break us. Learn to use yoga to physically and internally open the heart. Let backbends become a more accessible part of your practice.
