This Power Vinyasa yoga class consists of: sun salutations, a power series (strengthening postures), balancing postures, grounding postures, heart opening postures (aka backbending postures), core strengthening (hello, boat pose!), Inversions, hip openers, seated forward folds, and lastly some simple twists and Savasana.
Class will always begin and end with three chants of Aum. If you’ve never chanted aum before you may feel silly but give it a shot your vocal chords like to practice yoga as well!
The class is equally focused on alignment, and incorporating yoga philosophy as it applies to the postures and modern day life.
Come to this class to:
– Get creative in your yoga practice
– Discover your power
– Get connected with your body/mind
– Forget about life and feel alive
– Discover your physical and mental edge; learn to balance challenging yoursel with acknowledging the progress you’ve made up to this point
– Get a good sweat on and open up your body
