Power VinYASA BASICS

Start from the foundation: ground down and from there shine out!  In this class you will fine tune your practice. The instructor will commonly breakdown poses to give a greater understanding of the anatomy, function, and action of poses. If you are a first timer or the seasoned yogi who wants to dive deeper towards their edge, this class is for you.  Whether you want to move at a slower pace or if this class is the only one that fits your schedule, you landed at the perfect place. The studio is warmed to 85-90 degrees.

BOWSPRING Level 1

BOWSPRING LEVEL 1 (Sridaiva): Based upon the emergent Sridaiva postural system, this class is focused on maintaining the natural curves of the spine within a dynamic postural template called the “bowspring”. This slower moving class is challenging in that it requires awareness and activation of the back posterior chain, which is often weak and under-used. Bent knees, hovering heels, and a full radiant heart allow for the poses to feel springy, light, buoyant, and open. This class is open to all ages, all practitioners. Class is maintained at a temperature of 82-85 degrees.

BOWSPRING Level 2

BOWSPRING LEVEL 2 (Sridaiva): Once you find the Bowspring alignment in your body you can flow and float. In this practice you will expand and deepen your knowledge of the bowspring within a continuous flow of poses. We will play with maintaining the Bowspring on all planes, including upside down. This class will increase stamina and increase your lightness. A working knowledge of the bowspring is required for this class. The studio is maintained at 82-85 degrees during this practice.
