Alignment, Vinyasa and the Rope Wall
Alignment Vinyasa and the Rope Wall utilizes props and rope wall support as well as dynamic sequencing. The yoga props support and inform the alignment intelligence of the body. In order to access the feel of a moving meditation and a quiet inward experience the class will build slowly towards fluid movement as it coordinates with our breath; allowing time to practice, experiment and observe mental and physical responses to new alignment. You will be encouraged to adjust the directions to suit your personal needs. Some experience with Hatha Yoga is recommended.
A good old fashioned Vinyasa class utilizing sun salutes from the Vinyasa Astanga tradition, standing and seated poses, and a nice long rest at the end. Experience with Hatha Yoga recommended. The class will be directed to who is in attendance.
This class is for students with experience in Hatha Vinyasa Yoga. Vinyasa II students should feel comfortable adjusting the practice to suit their bodies needs, and are able to follow the intricacies of alignment instruction. An advanced practice = greater awareness.
The best way to transition from weekend to workweek! Using breathing technique, gentle preparatory poses, and props we will investigate ways to engage your mind, make your body comfortable, balance your nervous system and send you off for a great night sleep.
This class requires pre-registration and will run in 4 weeks. Yoga play-time for kids! Ages 4-8.

“I teach for who is front of me. To create a moving meditation and a quiet inward experience the class will use dynamic sequencing as it coordinates with our breath. We will move as a group but you will be encouraged to adjust the directions to suit your personal needs and I will show you how. I look forward to getting to know you on the mat.”
