Alignment Based Flow – This class is designed to open the chakras and to coax the body into positions properly. We will focus on the alignment of the skeleton in the traditional yoga postures; and how correct placement of the body not only frees up the joints and assists flow, but opens the chakras taking the practice to a deeper place. Emphasis is placed on the individual, and through time, we will explore and tune all the chakras. This class will operate more as a calm space for guided exploration/ alignment workshop than a traditional flow class. You will enjoy if you are looking to tune up your alignment and find energetic release. Good for all levels! Length: 1 hour Cost: $15

Chakra Charge Yoga Flow is a dynamic dance of flowing sequences that recharges every cell in the body. The class follows a format made up of opening invocations and mantras, centering and intention-setting, powerful pranayama practices, warm-up exercises leading into extended sequences of intermediate to advanced asanas, stamina building practices including Kundalini Yoga techniques, and exercises that challenge and develop neuromuscular drive and efficiency. Mantras, mudras and meditation practices and readings from yoga philosophy and spiritual texts provide the underpinnings that give context and meaning to our efforts.
