Chakra Charge Yoga Flow – 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. Esoteric breathing techniques and the mechanics of challenging asanas such as arm balances, standing balances, inversions and rotations are brought into focus. A synthesis of the 8-limbed path of Raja Yoga, Kundalini Yoga, and Ashtanga Yoga along with influences from other yoga systems and traditions as well as with strong influences from the movement arts, this meditation in movement enlivens every fiber and generates new life. Experience rejuvenation on all levels and enjoy deep relaxation. Awaken your inner fire and fan the flames of higher consciousness with our vigorous practice!
Hatha Flow Yoga – Hatha Flow, much like a slower-paced vinyasa flow, is about linking breath and movement to release tension from both the mind and the body. Starting with a short meditation, we will flow into a Hatha sequence where we hold postures, build strength and increase flexibility. Ending the class with savasana and a head massage, this session will give you the release and rejuvenation you need.
