Strong Flow


at YOGA SOUP (28 PARKER WAY SANTA BARBARA, California 93101)

This intermediate to advanced vinyasa class is heat-building and powerfully-paced.

A strong and soulful flow with plenty of opportunities to play, sweat, and find your center. Creative, joyful sequencing of movement will call on and cultivate strength and stamina. This class is intended for all levels. For those with more experience, come with curiosity and eagerness to playfully explore arm balances, challenging standing balancing poses, and sometimes practice inversions. Newer students are also welcome:  Each pose will be built up through kramas, or stages, with thoughtful attention to alignment; modifications are always offered. This type of step-by-step exploration of shapes creates space for everyone to participate in every pose and allows for the natural unfurling of experience and deepening over time. Fire and flow are balanced and interwoven with mindful awareness of the interior landscape, including invitations to explore the breath and to savor the sweetness of lingering and stillness.

Music is played during this class.
