the BODYopen is a yoga and breath-based class intended to wake up the body and introduce students to moving energy, building strength, breathing deeply and powerfully, and remembering what it is to feel connected.  This class is our preferred place to introduce students to THE BODY PRACTICE and is intended to nourish all levels of practitioners but is designed for beginners or students returning to their mats after a long time. Students move slowly and synchronize to the beat of the music in order to elevate the practitioner's body self-awareness and alignment. This practice gives students the foundation needed to feel successful in any of The Body Practice classes while still physically challenging participants through longer holds of poses, intentional transitions, and simple, artful flows.
