(Suggested props: 2 blocks, 1 blanket, and if you have a bolster grab it. If not you can roll two blankets together or do without!)

In this class you will explore different hand variations in everything from planks to side planks, to down dogs to handstands. You will also do plenty of front body opening in preparation for bekasana. It's a backbend and wrist party! 

(Int/Adv) Kula Flow is vinyasa (or flow) style yoga with an emphasis on creativity and alignment. Classes are inventive and thoughtful sequences of sun salutations, standing & seated postures, back bending, and inversions—guided by a steady breath to tone and calm the mind. Most teachers also use bandha work to open and strengthen the inner body. (Classes differ in tone and vigor depending on the teacher, so if you have special needs/interests please contact [email protected]) For students with a regular yoga practice.
