Sun Salutations A and B are often the backbone of a modern vinyasa yoga class. When our practice progresses and we’ve done these sequences thousands of times, we tend to go on autopilot and miss out on some of the nuances and benefits of these forms. This class is a playful and oftentimes challenging tune-up of the poses and transitions contained in Surya Namaskar A and B. After we spend some time saluting the sun, we enjoy some backbends before we settle back down to chill.

(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.
