e-ryt 500 yoga teacher and teacher trainer based in brooklyn, ny.  i started practicing yoga up in boston in my late teens, immediately after a period of massive (less than healthy) weight loss, and just before...

While the theme of this class is pincha mayurasana (forearm stand), there is no expectation that you will be standing on your forearms by the end of class. Instead, we look at the various actions of the body that need to come together so that inversions like headstand or forearm stand are possible in the future. 

(Basic/Int) Get in the Kula Flow! Kula style yoga is a deep, challenging practice that will make you stronger and more flexible on the outside and softer (and more flexible) on the inside. You are never too tight, too tall or too weak to begin. (There’s nothing we can do if you’re too much of a procrastinator to get here.) Open to beginners as well as those wanting a slower paced vinyasa class or those who wish to reconnect with the fundamentals of alignment and flow style yoga. Though we like to emphasize that these are not so much yoga basics classes (there are plenty of those around the city), as basic Kula style classes.
