This is a back, shoulder, and core strengthening practice. This is an all-round power flow that focuses on plank variations, bear pose, and shoulder bearing work. Purpose is an inner shift. That is power because it brings responsibility back to the self. So instead of waiting for outer situations to change, we can influence our inner environment through self-regulation and observation.


This class is an exploration of the “power” theme and will incorporate both flow-based practice (linking poses together with breath) and static posture practice (challenging our strength and endurance). Power Flow will enliven students' core strength, both through focused core work as well as through emphasis on moving from the core into many categories of postures, such as arm balances. Practicing in this way improves posture, stabilizes the lower spine and pelvis, increases overall muscle tone, and heightens capacity for focus and mental clarity. This athletic and deep practice is not recommended for first-time yogis.
