We start off in seated meditation to taste our exuberance. We then proceed with slow spinal waves to warm our bodies up so that we can rev our awareness up into a brisk flow which challenges our ability to listen, respond and coordinate all the moving parts of our experience in a way that feels balanced and healthy. We slow it down with hip stretches and sink tenderly into our corpse pose, leaving it all on the mat and feeling refreshed from our practice.

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.
