This class will take you step by step through a dance flow sequence on how to approach side plank from its beginner variations to the most advanced. This is a practice in learning how to build the strength and coordination in a one-hand arm balance. And remember the most advanced pose for you is the one that is the healthiest and honest.

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.
