This class opens with a demonstration on that shape traditionally known as "cobra." Watch and learn a new, more effective way of benefitting from the shape. We expand on spine and hip mobility throughout the class including Avita's approach to "triangle."

Materials: 1 Bolster, 1 Strap

As mobility and health improve, confidence increases, and the student is naturally ready for more time, pressure, and complexity in the shapes and movements. Avita Orange classes allow the advancing student to experience these additional elements safely. Remember to reduce pressure and time when you are in doubt. It's wise to practice mostly Avita Green two to three times per week and add an Avita Orange class once per week. Please note, Avita Yoga Red classes are available only as replays for now.

Avita Yoga® is an approach that specializes in resolving injuries, chronic pain, stiffness, and hyper flexibility. It eases the body’s aging process by stimulating the body's natural, healing physiology. Avita Yoga addresses our differences--body type, age, life history, injury, etc. Too often, we unwittingly move around our problems, which tends to make them worse over time.

Avita Yoga® is a sustainable practice that generates long-term results with more freedom in the body and more peace in mind. If you've ever thought that you are too stiff for yoga, then Avita is for you. The goal is simple: to remain healthy, mobile, and happy as long as possible. As such, Avita Yoga is a no-frills, results-driven practice. Best when practiced three times per week, it is a systematic approach that pays close attention to each student. It works for students of all ages, abilities, and degrees of mobility. Avita is the yoga for a lifetime™.
