In this class we will explore clear alignment, yogic philosophy, breath work, and mindfulness as ways to help us awaken to a deeper level of awareness. Our physical practice will include longer holds to help us gain strength and flexibility. We’ll also work with some flows to help us warm up and move consciously. Clear alignment cues will be given in each pose so that students are safe and are continually deepening their awareness of their own bodies. This is an all-levels class, where students will be encouraged to honor their edge. Options will be offered so that each student can make the practice what they need that day. Everyone will be invited to deepen their ability to be fully present in each moment. This mindfulness work lays the foundation to deeper consciousness and bliss. It awakens us to who we are, and allows us to experience the state of yoga.
For the Month of May we will be using various poems to highlight the beauty, mystery and inner practice of our yoga.
