YOGA & BARRE CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
Vinyasa Flow, likened to a dynamic dance, is a practice where postures or Asanas are connected through the breath for a transformative and balancing effect. Classes build heat, endurance, flexibility and strength. The creative sequencing found in a Vinyasa class is often built around Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations). Vinyasa as a form, is always evolving.
Teachers weave together wisdom teachings, poetry and music that can inspire physical, energetic, mental, intuitive, and pure bliss states of consciousness. Open level classes serve students who are looking to evolve to the next level, regardless of what that may be. These classes will vary in range of difficulty, and teachers will offer variations for every student in class. Classes may include arm balances and intermediate inversions, and no matter what, students should expect to be push the limits of their flexibility and focus.
