Ashtanga Vinyasa is a vigorous vinyasa practice than draws intermediate to advanced practitioners looking for a more physically challenging pace. It highlights key concepts of the Ashtanga primary series with mindful introduction of challenging poses such as arm balances or inversions. Ashtanga Vinyasa connects movement with breath in a dynamic series of postures done with calm focused attention, for strength, flexibility and a quiet mind. Be prepared to sweat a lot as you move through Ashtanga's meditation in motion, as you engage core muscles, and work with a balanced steady breath.
A challenging and dynamic flow incorporating pranayama, mantra, chanting, meditation and yogic wisdom. This class will strengthen your body, open your heart and nourish your soul. ”Bhakti” means LOVE—totally dedicated, fearless and selfless. Bring your practice back to the heart!
Come unwind from your day, and spend your Sunday night with candles (more than usual), music, good vibes, and a blissful flow class. The class willl build strength and stamina while cultivating mindful awareness with movement. This class is suitable for all levels, but be prepared for a challenge! Remember to notify the instructor of any health challenges.
