TWISTS: Cleansing & Churning
FRIDAY 2:00pm - 4:30pm
We have all experienced times of sluggishness and stagnation. In yoga, twisting poses have a cleansing and churning effect on the abdominal organs and associated glands and help restore range of motion in the spine. In this class, we use standing, seated and supine twists, to squeeze, soak and drain blood through the tissues of the trunk. This class, for all levels of practitioners, has an energizing and rejuvenating effect on the entire body.
PRANAYAMA & RELAXATION
FRIDAY 6:30pm - 8:30pm
Pranayama is an essential practice of Hatha Yoga that brings relaxation, clarity, focus, and renewed energy. It is the doorway from asana into meditation (the seat of silence). We will explore respiration of the breath as well as its coloration of patterns. This course induces different states of awareness through principles of posture and various forms of classic pranayama. Through this complete practice and dharana (focus and concentration) the yogi experiences the rise of knowledge, harmony, and peace within.
