Class Plan Created By Sarah Erter Physical Focus || Chest expansion + heart opening [anahata chakra] Spiritual Focus || Connection to self + world around us In its simplest definition, yoga is connection to ourselves and the world around us. In a yoga practice, as you move + breathe, the overall energy is heightened within you and around you. It can be easy to be pulled away from this connection during your day – or even during your yoga or meditation practice – but it is in your practice of noticing and returning through mindfulness that you are brought back to this connection. As you emerge from your yoga practice and return to your day, see what happens within you and around you as the vibrations you created continue to flow within…

No Muck, No Lotus – Class Plan

Class Plan created by Betsy Shilling Physical Focus || Core/Balance Spiritual Focus || No muck, no lotus Peak Pose || Eka Pada Bakasana, Titibasana Class Length || 75 min We all have parts of ourselves that we don’t want to see or acknowledge, and we let ourselves hide from anything that brings up those insecurities and threatens exposure of our shame or fear to self or other. Have you noticed how often these parts of our selves threaten to make an appearance and how quickly fear and aversion trigger avoidance? What if instead of running and hiding, we invited our aversions and insecurities into the fore and willingly danced with our shadows? Could we see ourselves with more clarity, embrace truth, engage in right action, and find greater peace and…

Visshudha (5th Chakra) – Class Plan

created by Laura Hand, www.wayfaringyogi.com Physical Focus ||  Backbends + Pratikriyasana Energetic Focus || Visshudha, Communication Pilgrimage Pose || natarajasana Class Length || 60-75 min “All of the delicate shades of feeling are a result of communication” – Travels with Charley, John Steinbeck. We are able to more fully embrace our experience when we can articulate our inner world through art of language.  Visshudha is our communication center, it is where we feel connected, a sense of spiritual communion that happens when we feel truly understood. Consider through this practice as a dance between the throat closed (self-reflection) and the throat open (self-expression). View/download full class plan.
