Open Level Flow explores classical elements of yoga and breathwork for the modern practitioner in a vinyasa flow sequence. This class is inclusive yet expansive, allowing each student to work at their own pace to deepen their practice. Modifications and variations will be provided for each level of student to accommodate for both the motivated beginner and more advanced yogis.
Deep Stretch & Relaxation focuses on releasing tension throughout the body while restoring peace and calm in the mind. This class will consist of longer held poses in order to work deeper into the muscles and aid their eventual relaxation. Each class ends with Yoga Nidra ( a guided healing meditation in savasana).
You can do anything.
You can do anything.
I have this crazy notion, that every one of us is capable of more than we believe. All we have to do is stay focussed and motivated. We can get older and not only improve our health, but feel and look better. Imagine this: Whatever age you are now, you can be stronger, look younger and frankly be happier five years from now.
I know it sounds too good to be true, but I'm proof. I started practicing when I was 32, pregnant, completely inflexible and bit out of shape. At 48, I'm stronger than I've ever been and unlike a lot of people my age, I don't seem to be falling apart. It's not good genes as I'm sometimes told, it's yoga. If you don't believe me, look around. Search yoga teachers who are older and have a steady yoga practice. It's not luck. There's magic in yoga. It captures you, physically shows you it's working and then goes deeper.
As you fall in love with yoga you will eventually find that your behavior and actions in life change because you want to practice the next day. Our food and even friend choices begin to shift. Our attitude towards family and even strangers improves. When the yoga practice gets under your skin, you can't help but get better and better every day.
The key to yoga is finding a teacher and type of practice that works for you. They are not all the same and everyone needs something different. Just like any relationship, you need to find the perfect fit. It should make you happy and bring out your best.
You will learn to confront your weaknesses both physically and mentally and celebrate your strengths and accomplishments. Find your version of yoga, stick to it and make it a life ritual.
