ASANA CLINIC: Chaturanga Deymstified
Saturday September 19 | 10:30 - 12:00
Chaturanga Dandasana is a fundamental pose in a vinyasa practice, but it is both an advanced and complex pose that is commonly dubbed "shoulder shredder" because of the risk it poses when practiced with poor alignment.
In this asana clinic, we will unpack the common misalignments of this pose and practice drills and exercises to refine and build strength toward a sustainable chaturanga for YOUR body. We will look at transitions into and out of chaturanga, and options for modifying the pose without losing out on strength building.
SELF LOVE FLOW: Slow Vinyasa & Yin
Monday Septebmer 21 | 18:00 - 19:00
Anna will guide you through a luxurious slow placed flow practice filled with space to emphasize peace and calm in body and mind. We hold poses longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving to each breath. The class will conclude with some yin poses and an exploration of subtle energy healing using your own hands to work with your own energy body. *This is an online class*
