All levels welcome! You will play with mindfully moving through yoga postures and movements from belly dance. This movement blend comes together to help you not only condition your body for flexibility and stamina, but to better remain calm when in stressful situations. You'll discover how to keep your intention in your movement while also challenging yourself with new technique and movement vocabulary. Breathe new life into your other performance and movement skills. This is training, perhaps the most important kind; training yourself to be fully flushed with your purpose while holding space for yourself, your technique, and the gaze of others.

Yang Energizing Yoga
In this class, beginners and advanced practitioners alike will learn how to safely work towards inversions (handstands, forearm balances, etc.) and other sweet tricks! You can expect to warm-up as you would in a traditional Power Yoga class, move through several conditioning flows, get in some solid “play time” and end with a flexibility increasing cool down.
This method encourages you to embody your movements while working on strength and getting comfortable being upside down. This class will supply you with practical conditioning, stretching, and progressions that you can carry over into your other movement modalities, or even just everyday life!
