"I see vinyasa in every single moment, from the mundane, to the profound. It’s moment by moment, breath by breath, learning to stay absolutely present in whatever is right in front of you-- not looking for it to be different, but embracing it for what it is, and seeing the unfolding happening quite magically."

Friday, February 5th 2-5pm - THE BODY AND BEYOND especially for Yoga Teachers and Experienced Students
Vinyasa means to link movement with breath.

Through the integration of asana, proper breathing techniques and conscious intention, learn how to experience the creative and powerful practice of Vinyasa Flow as a devotional expression of life -beyond the body. This meditative dance not only strengthens, tones and stimulates all the various systems of our bodies, but also initiates us to the knowledge that there is no separation of the mind and body, matter and consciousness, heaven and earth- you and I. This intensive can be taken as a way of enhancing your teaching or going deeper into more advanced principles of the practive of vinyasa flow yoga. Experience with Sun Salutes A and B is necessary.
