An open level vinyasa class offering space for students to practice breath awareness and regulation (pranayama), meditation techniques, and physical postures (asanas). Offering space for both rigor and relaxation, the class focuses on alignment to explore range of motion of joints and muscles, breathwork to enhance concentration and present moment awareness, and flowing postures to build stamina, strength, and muscle tone.
