Sit, Hold, and Feel the Postures
Focus: Balance postures, Hamstrings, Strength
In this class, we explore a series of standing poses that inspire change in the body. Many of the poses will challenge your focus and your balance but never in a way that is designed to overwhelm or disempower. Take the time to set up the poses and then find the breath and do your best. It doesn’t matter if you fall out or it doesn’t look perfect. We practice yoga for its effects and not how it looks. We will do balancing poses like Vrksasana (Tree Pose), Virabhadrasana III (Warrior 3), Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon), and other balance postures. Releasing the ego from our practice allows us to be in the present with our bodies as they are. Slowly change occurs but instead of rushing and impatiently looking for range of motion, we learn to understand how the asanas teach us something new each time. Enjoy the practice, embrace Savasana, and move on with your day feeling restored and revitalized.
