Friday evening: Yoga For A Radiant Heart
Session schedule (subject to change)
The heart is the center of the universe, where all possibilities become available. Practice standing poses, hip openers, back bends, forward bends, and twists designed to light up your heart.Saturday morning: Yoga For a Vibrant Body
The body is a conduit for spiritual vibrations but is often blocked through habits of misalignment and limiting beliefs. Discover the midline—the place where the universal touches the individual—and increase your vibratory rate. Poses include standing, hip openers, back bends, inversions, and hand balances (modifications given). Enjoy working at your own level. We’ll explore different techniques for creating vibrancy of body, mind, and heart. Saturday afternoon: Yoga For a Sharp Mind
Cultivate the most powerful tool of consciousness—the mind. Open and release tensions in your body through soothing twists, hip openers, and forward bends. Then penetrate the layers of the mind leading you to the threshold of dynamic stillness. Pranayama, mantra meditation, and restorative yoga included. Sunday morning: Yoga For a Bright Spirit
Integrate vibrant body, sharp mind, and radiant heart in this full-spectrum class designed to peel away the "veils of consciousness" and illumine your spirit.
