I love Intermediate Kripalu Vinyasa Flow classes! It’s a really fun, sweaty, challenge type of class. It makes the relaxation at the end that much more blissful.
The experience begins with a guided meditation centring & breathing (pranayama) techniques to instil a sense of presence in each moment throughout the practice. A warm-up (pratapana) to prepare the body for yoga poses & posture flows that move with the breath (vinyasa). A meditation in motion style of teaching promotes a strong mind-body connection while learning to listen to YOUR body’s wisdom is emphasized. The styles of postures (asanas) that you will explore in this class include strengthening (warriors, planks, bridges), balancing (trees, dancers, figure 4s, balancing tables), stretching (pigeons, forward folds, runner’s stretches), heart opening (dancers, puppy stretches, camels, bows) the seven movements of the spine (flexion, extension, length, twists & lateral stretches) and some fun challenges such as arm balances, head stands and many more (all optional). The attention of the class invites students to notice the subtle levels of sensation and breath as well as the transitions between each yoga pose. Benefits include stress relief, relaxation, balance, flexibility, strength, clarity of mind, increased memory, and a heightened love and respect for the body.
This class has lots of room for growth as well as modifications when needed. Each class ends with deep relaxation, meditation and a relaxation gentle hands on/energetic assist. (Optional)
Note: This series of classes is a good choice for both strong beginners and yogis with a regular practice! If you are looking for a class that challenges you as opposed to purely relaxation and stretching then this is the class for you. Drop in available @ $17.70+HST/class if space allows. Space is limited.
