According to yogic principles, everything in the universe is made up of 5 subtle elements: earth element is grounding; water brings flow; fire energizes & stimulates; air expands & opens; and space connects us to universal spirit. Practicing a variety of poses, we will explore our own unique expression of these elemental forces. No prerequisites: everyone is welcome who is interested.(Class a la carte: $60)

“Baby” Back Bends:
Here’s a way to radically rethink your backbends; sometimes referred to as baby backbends—these poses set the foundation for the deeper backbends.Rather than searching for intensity, we will work with awareness and search for a smooth, even arc in the spine, and then finish up with Urdhva Dhanurasana. No prerequisites: everyone is welcome who is interested. (Class a la carte: $45)
