I will be teaching a new weekly open Hatha yoga class at Uptown Integral Yoga, which shares its’ lovely space with Namaste Yoga Center.
This Intermediate level yoga class consists of gentle warm-ups, sun salutations (with modifications and variations), standing, supine, and seated asanas, eye movements, yoga nidra (deep relaxation and savasana), pranayama (breathing exercises), and meditation. We open and close the class with the traditional Integral Yoga peace chants. The focus in the class is on proper alignment, as well as flowing through the movements with ease. Connecting movement with breath awareness and flow creates a moving meditation. Principles from the Yoga Sutras and other yoga philosophy texts are articulated in the class periodically, and always underlie the class foundation.
