Rocket Ashtanga Flow:  Start your day off with a blast!
Based out of San Fransisco, the Rocket routines were created by Larry Schultz during his time teaching Yoga to the band “The Grateful Dead.” Adapted from the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga primary and intermediate series, it is the perfect marriage of tempo and sequence, and is appropriate for all levels of students. With plenty of ways to modify the classical poses, the benefits of the poses are transmitted equally to renew vitality and energy.
This vibrant routine is called the “Rocket” because, “it gets you there faster.” This practice is designed to wake up the nervous system and feed it the precious prana it craves while promoting a spirit of change and freedom in the practice.

 

.

Yin Fusion Flow:  Join us for 90 minutes of a Yin Yang class.  In Yin yoga, you get into the connective tissue by holding poses to re-web the connective tissues in your body as they are strengthened in each pose that is typically held 1-5 minutes.  We do this on a cold muscle to allow for the magic to happen!   Yin yoga teaches us we to stay in stillness.  The connective tissue is rebuilt while holding the poses that are mostly close to the ground!  After, we heat up the muscles with a vinyasa flow sequence that will work you into bliss!  Enjoy an amazing meditation and savasana after to feel enlivened for the rest of your day. All levels are welcome!
