IT MATTERS WHERE YOU TRAIN
Join us for a wine and cheese special Meet and Greet with Denese Cavanaugh, the master yoga teacher who will be leading our 200-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program in 2018. It is a great opportunity to ask questions about what it means to become a yoga teacher, what the course involves, and how you can truly deepen your own practice by learning how to teach.
All levels are encouraged to experience the enlightenment of Mala Flow vinyasa yoga, and those who have practiced traditional vinyasa yoga will be empowered to deepen their practice.
Mala Flow is less of a “call and response" practice and more of a devotional layered flow that will remove blocks and let in more light, making your practice truly your own. The journey begins with a mantra using mala beads. After warming the body with the A, B C’s of Surya Namaskar- the stacking practice begins (various asanas, hand balances and back bends) strung together by mind body awareness, much like mala beads, each bead represents an asana, and your body is the thread that supports the garland. The breath is at the forefront of the practice and students learn to let go and drive forward creating a pathway of self-enlightenment and transformation. This dynamic practice will fill you with concentration – (dharana) and layer after layer you drop into full release. Closing practice concludes with a mala closing prayer or kirtan, and Om is shared.
The studio temperature is kept at a comfortable level.
