Yoga Class Description

Join Sarah Faircloth, certified Anusara yoga instructor, and become the heroine or hero of your own life in this intermediate to advanced backbending class, leading to baby kapinjalasana. There are adversaries, demons, enemies in our own minds and in the world, so to become the heroine, we must call that one forth from deep within. Why become the heroine of your own life? To become what you admire in the characters of stories, books, your own life - not necessarily a super-hero. And also because sometimes the antagonist of our life is winning, the voice inside that says we are not good enough. We have to turn to our hearts and stand tall in our own knowing. Invoke your heroines in this class. (72 mins.)

Level: 3 Style: Anusara Yoga Focus: Alignment-Based Flow Yoga, Backbending Yoga

Amazing challenging class, yet I do feel that you make it accessible to even those who are at an intermediate level and are looking for a challenge. I love that you are constantly making sure that us students are checking for safety. This class definitely made me sweat too. Thank you!
