Yoga Class Description

Yoga can be a training for the mind as well as the body. We can cultivate a practice of having one-pointed focus on our mats that helps us tune the instrument of our minds. In this way we can use our minds to serve our highest selves. That part of us beyond our thoughts. This is a multi-level online yoga class where we explore this theme. We also learn and practice the tailbone scooping aspect of outer spiral. This is essential for helping us tap into our core strength and helping us support a safe lower back. This Anusara yoga class includes sun salutations, standing poses, inversions, a fun arm balance, and some deep hip openers. We end with a short meditation and savasana. (90 mins.)

Level: 2 Style: Anusara Yoga Focus: Alignment-Based Flow Yoga, Arm Balancing + Inversions Yoga, Hip Opening Yoga

Really enjoyed this class. Olynda's instruction for the poses are done is such a way that all different levels can work at their edge. Alongside the excellent differentiation she used little stories from her everyday that touches on Yoga philosophy with lightness, using examples from everyday that anyone can recognise, it certainly helped me make deeper connections to my practice today. Much appreciated.
