May Brings Workshops, Special Classes

Announcement | May 05, 2017

SpriteArmBalanceSterlingHotYogaManja Podratz is now leading a 60-minute vinyasa slow flow class on Wednesday mornings at 8 a.m. Manja’s style of vinyasa yoga is offered in a non-heated room with a focus on postures that build strength, promote balance and increase flexibility in flow with the breath.

She received her 200-hour teacher training in 2014/2015 and also has extensive knowledge of hatha and kundalini yoga. This Wednesday morning class is currently planned for May and June, and is offered for a donation of $10.

On Saturday, May 20 at Noon, make plans to attend our Platinum Plus class led by Michelle. This 75-minute practice incorporates the 26 postures of our beginner’s class, but it is also complemented by intermediate Ghosh postures, as well as vinyasa and yin postures.

The Platinum Plus is an excellent way to challenge yourself, work on new postures outside of the 26/2 sequence, and feel energized and accomplished. We recommend that you have practiced the 26/2 sequence for a minimum of three months before taking this class. This one-time class is offered for a donation of $10, and may be added more frequently depending on response.

Finally, Sprite will be leading a workshop on Saturday, May 27 at Noon. “Finding Balance” will be a 90-minute session that will teach students arm-balancing techniques that will complement students’ Hot Bronze Flow practice and teach a few new techniques as well.

Balancing poses help connect with the present moment by requiring constant focus. Adding the challenge of balancing on the hands or arms instead of the feet requires an even greater degree of mental focus. Arm balances can also help to increase feelings of self-confidence, courage and inner strength. “Finding Balance” is offered for a donation of $10.
