Super Human School

Super Hero School - The Mystical Art of Being Awesome
(arm balances and inversions-2 separate workshops and one open flow)
Every super-hero must go through the proper training in order to take flight. Focusing on steady progression, solid technique and firm integration of alignment and breath, this workshop will cover those poses which require one to hover above the ground, with the connection being mostly the hands. Shapes such as crow, eight angles and handstand require use of the core, the breath and the use of energetic locks called bandhas. Arm balances have as much to do with overcoming fear and infusing one with confidence as much as advancing the asana practice. With diligence and dedication, the inner Hero is revealed.

Tapas and Sadhana Friday Night 2 hour class $20
Vinyasa means to move or place with intention. This class aims to help the student build the necessary internal heat (tapas) to help purify and detoxify the system, and clarify the mind. Students will also be introduced to the concept of sadhana, having a personal practice or more specifically, achieving a goal using skillful means. The goal of Yoga is to cleanse the mind and the heart and make the practitioner fit for spiritual life.
