Nourishing Flow: Mondays at 9:30am. All Levels.
Nourishing Flow is a step by step energizing sequence, synchronizing breath to movement, with awareness and focus on the navel center, activating the fire/heat of the body, in order to build strong digestive system - stability and willpower, in gradual stages for daily integration. With precision to still know when it’s time to slow down, turn inward, and meditate prior to completing a particular series of postures.
Combining the wisdom of mindful progression of biodynamics and energetics through various stages (vinyasa krama), students aim to arrive to an understanding for a specific attribute. Using techniques of Asana (posture/alignment), Pranayama (energy cultivation through breath work), Bandhas (energy locks), Mantras (sacred vibrations) and Dhyana (meditation) in a methodological way, we align our selves to a deeper healing, personal evolution and a higher wisdom.

Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra: Mondays at 6pm. All Levels.
Practice: Physical and Emotional Healing, Meditation, Deep Relaxation
Restorative Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra is a way for the nervous system to realign back into homeostasis. Through connecting the breath with prop-supported poses Restorative give our sympathetic nervous system (the fight of flight system) a chance to feel safe and held. This relaxes and allows the parasympathetic nervous system (the rest and digest system) to bring equilibrium to the mind and body. The props are used to allow the body to fully emerge into a pose without any bodily or thought provoking strain. Yoga Nidra is often described as 'yogic sleep'. It is a guided meditation while laying down that brings the mind, body and spirit into the state between sleep and awake. In this state one can tap into their own intercellular matrix for deep healing.
Results from this practice include inner stillness, inner stability, and a renewed sense of vitality, thus, allowing the body's innate wisdom to bring harmony and presence onto our mats and into our lives.

EDGU: Tuesdays at Noon. All Levels.
EDGU is the first movement style of its kind. It invites all of the senses and faculties of attention into participation in a Unified Field of movement and awareness. Each EDGU session aligns and strengthens the spine and allows you the opportunity to re-write your story. It places our attention on the value of our core essence and takes us through a personal moving mythology, playing our intention into being through sharing. In a wide open stable stance, our spines gyrate through the entire range of motion for all 26 vertebrae. EDGU is evolutionary spinal maintenance and combines life affirming story telling into conscious movement like never before. EDGU is self chiropractic, balances the brain and increases the sponginess of the intervertebral discs.
Grounded in an open, stable stance that specifically isolates all motion to the spine, the upper body is gracefully gyrated through a fluid sequence of pivotal movements. This art of rhythmic spinal tuning systematically exercises the intervertebral discs to avoid disc degeneration by maintaining their inherent strength, pliability and absorbency. EDGU balances the left and right hemispheres of the body/brain, releases mal-aligned vertebrae, and liberates compensation patterns held in the body. EDGU creates a “wholly” experience, blending body movement with spiritual invocation.
Movement is the fastest way to sculpt the brain. The body is a structural projection of the brain and when the brain is holding in one hemisphere dominance, the body will display structural distortion. Most physical training is done in a one hemisphere dominance (stress) state and therefore builds muscle to compliment the distortion of “protection mode.” EDGU makes a great brain and body maintenance system to compliment the rest of your lifestyle.
