We often over rely on force in Inversions and arm balances rather than using architectural smarts and proper specific warm up to get into them smoothly. Learn to approach these poses with ease, grace, and power. You will learn tricks to kick up to the wall, balance without the wall, open your shoulders, boost your confidence to get air borne, and connect to your playful spirit. By exploring the science and psychology of arm-balances and inversions you will get past the mind blocks that stop you and instead equip you for any challenge life brings in the future.

The Psoas muscle is a big deal in yoga - it connects your legs to your spine! A portal to deep flexibility, power, and grace in your practice, this is one muscle you’ll want to get to know well in order to sustain a long term practice and gain more freedom in your body as you age. After an enthusiastic anatomical overview of the psoas, Amy will help you align your psoas effectively in a variety of her favorite psoas-opening poses. You will walk away feeling taller, lighter, stronger and feel like anything is possible.
In this subtle and powerful evening, dive into both active and restorative poses that specifically help you open your breathing and pranayama (breathing) practice. Experience the peace and euphoria that comes from bringing more mobility to the primary and accessory muscles of your respiratory system. Class will conclude with classic pranayama practice, said to be the gateway to meditation. Perfect whether you've been wanting to establish a pranayama practice or you simply want to hit the pause button, recharge, and renew.
