Modern Yoga (on and off the mat) is a dynamic class bridging vinyasa flow yoga, mind-body fitness modalities and floor based modern dance principles. Paced to a playlist ranging from Classical to Alternative the class sequences artful movement patterns to stretch, tone and ground the body. All of the sequences are choreographed and clearly guided similar to a yoga class but with the personality of a dance class. Dancer or not, yogi or not, this is not a traditional dance or yoga class. It is for the athletic and artful minded individual that is looking to creatively expand their practice. This class will open up ones approach to transitions, musicality and flow. Ultimately, Modern Yoga enables a strong, and efficient body, stimulating grace and fun through motion to connect to your authentic self.

We begin class on the mat with either a standing or sitting moving stretch for the spine and hamstrings to then transition onto the back for deeper muscle release work. Using breath and the principles of contraction and release we begin to feel the separation of soft and hard tissue. This builds into more engaged core work integrating some Pilates-based movement and exercises to warm up the arms to take weight. We then roll our mats to the side and begin building a musically inspired standing vinyasa series to eventually move into a paced and vigorous sequence. We introduce both familiar and unfamiliar yoga patterns learning the principles of foot pivoting to change direction. Class resolves in deeper floor stretching and then savasana.

*****This class is for people with a strong yoga foundation, There will be no hands-on adjustments and minimal prop use. A strong chaturanga and solid body awareness is required.*****

Class time devoted to lecture: Less than 5 minutes
