NaiAsana™ yoga is a unique somatic healing practice weaving in both dance and flow arts, to cultivate harmony through a deeper connection with the cycles, rhythms, and elements of the natural world. From the cell to the cosmos, the circle is the universal symbol of unity, while the spiral is the essence of the feminine - both divine and earthly. Both are undeniably the most prevalent shapes found in nature. Yet, the vast majority of modern yoga styles follow a more linear, often rigid, format. It is also well known that most asana-lineages have been predominantly male-influenced. In this class, we open to the inquiry of how feminine qualities bring strength and balance to the practice, for both women and men.

Both on and off the mat, this vinyasa of spiral, rhythmic and cross-body movement patterns, often incorporating playful props such as poi or the hula hoop, allows effortless, joyful, restoration and repattering of the nervous system. When we use this quality of more circular fluid movement, we discover a way to work with the body's inherent wisdom, rather than against it. In this way, not only does the NaiAsana practice help individuals discover new, often ecstatic, ways of moving, but also provides many therapeutic benefits.

The principles of NaiAsana are rooted in the ancient Vedic Kosha system, elemental wisdom, divine feminine teachings, embodied play, and neuroscience. Come celebrate the fire within as you discover new realms of creative expression and beauty that transforms.
