Created in 2003 by Lisa Black as her unique signature style, SHAKTI is a dynamic, fluid, creative vinyasa yoga sequence that will challenge your mind and body and leave you feeling free and uplifted. Classes are based around the central theme of “wave-like fluidity" and multi-directional sequencing. We will move on our mats facing the front, the back, and both sides of the room using this circular based sun salutation, or “mandala namaskara” influenced by Shiva Rea, as the main structure. Within this dynamic flow, we explore creative variations of powerful standing postures, arm balances, twists, back bends, and hip openers. You will "surf your edge" as we support each other in learning playful inversions that leave you empowered! Be prepared to sweat, have fun, and explore your yoga practice in a new way. This class is appropriate for anyone with at least six months or more of steady vinyasa yoga practice and an open, willing mind. The yoga studio is heated to a comfortable, warm 90-92 degrees with humidity.
