Description:
Today’s class will focus on twists and side bends to gently open up your heart center. We will practice gentle backbends as well as a mudra for your heart chakra with the Guru Mantra.

The focus of this week’s class is on Vishnu‘s incarnation as Krishna and his conversation with Arjuna that in taking a human form he could only be 15/16th perfect. We will reflect on our imperfect perfection as human beings and bring loving kindness, compassion and perfection to our imperfections.

Description:

The second class in our yoga stories series is the guru mantra. This mantra also focuses on the Hindu God‘s Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva. Today we will focus on how these gurus of creation, preservation and destruction show up in all areas of our lives. We will reflect back on our own experiences as see how each challenge in our life is an opportunity to learn.

Today’s yoga class will explore mantra and pranayama/breath practice as an opportunity to explore the gurus Braham, Vishnu and Shiva (creation, preservation and destruction). We will also explore these aspects through sun salutation/surya namaskar (creation), reclined hero pose/supta virasana (preservation) and poses for letting go (destruction).
