A journey of inner reflection and self-discovery, Yoga for Issues in the Tissues, is a gentle, explorative, and meditative class. The practice of deeply listening to the whispers and patterns of the physical and subtle bodies empowers self-healing. Together we take the time to deeply listen to, acknowledge and respect the body's requests. Discover patterns of issues and use ancient yogic tools of wisdom as gateways to become centered in self.
Warrior flows, balance poses, twists and hip openers take the lead in this wrist and shoulder friendly flow class. If you are missing your flow due to a wrist or shoulder injury this is perfect for you. AND if you love your flow and want to play with new sequences, this is perfect for you. There are no down dog or chaturanga poses but we know how to flow!
