Come give it your best effort.

Everyone is welcome to attend any class. Of course the guides of "beginner, intermediate, advanced" should be taken as rough guides because it all depends on where you are at in your practice. What is advanced for one, may be intermediate for another, etc.; and what is beginner for one may be challenging for another. Come and do what you can. Find your starting place, and then find your next inch.   Remember that 100% effort equals 100% benefit even if you’re not in the full expression of the posture. Instruction is provided to keep your practice safe and effective.

All classes are taught by Martha unless otherwise noted.


Sunday

 

11:00-12:15 pm: Barkan Method Level II Five Hot Vinyasas

Fit Beginner/Intermediate

This is a set sequence of asanas--Barkan Level II Five Hot Vinyasa.  It is a challenging practice that will take you to new spaces in your body, and mind. Approximately 40 minutes of  vinyasa flow,  followed by approximately 20 minutes of standing postures (eagle, dancing shiva, head-to-knee, balancing staff, tree, toe stand).  Then we make our way to the floor for about 15-20 minutes of floor postures, ending with a luscious surrender- to-the-floor savasana.   This class will strengthen your core, increase flexibility of joints, spine mobility, open hips, and in general it will hone your Vajra Dehas -- "diamond hard body".  Modifications are shown throughout. Everyone is encouraged to find their fullest expression without judgment, and then find their next inch.
