SHIVA YOGA MAHA SADHANA:
SATURDAY DECEMBER 10TH - 9AM-12PM
The “best of the best” that yoga has to offer. A celebration of yoga which honors Garth’s teacher’s -- Sri Dharma Mittra, Srivatsa Ramaswami, Annie Carpenter, Dr. Larry Payne and others. This class begins with a philosophy discussion, as well as special breathing practices and cleansing techniques. Setting intentions and practicing gratitude, students move through a challenging and balanced sequence, with an emphasis on practicing concentration and surrender. Sun salutations and a challenging warmup lead to deeper inversions, backbends, spinal twists, and forward folds. Students practice going into the fire, staying present, and letting go of the distractions of the mind. There will be lots of fun partner yoga and some fun acro yoga variations. This class concludes with an extended final rest with guided yoga Nidra meditation, followed by seated concentration & meditation practices, and a special demo offering.
Free for Monthly Members. All Other Students $40. Bring Your Mat, Water Bottle. Vaccination Card.
