In today's fast paced world a little dose of slower paced activity is a wonderful way to find balance. This class is focused on releasing tension in the body and mind. Asanas (postures) taken in this class are approached from the most foundational level to highlight alignment and function. While "gentle" does not necessarily mean "easy" this class is appropriate for all levels including beginners and people working with injuries. Conscious awareness of breath is used throughout the class and specific pranayam techniques are often included.
Hatha Vinyasa w/ KT
The term "vinyasa" is often used to describe movement sequenced with breath. This is a dynamic class that uses a "vinyasa style" approach to create heat in the body and draw the practitioner into a state of awareness with their breath. While each class is different there is always an effort made to find a balance of strength and flexibility in both the body and the mind. Modifications are offered for more complex asanas to ensure that everyone is working at a level that incorporates a true presence in each posture that is appropriate for where they are on the day. Focus is sometimes put on specific area of the body or a specific posture allowing students to develop further into their practice. As with all KT's classes there are elements of pranayam to teach calm control of the breath as well as meditative components.
