Change Your Perspective Vinyasa
A change in perspective changes everything! This fiesty and beauitfully sequenced vinyasa yoga class shows us how when we change our perspective on a yoga pose, new possibilities are opened up.

You may need two bricks.
Wake up your Feet!
Our feet are our connection to the earth – they are our roots. We rely on them for balance and for carrying us from place to place, and yet they are often overlooked and underappreciated.

Begin to open from the ground up; stretch and expand through your feet and see how, by waking your feet, you wake up your whole being! You will need a strap which is tied to help a toe-stretch.

Effort Without Struggle
In doing yoga, we can learn from the Buddha’s wisdom of working with right effort. This practice will look at how we can move through a practice and learn to identify when we’re putting in healthy effort, or when our effort feels a bit more like a struggle! There will be some strong arm balances like one-legged crow (eka pada galavasana) where we can play our edge, but also moments of surrender. Hope you enjoy it.
