    Shining Heart Vinyasa Flow

    Vidya Heisel

    An interesting and varied fusion-vinyasa flow yoga class, with plenty of inspiration from other yoga styles, including Iyengar and Kundalini. This class includes challenging and strong poses including flying splits and arm balances. Starting with breath work, the class then gives some wonderful chest-opening warm ups, which also work on neck and shoulder release. Then join Vidya for a fun vinyasa yoga flow, with some Kundalini breath work and poses mixed in, and an Iyengar variation of Downward dog. As ever, move at your own pace, and don't feel you need to join in for things that might not suit you on this day. You will need two blocks and a blanket. After this class please do follow with a long savasana.
