March 3rd - 6 - 8:30pm   Arm Balances- You're Stronger Than You Think

The poses affectionately known as arm balances may conjure up all sorts  of fears or doubts about our own strength and ability. This class is all  about having a victory with these poses. Whether it's the first time  you hold yourself off the floor in a pose or you've been working towards  some of these poses, you will learn all kinds of tips to help you work  smarter in these poses and make them more accessible. *asana based*

March 4th - 9 - 11:30am   Passport To Your Core: A Yoga Practice to Guide You into Yourself While Turning Yourself Upside Down

This class will use asana and pranayama to examine the mind body  connection more deeply. The focus will be on the group of poses known as  the Inversions - the upside down poses. Through an intelligent sequence  of poses we will practice Handstands at the wall whether you are a pro  already or a complete novice. Forearm balance will be done at the wall  as well and headstand and shoulderstand will be introduced and shared as  well. We will complete the class with the most restful pose, Viparita  karani, legs up against the wall. This class will be taught in a  supportive compassionate environment with the focus on the process of  yoga and not necessarily on the final pose. All are welcome!

 *asana,  pranayama, some partner work, props used for sure*

March 4th - 1:30 - 4pm   Introduction to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali

Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras are considered to be the road map for the yogi.  The word “sutra” when broken down is translated as “su,” meaning to  link, and “tra,” meaning in order to the sutras are small  phrases with very big meanings. All yogic traditions are rooted in the  ancient philosophy, which basically explains the steps needed to be  taken in order to reach enlightenment. While most of us are not  necessarily after enlightenment, these seemingly simple aphorisms can be  a lifelong study and practice. In this class we will explore the sutras most related to asana and we’ll  do this through translating them, defining them, and then chanting  them. ***This will be a discussion-oriented class with some pranayama  and meditation included.***

March 5th -  10 - 12:30  Maya Yoga Vinyasa Fusion Flow

This is a strong dynamic yoga class that incorporates all aspects of  Maya Yoga including asana, pranayama, chanting, meditation, prayer, and  deep relaxation, to leave you feeling recharged and inspired about your  practice. Sun salutations will be practiced to build internal heat and  establish the harmonious flow of breath and movement known as “Vinyasa”.  Standing poses are linked with the sun salutations to create the  dynamic flow that is both detoxifying and rejuvenating. What happens  from there is organic and may include backbends, forward bends, arm  balances, inversions or hip openers depending on the students and the  energy of the day. The end of the class will bring you back to yourself  and leave you feeling more centered and grounded, especially after a  long savasana with Nicki reading poetry to you. *asana, pranayama, chanting, props when needed*
