Awakening Yoga is a progressive yoga system rooted in Hatha vinyasa with an emphasis on ritual & self inquiry. We pay homage to the traditional nature of the yoga practice with a practical and functional approach to asana for today's bodies and minds. This practice encourages personal exploration, possibility, and freedom of movement from both the teacher and student.
Awakening Yoga is comprised of 4 foundational pillars. The marriage of these unique facets provides accessibility & diversity for students of all experience levels.
The focus of this practice is turning repetition into ritual in order to create a deeper focus in the present moment. With foundations in modern vinyasa yoga we expand on what is possible by exploring each asana with a deeper level of awareness to find joy in the opportunity to practice.
This practice is founded on the belief that we are all designed to move. That movement exists in every plane, and thus so must we. Utilizing an array of principles from asana, movement, somatics, and functional mobility we focus on joint mobility, spacial awareness, and range of motion exploration.
Self care, we all need a little bit more of it. If we are to be compassionate people we must also have some for ourselves. These slow practices will help nurture your body to recover from the stresses of daily life.
Learning to breath through challenging situations is a skill we can all benefit from. These classes will push you to your physical limit with challenging sequences of functional movement that help you break through barriers you never thought possible.
