This class will focus on muscle recruitment, activation and strengthening for the most common Asanas (poses) used in Vinyasa Power Flow Yoga. While yoga is often described as “easy or beginner workouts” or “stretching” there is a great deal of strength required to practice safely and in this class we will focus on activating and strengthening chest, arms, core and glutes; the muscles responsible for safely moving through asanas such as plank, chaturanga, and all standing poses. In addition, we will work with Stephen Lening, a certified personal trainer (the guy who helps me keep my body strong and sound) to help assess movements and offer a more comprehensive perspective to function, alignment and movement. He will assist clients with compromised movements or injuries create modifications for safety in your yoga practice, as well as giving suggestions for strengthening moves to enhance movement in general. All moves will be body weight only and all levels and experiences are welcome. Please bring your yoga mat and any props you have including straps and blocks (not required).
