DEEP DIVE WITH US
December’s 12 DEEP DIVES taught us one thing for sure: learning helps.
so, we’ve decided to make DEEP DIVING a regular thing…every Tuesday and Thursday @ 4:30p and every Sunday @ 9am.
what is a DEEP DIVE? it’s a flow class where we take one asana and look at it through a particular lens – alignment, anatomy, action, transition, intention, conditioning, variations, etc. – to gain precision, strength, and finesse.
each month, we’ll work on 12 postures from a particular family of postures. each week, we’ll look at common asanas within that family.
what’s on tap for January?
the beginning of the year is a great time to get your feet on the ground, underneath you and pointing in the right direction (insert all the other foot-related metaphors here).
standing postures are a great way to strengthen, warm, and energize the body — so they’re an especially good choice for winter practices.
they are also the most easily modified for every body — so if you’re just starting, or just getting back into yoga, they make a good place to start.
