Sara instructs the following:
  • Power Vinyasa
  • Warm
    Discover the "Power" and strength within you! This is a vigorous class which builds heat and stamina through sun salutations, linking stronger poses and sequences. This class is created to carry those who have a strong existing intermediate to advanced yoga practice through a series of poses and sequences that lead up to taking peak postures, if desired. Class emphasizes the principles of forward folds, core strengthening, and twists. We also include inversions, arm balances, and/or back bends. Stillness is offered through Deep Stretch floor poses and relaxation will round out the class for a balanced experience mind, body, and spirit. Best suited for those with a basic knowledge of the poses and a Vinyasa practice.  A great precursor to this is Foundations, Basic Vinyasa, or Intermediate Vinyasa.
