Anastacia's yoga journey started as a teenager when she was seeking to increase my flexibility. At the time she was an aspiring ballet dancer and was desperate to make her body do what it needed to in order to “fit the mold.” After just a few months she fell in love with yoga, and realized that there was much more to it than just the physical benefits. She became more in tune with her own body and less concerned with achieving any ideal. With each practice she learns to be content with exactly where she is and to be grateful for each breath that moves me through the postures. To this day still learning on her mat, and love sharing the peace and energy that yoga can bring to people in the midst of life.
Anastacia instructs the following:
Mindful Hot Flow
Mindful Hot Flow is calming yet invigorating, it focuses on alignment and breath. Although the 90-95 degree heat takes getting used to, it can quickly become addictive! Mindful Hot is a fusion of traditional a Hot26 and Vinyasa Flow. The pace is designed to create challenge by holding poses longer to develop alignment awareness, engage strength, develop endurance, improve balance, open shoulders and hips. It is where to start a "power" practice and also where to come for growing & maintaining your level of strength and flexibility. It's very important to hydrate prior to class. Also, recommended that you take class more than 90 minutes after a meal. Great precursor is Foundations and Vinyasa Basics.
Skip your massage & unroll your mat here! Each posture is held two to five minutes utilizing props or unique, gentle variations to encourage deep release and relaxation. While the physical body unwinds, the energetic body sheds pent-up stress. Yes, you can achieve (at least for a moment) true inner peace! This is a perfect complement to your active, yang practice, athletic endeavors to give you greater flexibility and help prevent injuries, or just to relax. All levels are welcomed.
