YOUniverse Stage

For active beginners to experienced. Achieve muscle balance through the cultivation of strength and flexibility. Explore variations on classical poses and an introduction to pranayama (breathing) in order to maximize the activation of muscles, organs, and energy systems. For those with more experience, find challenge in pose progressions. Expect detailed instruction, revisiting of simple reference poses (i.e. forward fold, squat) to highlight the state of muscle balance, and mention of physiological effects of poses. Leave class feeling the best kind of paradox – accomplished yet challenged and relaxed yet energetic.
