Open Level Vinyasa

This class is taught by:

Libba Harmon

Twenty five years ago I woke up to the magic of yoga (NYC-style), and was hooked. Truth and change keep calling, year after year. These days I'm most interested in elevation and revelation through motion on the mat and the weight of the sitting bones. Drawing from an inspired long-term love affair with vinyasa, my teaching suggests a fresh approach to flowing, with attention to breath, midline and internal landscape. The perfect match for my other job as an acupuncturist, teaching feeds me like nothing else. Witnessing human beings trudge in, kick off their shoes and rip open their hearts is something to see.
This class caters to all levels, with clear instruction for those who are new to the Vinyasa practice, and more advanced offerings for students who want a challenge. Nothing is required, and staying in the realm of your own level is encouraged.
{The Vinyasa style is born from the Ashtanga Yoga tradition, developed by the great Pattabhi Jois, whose teacher was the inimitable Krishnamacharya (“the father of modern yoga”). A typical Vinyasa class warms the body through sun salutations; flowing movements, using conscious breath as a metronome. As your teacher leads you through his or her own mapped-out, sequenced design, you have the opportunity to explore your presence in a variety of poses, some with longer holds than others. Some Vinyasa classes are themed toward a peak pose or class of poses, while some touch on all or a selection of the various classes of poses: standing poses, forward bending, backbending, twisting, hip and side openers, and inversions. Pranayama (breath work), meditation and bandha work (work with the 3 locks of the body) are also found tucked into many a Vinyasa class. Each class is a new experience.}
