10:30 AM ALIGN & AWAKEN VINYASSA FLOW (Megan Kelly-Sasso)

This 30-minute class will guide you to clear alignment, yogic philosophy, breath work, and mindfulness as ways to help us awaken to a deeper level of awareness. I will include a few longer holds to help us gain strength and flexibility. We will also work with some flows to help us warm up and move consciously. Clear alignment by the Instructor where cues and hands on adjustment (where allowed) will be given in each pose so that students are safe and continually deepening their awareness of their own bodies. This is an all-levels class, where students will be encouraged to honor their body. Alternative poses will also be offered so that each student can make the practice what they need that day. Everyone will be invited to deepen their ability to be fully present in each moment. This mindfulness work lays the foundation to deeper consciousness and bliss as it will awaken us to who we are and allow us to have our own personal yoga experience.
