These classes, like the Soft & Strong, offer a multiplicity of techniques that culminate in, what is in my opinion, the ultimate experience of yoga–knowing one's self and wholeheartedly meeting each moment with that sensitive, integrated, authentic self. These classes being 90 minutes allow time for discussion of a spiritual teaching, chanting, pranayama, and a full spectrum asana practice that includes soft, easy technique work as well as strong and sometimes complex poses. The option is ALWAYS there to stay where you are, go back and repeat, modify, plunge ahead, or totally do your own thing. Additionally, I embrace the idea of "advanced" practice as NOT synonymous with big, complex, circus-style, pretzel postures. I define "advanced" as one having the experience, sensitivity, and interoception to know their limits and preferences, allowing for their own agency in choices to stay safe and comfortable in the practice.
