Theme Descriptions

Lower Spinal Release

Amazingly easy and incredibly powerful, these poses provide profound physical changes.  Learn how to take care of your body as well as discover a deeper inner dimension that fuels your life.

Abdominals

Now you use your abdominal muscles in a whole new way.  As your core opens more, you develop strength in your abs, arms and legs, which work together to make you able to do more – with less strain, less pain, and less effort.  Discover the ease in strength

Backbends

Apply your newfound abdominal abilities to the most challenging of yoga’s poses — backbends.  Develop your ability to move the parts of your spine that are still stiff, through working with your abdominals and arms, in well-aligned, well-propped, and well-assisted yoga poses.  You are likely to grow ½” or more in this series!  It always amazes the doctors.

Classical Poses

Do the classical poses you see in yoga books and videos.  Take these challenging poses beyond merely being pretty, athletic or gymnastic.  Your previous themes have prepared you to experience these poses to their fullest expression!  For their fullest benefit!  And a lot of fun!

Forward Bends

Forward Bends provide a profound feeling of surrender, serenity & letting go, accompanied by bliss.  Discover the surrender in the midst of the effort, not only in yoga class, but in your whole life!

Heart Openers

Carry the openings farther up your spine, targeting the vertebrae behind your heart.  This spinal release opens your heart, while it opens your breathing and lifts your neck.  Even your jaw and sinuses get great benefit!  

Standing Poses

Stand up to move through the world without adding tensions to your body. As you learn how to stand without tension, you discover more stamina and develop a new meaning of the word “strength.”  

Vinyasa

Linking a series of poses together in a continuous movement with breath – vinyasa gets you moving.  When you can stay open in the midst of moving through poses, you can stay open in the midst of your life.

Daily Practice

Take your yoga home with you!  This theme focuses on the poses that make the biggest difference in your life - in the shortest amount of time. Each week gives you a new home practice that you can incorporate into your lifestyle.

Neck & Shoulders

Get an immediate improvement in your neck and shoulders with tangible results, even from your first class.  Discover the connection between your head and heart by lifting and lightening your neck and spine.

Balance & Inversions

Discover your effortless point of balance, and you discover more than mere steadiness and balance — your mind becomes wonderfully peaceful.  Once you’ve developed this ability, we teach you how to apply to balancing upside down!  

Seated Poses & Twists

All the other poses are for the purpose of making you able to sit, so meditation happens to you automatically.  This theme is the culmination of all your practice and preparation.  Twists help you turn your attention deeply inward, and seated poses naturally give you your own Self.
