Core and Bandhas – Finding Your Float (a.k.a. “Socks & Blocks”)
Saturday, November 18 – 1-3pm – Twisted Hot Yoga Knapp’s Corner
Sunday, November 19 – 11:30am-1:30pm – Twisted Hot Yoga Caledonia

This workshop will help you fire up your core physically and energetically. When we work to bring strength and flexibility into our center we create a stronger and safer yoga practice and we bring more stability into our life off the mat as well. A strong core helps us to realize how capable and strong we are in life as well as in our yoga practice. This class will include plenty of core work as well as twists and backbends to create a healthy balance of suppleness and strength in the body. We will cover using the core to float forward and backward during sun salutations as well as how core strength helps us in intermediate to advanced yoga postures. Expect to be challenged physically in a playful environment. What to bring: a pair of socks, a towel and a playful spirit. Cost is $25. 3-month members receive 10% off. 12-month members receive 20% off. Discounts are automatic at checkout.

Inversions – Flip Your Perpective
Saturday, December 2 – 1-3pm – Twisted Hot Yoga Knapp’s Corner
Sunday, December 3 – 11:30am-1:30pm – Twisted Hot Yoga Caledonia

When we go upside down in our yoga practice it can have an energizing or a relaxing effect on the body depending on the type of inversions we choose to practice. Inversions challenge and humble us as well as create a tremendous amount of core and upper body strength. Join us as we explore how to safely turn our worlds upside down. We will cover multiple approaches to headstand, handstand and forearm stand and then explore the cooling effects of legs up the wall. We will also explore the postures that can be used to build the strength and stamina needed to feel safe and stable in inversions. More than any other posture, inversions can remind us that yoga poses are not the most important part of a yoga practice, they are just a vehicle to learn more about ourselves. It’s truly all about the journey. Cost is $25. 3-month members receive 10% off. 12-month members receive 20% off. Discounts are automatic at checkout.

Yin

Discounts are automatic at checkout.

Chakra Flow
Sunday, February 18 – 11:30am-1:30pm – Twisted Hot Yoga Caledonia

This workshop will take you on a two-part journey through the chakras. Part one consists of a flowing seven-part sequence designed to bring awareness and encourage exploration of each chakra through asana (yoga postures), affirmations and simple chants. Part two consists of a guided meditation that will allow you to have an opportunity to reflect on each chakra and develop a greater capacity for the life force to flow and free your heart to move into the future with joy. Cost is $25. 3-month members receive 10% off. 12-month members receive 20% off. Discounts are automatic at checkout.
