Power Vinyasa ~ 6-week live online course with Kirsten Wilkinson
Are you looking to build strength and flexibility? Are you interested in increasing your lung capacity and your metabolism? Do you want to discover new ways to move your body and find your inner rhythm and flow?
If the answer to any of these questions was “yes”, then it is time to discover fluidity and power within your vinyasa yoga practice.
Each human body has a natural balance and special relationship with gravity. In this smooth, quick moving yoga series there will be many opportunities to become curious about your own physical strengths, your internal emotional regulation skills, and the doorways between cognition and mindfulness.
In this 6 week course you will learn techniques that encourage physical transformation through posture flow sequences, breath, and yielding while also exploring short meditative exercises, bringing together many elements of traditional yoga practices that are often overlooked in westernized studio classes.
What are the benefits of Power Vinyasa?
The approach of this course is both scientific methodology and traditional eastern philosophy and practice. Kirsten holds space for the possibility of both personal intentions and non attachment to outcome during the unfolding of Power Vinyasa through layers of sensation, goal setting, and progressive skill building.
Classes will include quick but flow based asana posture series’ that will focus on breath, balance, muscle and nervous system strength with opportunities for stretching and moments of exploring our relationship to gravity as well as short mindfulness practices to encourage integration along with cognitive and spiritual cohesion.
