Samstag, 15. Februar 2020, 08:00 Uhr (90 Min.)
Class 1 // Mindless Vinyasa is Dead // An Asana Practice with Intention
The practice of yoga is not one to let go, but to hold on. Too often these days we mindlessly move through our practice without intention or attention. Join Michael James Wong for practice of power, presence and poise as we move mindfully in a strong and steady asana practice that reminds us of the focus needed to truly connect the breath to our bodies.
This class will finish with a short meditation.

Class 2 // Flying Hanuman // An Inversions Practice
Join Michael James Wong for an inversions practice that will build strong foundations in the legs to support going upside down. Far to often we’re fooled to believe that the only important part of an inversion is our upper body, shoulders and hands, when the truth is, our hips, hamstrings and legs are equally necessary to stabilize your flight. Inspired by the myth of Hanuman, we’ll explore how to lengthen and strengthen the legs to support our inversion practice. Come ready to leap, come ready to fly.

Class 3 // Yoga Origami // Learning Binds, Locks and How To Plug In
Join Michael James Wong for a Katonah Yoga inspired practice where we’ll move the body through a series of postures that lock and unlock the freedom in the body. Throughout the practice, we’ll explore the theory and technique necessary to fold and unfold the 12 joints in our bodies in a way that opens the lungs, flushes the kidney’s and enlivens our vision. This class with challenge you remove the ego and help to manage the extremes of our practice, both in action and stillness, ultimately cultivating a true connection to our deepest self.
