Episode 20: Magic, Level 2 50 min Yoga Class at the Center for Yoga

17 Dec



I turned it up a notch. This specific class on the schedule at the studio says a level 1-2 class, but I went a little bit more 😉 The pace of this class is a bit faster than I usually teach. I also didn’t do too many alignment principles through the vinyasa sequences, it was much more about moving with the breath and just opening up the body. I was inspired by a class that I had taken earlier in the week taught by one of my yogi friends, William Duprey. Y’all have to check out his website, he’s just great!
