Class Description

  1. The Art of Falling
  2. Let\'s face it we are not afraid of nailing a balance whether it\'s on our hands or feet, we are afraid of what might happen if we don\'t! And well, isn\'t this true in life? Inevitably we all fall and thank goodness. The yogi that falls the most, learns the most. The knowledge and skill we learn propels us towards our potential and prepares us for greatness. It helps if we can make friends with our fear of falling, and with grace and new founded awareness rise up again. Be prepared to dance your edge, tap into your deep core, feel your power, and yes fall because this is the spice of life, and where we learn the most about ourselves. This challenging specialty class is for the yogi who desires more than what the standard yoga class offers. We will play with and learn some exercises and asana variations that will help build strength and awareness to safely and skillfully sustain (and fall) from crow (and transitions), headstands, handstand, forearm balances and more! / ALL LEVELS WELCOME.

  4. Unravel and Unwind your entire body through the artistic fusion of Myofascial Release, Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow. Starting from our very connection to the Earth, our feet and working our way up the body systematically targeting the major joints and muscle groups. By opening those "stuck" areas of the body, you will experience new found spaciousness and freedom Expect a full body release, ending with a short yoga nidra.

  5. Super Soul Flow!

  7. Rock the Bhakti!
  8. One of Tymi\'s signature flow classes, Rock the Bhakti is a celebration of Love, Service and Devotion. A non dogmatic, Bhakti inspired vinyasa flow practice artfully sequenced to both contemporary and kirtan beats. You will open up to the very heart of your practice, as we learn how to intelligently and efficiently open the shoulders, chest and spine to experience the power of the Anahata (Heart) Chakra. As our hearts open they literally become "unstruck" and we are able to experience the flow of unconditional love. Not to leave out the lower body, we will also dive into quad, psoas, hamstring and hip releases. You will most definitely sweat, sing, laugh and when the spirit moves, dance! / ALL LEVELS WELCOME.
