Flying Upwards

This practice begins with Uddiyana Bandha, a pranayama technique that involves the abdominal muscles and diaphragm. Uddiyana bandha is translated from Hindu to mean “flying upwards” or “upward abdominal lock.” Uddiyana bandha tones the abdominal muscles and diaphragm and is best practiced on an empty stomach, only after an exhalation, and if possible in a standing posture. I will provide further details in class. 

Our practice also includes sun salutations (vinyasa yoga flow), to honor the return of the Sun – one of the sources of life – as well as our sacred inner fire. 

The asana postures are designed to fan and ignite the flames of the first, second, and third chakra. As we increase the digestive fire, we can more easily transform “food” energy into cellular power and cleanse what is unnecessary. As we bring more prana -life energy –  into the belly region, the higher regions of the divine flame flicker brighter, touching and igniting the energy of the heart (fourth) and throat (fifth) chakra. 

Our yoga practice will also include sun salutations (vinyasa yoga flow), to honor the return of the Sun and our inner, sacred fire.

Healing Injury? For those who have a history of injury or trauma and notice that the effects of the minor/major injuries are beginning to interfere with your everyday lives, please note that all of the yoga classes are naturally healing.

Each yoga class is designed to help release stored pain, anxiety, stress, or tension you may be experiencing so that vital, healing energy – prana – can move freely through the entire body. When vital energy is flowing freely (not obstructed), you experience positive emotions, revitalized energy, mental clarity, lightness, pain relief, and an overall sense of well-being.
