Aiyana Yoga Practice

As a perpetual student of yoga my latest fascination is what we can discover about our bodies through the practice.  Actually, this has always been what it's about for me, but now I am looking at it differently.

In the last class on March 11th we talked about compression vs. tension; how we can investigate what is keeping us from being able to deepen into a yoga asana - or if we can even do it at all given our body type and bone structure and a bunch of other variables. It's not just about lack of flexibility.

This class we will explore the question of stress - good stress vs bad stress - and the term anti-fragilizing.

We won't have a ton of time for talking as the class is a mere 90 minutes, but I promise a good stretch for your mind and body.

.Aiyana Yoga, which means “forever blossoming,” is a flow-style practice, and with respect to Kali Ray TriYoga, unites the trinity of asana (yoga poses) with pranayama (breath) and mudra (hand gestures).
