(Class info)Building strength, the mind/body connection and flexibility, are just a few of the realms we will explore through a mindful vinyasa flow to 90s R&B, alternative music, reggae, jazz with a splash of meditative sounds. A mixed level class that offers modifications and adjustments based on one's own practice. Postures both powerful and restorative send the student traveling through asanas linked to their inhales and exhales. Practice ends with pranayama and meditation. Walk out feeling like you've just gotten a full body massage!
I am a Berkeley native, East Bay baby all the way. Being raised around artists, musicians, educators, Black Hippies, the yogic lifestyle was a familiar culture that I attempted to explore in 2009. As a dance major in college, I took my first yoga class only to hate it. It would take 5 years to revisit the practice. This time more mature and no longer dancing. Having switched to a physically demanding visual stylist career for many years after college, I had begun developing intense back pain, so I came back to the practice. I fell in love with the results after a few months, but not just the physical body, I noticed how much more calm and aware I was. After studying and consistently practicing, I knew I had to tell my people (Baydesterians) about the magical world of yoga, so I completed my 200 hr teacher training with Yoga to the People in 2015.
