Heart - Core Yoga with Max Strom

Register for this event under “Workshops”

Is it possible that your hard body, so rigorously constructed, is really a means of building armor, to protect yourself? This vigorous class will not only focus on core strength and healthy physical alignment, but will also invoke the question of our “life alignment.” An aligned body is healthy – an aligned heart and mind is even healthier. This unique practice is designed to awaken the strength of the body and the healing power of the heart. Class will include vinyasa-flow, non-dogmatic philosophy, breathing, and meditation. Open to all levels of practice.

Some Doors Open Only From the Inside with Max Strom

Some Doors Open Only From the Inside: Come and experience the healing power of transformational breath-work. This is an all levels practice.

Yoga can spark within us the dawn of light, our higher nature, the spark that begins the creation of happiness in our lives. It is said that the human heart has a mind that is asleep within most of us, but when awakened becomes a powerful guiding voice. It is the voice of intuition, wisdom, and conscience. It is the voice that guides us to become truly human. In this special workshop we will begin with a talk by Max, then integrate breathing exercises and gentle movement. Then the second half of the workshop will focus on simple chants unfolding into a meditation, to open the door to insight and growth.

During the second half we focus on interactive and partner poses, movement games, and guided relaxation and visualization. No prior yoga experience is necessary as we include age- and intensity level- appropriate variations to accommodate all of the students in the workshop and make sure that everyone has fun.
