David Toop's Sound Body hums and glows with life! Five gorgeous morphing Electronic tracks that continue Samadhi Sound's exploration of quiet, minimal, melodic music worlds created by the likes of Harold Budd, Akira Rabelais, Fennesz, Derek Bailey, David Sylvian and others. These remarkable soundscapes have only become possible in the twenty-first century, when improvisation, digital composing and mixing, and traditional music forms from around the globe all mutate and fuse in ways that surprise and delight.
Strong Yogi, is a quick and strong flow that begins with unique sun salutatons featuring fun strength challenges strategically placed in between flows to quickly build heat, flexibility and strength in a short amount of time. Great for when you need a fast and efficient total body flow. Live music by: James Stapleton Cotton, Debasish Chaudhuri, Masood Ali Khan, and Brent Kuecker.
A Vinyasa based practice that incorporates deep hip stretches, arm balances and twists. This practice works towards variations of Pincha Mayurasana, including the hollow back variation that shifts the gaze from in between the hands. Not suitable for those new to Yoga, but great for those looking for a little added challenge.
Ali gently guides through this practice, which includes twisting throughout. She will lead you into handstand while reminding you to practice patience, playfulness, and equanimity.
Get ready to flow! In this quick, 40-minute sequence, Ali will demonstrate how to warm up the body for Pincha Mayurasana Scorpion pose. That’s balancing on your forearms while kissing your toes. This is great for advanced practitioners looking to open up the chest while building strength in the core and upper body. Ali will walk you through step by step as she demonstrates one of her favorite poses in her own personal practice.
During this sequence we will work towards Svarga Dvidasana, Bird of Paradise. Bird of Paradise requires a strong core, open hips, shoulders, and flexible hamstrings. We will open up the shoulders so you can approach the binds necessary to hold the leg in this standing balance, and then move into the hamstrings so you can extend into the fullest version of the pose. Be prepared to sweat and work hard as we flow through this sequence. One block and a strap are suggested.
