A Flow Of Birds With Jemitra Hairston
19th August | 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm£20
Whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, you have probably noticed that yoga has several unique features. One of yoga’s most unique and charming features is that many asanas are named after birds.
This 90 minute flow style masterclass includes all the classic asanas: eagle, heron, pigeon, peacock, and the crows plus a few extra aviary surprises here and there. During the class, we will make a physical exploration of the birdlike qualities of freedom, lightness, and flight. Students will be encouraged to consider ways to bring those qualities off the mat and into everyday life. This masterclass is suitable for all levels. Be ready to sweat and take flight.
