This series is designed to take intermediate level students towards a level 3 practice! We will begin to work with more advanced postures within longer sequences that include sun salutations, headstand, handstand, forearm stand, shoulder stand, backbends, forward bends, bindings, arm balances and lots more! These classes are for more seasoned yoga students that are comfortable with inversions. Students will develop strength and refinement in all asanas.

In our work together, the yoga postures are not our primary focus but they are used as a testament to the "behind the scenes" work we do. For example, a pose like handstand becomes a testament to the hand, wrist, shoulder, thoracic, hip, hamstring, foot and ankle work that we have done. Now we walk better, run better, dance better, climb better, squat better, lift better, sit better, sleep better, create better, digest better, work better, think better, feel better AND we can do a handstand!
