GATHERING THREADS OF ATTENTION

We will toggle between warming vinyasas, walking meditation, pranayama and bright attention; threading awareness throughout each different activity. This active class will involve sitting, lying, rocking and rolling, twisting and using props to invert. Several downward dogs will pop up, but no standing up on your legs poses will happen this evening. Yes, you will sweat. And the uniqueness of this class will leave your body and mind feeling nimble, fresh and clear.

SLOW FLOW FOR LIFE

Sustainable yoga is a practice of working with all the ingredients of your life, as you are and as you change. Cyndi will talk about sustainability, boredom, mindfulness and mendfulness. The dynamic sequencing of Cyndi’s medium-paced Slow Flows and three variations of savasana will focus on clarifying methods of rotation, extension, contraction and receptivity.   Taking time to observe the effects of our yoga actions helps us have agency in our practice and our life, now and in the future.

MINDFULNESS OF THE WHOLE BODY

Mindfulness of Body is an integrated mind-breath-body training practice which teaches us to fall back into the simplicity of each moment.  Cyndi will unfold the traditional layers of this powerful Buddhist practice in a mini-talk on Sati or Mindfulness, followed by deliberate, de-constructed asana work.  Beginning with the feet and going up to the neck, head and face, Cyndi will offer clear and sustainable movement work for strengthening, stabilizing and mobilizing all parts of the body, now and in the future.
