Heart Over Head – Arm Balances & Inversions Workshop w/Blake & Shannon 2/12

Have you always wanted to learn how to fly and go upside down in your yoga practice? Do you want to invite more play into your life? Are you ready to flip your perspective with your heart over your head? Then be a YES and join Blake Mason and Shannon Leigh Lucas at Radiant Yoga for a fun and challenging arm balance and inversion workshop.

In addition to the physical and energetic gains from learning to go upside down, these challenging poses help us connect to ourselves and support one another.

They teach us the strength in overcoming our fears and challenges and unlocking our own power and possibilities.

 

In this two hour workshop you will learn: how to build a strong foundation in your yoga practice, various poses and exercises to get you flying, and how to weave in arm balances and inversions into your daily yoga practice.

Kundalini w/Hannah Zachney 2/6

Love without trust is impossible. If you break promises to yourself you will destroy your own trust. You must trust yourself before you can fully love anyone else.
Kundalini Yoga has taught me to trust my instincts, intuition and encouraged me to accept and know myself in a way that was previously unknown to me. Kundalini yoga offers endless tools to enhance this process. It will strengthen the heart chakra. It will build courage and resilience. It will wake you up. It has been said that a student cannot remain the same when they practice Kundalini Yoga. It will awaken the energy of consciousness, shed light on our self-imposed limitations and invites us to trust our intuitive mind. Kundalini will create dramatic, lasting changes in your life very quickly.
You will:
  • Learn the history, purpose, benefits and origins of Kundalini Yoga
  • Experience a kriya (a specific set of exercises with particular breath work in a particular order to achieve a specific outcome)
  • Experience a Kundalini meditation
  • Understand the power & grace of this practice

Ashtanga w/Shannon – Sunday, 2/27

Ashtanga Yoga is divided into six distinct series. In this, the Primary Series, we explore the grounding postures which will begin to purify the body, strengthen the core, dramatically increase mobility in the hips and knees, and open the shoulders and hamstrings. We will also learn how to breathe efficiently to generate internal heat and bring calm to our minds.

The Primary Series is framed by the familiar Sun Salutations, standing postures and twists, and a calming, restorative closing sequence. Hands-on assistance, adjustments and modifications are an integral part of Ashtanga, and no previous experience is required. Recommended for all students with a regular Power Vinyasa practice.

4th Sunday of every month from  noon – 1:30 pm

Regular class rates apply.

Deeply Rooted – A Holy Yoga Practice, Thursdays 7:30-8:30 pm

Deeply Rooted Holy Yoga is for everyone. Come meditate, breathe, worship and move through an abundantly grace-filled class.

Holy Yoga creates an environment to connect more intimately with God through a beautiful practice of breath and movement to contemporary and Christian music. There is often a misunderstanding that yoga is a religion, it is not. Yoga is a spiritual discipline, much like prayer, fasting and meditation. Yoga has the capacity to enhance our personal beliefs and faith.

Thursdays from 7:30 – 8:30 pm
