Description of Classes 

Through this study we will deepen our understanding of the Yoga Lifestyle of Cultivated Human-ness and Eco-minded Consciousness while developing and supporting Super Hero qualities.

Strengthening our spines, working towards a balanced body and base foundation encourages the untangling of our nervous systems.  These benefits are reflected in emotional health, open-mindedness and heightened energy levels, allowing true Aloha Spirit to be plentiful in our lives.

Removing the aches and pains from ones body can be a slow process depending on the amount of accumulated acids in the cells.  Bringing in vibrant, sattvic, living foods can assist in a more alkaline chemistry, allowing our bodies to return to a balanced state of less tightness, stiffness and pain. 

 “It is our birth right to develop a strong spine and experience flexibility balanced with strength.

We are here to assist you in incorporating what you learn into a simple home practice, that you love and enjoy; developing habits for the best version of your authentic self.  When stepping into this course we inspire you to bring the 8 fold path of Patanjali Yoga into your daily life.
