Need a head to toe tune up? Start your class off with some long held floor poses, working out those deep seated kinks. Once your machine is well oiled and ready to flow you’ll be guided through some vinyasa flows. A little therapy, a little sweat.
Think yoga can’t be your exercise of choice? Think again. Power yoga uses isometric holds, your own body weight and clever sequencing to build some serious heat and strength in the body. Modern upbeat music will keep you in the game while we stretch, strengthen and build your stamina. Core work, crazy yoga poses, inversions and arm balances may be on the roster. Sweaty? Yes. Fun? You betcha.

Grace and Grit Weekend Immersion : Living compassionately in a world that requires you to be fiercely strong Feb 21 -23 @ MVMNT STUDIO with Karla TreadwayThroughout history human culture has been inherently harsh. We had harsher conditions to survive – famine, war, depressions and other acts of suffering that required us to push away our emotions and act of out survival.While many parts of the world are still facing these atrocities, much of the 1st world is living comfortably and the basic needs for survival are not only met but surpassed with many living in more than comfortable circumstances.With basic survival needs met we have turned our attention to more internal matters. We have a more compassionate world, we talk about mental health, feelings and emotions. We seek fairer circumstances for all, softer ways of being and more relaxation and peace.Many have so much. Yet depression, anxiety and mental illness are at higher rates than ever before. At some point during this historical swing I believe that we lost our ability to handle what life throws our way.We went from a world where we had to be so tough, to a world where we have become too soft. We need the balance in between.We need compassion, love, self care and understanding in this world. We also must have the strength to face our daily life stressors and be able to handle the daily challenges that life presents itself with each day because struggle in life is inevitable.Grace and Grit examines the polarities of strength and ease. We look at where we can use each energy to create balance in our life and relationship with self and others.We look at both energies as necessary parts of the whole. The light and the dark as required energies for not only surviving but thriving in this modern world.Traditional yoga practice promotes just that. It was a discipline, designed to help us safely dip into small amounts of stress while teaching us ways to mitigate those feelings. It was never restorative yoga. It was never easy. It was a practice of grit designed to open us up to grace.Grace and Grit is for you if you feel like you need more balance with these energies. This workshop is for you if you’d like to build mental and physical fortitude that allows you to walk through this life with grace and ease.Grace and Grit is a mix of lecture, inquiry, asana, pranayama and meditation.Friday 6-9pmSaturday 9am-5pmSunday 9am-5pm
