Fire: Hard Work with a Twist
Limited Capacity seats available

These are some of the most popular classes at this point in time, and yet some of the most difficult within which to achieve the outcome that a yoga practice intends philosophically. How do you get students to work hard, move, and do it with ethical integrity? This session will contain a practice based around the vinyasa/power model that takes individuals and personal choice into account, allows for exploration and discovery, is physically demanding but also limits the risks and pitfalls in classes today.

We will deconstruct the postures and activities used during the practice from an anatomical and biomechanical
standpoint. Functional range of motion vs limited range vs hypermobility will be discussed as they are important physical considerations to take into account within this type of class. The expectations of students and teachers in relation to this class style will also be discussed and alternatives that offer the same outcome without the problematic components will be offered in an effort to marry the intention and outcome of these classes in relation to a yoga practice more closely than is often possible.

Discussion Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
Practice Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes
