Yesterday evening, I put on a Vinyasa & Vino yoga class for the community at a local Clubhouse over in North Beach. It was so much fun to see friends and new faces and all that attended were such inspiring yogis. The flow was very smooth and I paired it with the Power Flow Playlist I shared last week on here with a few adjustments for time. The group was able to enjoy some light socializing, snacks, and wine afterward which made for a really delightful Thursday evening.
I wanted to share the class sequence here for you all to try out at home and I’m always welcome to feedback for how you modify the practice for your own style 🙂 Knowing that written out sequence aren’t always the most inspiring and the fact that I’ve received a handful of request for video tutorials of sequences, I’m happy to announce that a few are in the works and I’m so excited to share soon! But for now written directions will be my go-to. So grab a small glass of wine and enjoy. Namaste.
*Note, I do not note the breathe or duration of holds for poses but if this is helpful for you and your practice please let me know and I’d be happy to add.
