Actual Vinyasa Flow Yoga but without sun salutations. What! How is that even possible!?

Do you sometimes find yourself wishing you were already at the end of your yoga practice…
That you could somehow bypass that uncomfortable bit at the beginning when your body feels kinda sluggish and stiff?

Is it a struggle to get on the mat because you know your body is going to complain during those first few creaky downward dogs?

Especially those early rounds of sun salutations does your body go: Ueugh… WTF… really this again?…. Now?…. do I have to…!!

Do you think to yourself: it will feel better once my muscles are warm and you push through all those feelings of discomfort and put it down to “my resistance to practice”
…. because we all know the hardest thing is to get on the mat. Right?

Those feelings of discomfort are NOT resistance. That is your connective tissue telling you something. Its telling you that army drill calisthenic movements that were probably thought up 80 years ago in the 1930’s for young indian boys are not the most effective, efficient or compassionate way to begin a yoga practice in 2014.

There is another way of practicing yoga that doesn’t involve starting off with clunky repetitive and lets face it rather tedious rounds of surya namaska A and B. (sorry Guruji those moves ain’t doing it for me anymore)

Imagine a challenging Vinyasa flow class that eases you in with awareness, so that you enjoy the whole class right from the beginning.

Imagine a challenging Vinyasa flow class that eases you in with awareness, so that you enjoy the whole class right from the beginning.

One that challenges your body, and properly, intelligently prepares it. So that when you come to a strong balancing pose, all of your muscles feel ready and completely awake. You feel steady and fully connected to your foundation, and your core, and your breath and you truly recognize what if feels like to be in this body now.

You enjoyed the whole journey of getting there, not just the destination.
You didn’t have to push through or bypass any of it.
You showed up physically and mentally for the whole class,
beginning, middle, and end.
