Ha (sun) tha (moon) – creating a uniting balance of masculine and feminine opposites. These postures are designed to align and open channels of the body (mainly to the spine) ,so energy can flow freely and we can heighten our spiritual awareness.
Kick “A”: The “A” in this class stands for alignment, (body) awareness, and (self) acceptance. Students and teacher practice together in this interactive, longer format, and more vigorous class. Expect timed poses, partner work, lots of silliness, and more challenging poses. This class is designed to kick your asana! Appropriate for intermediate and advanced levels.

Sadhana Society: Come explore the power of collective consciousness in this once a month meeting of Sadhanas (yoga practitioners). This class starts with an hour of Mysore style practice for intermediate/advanced practitioners to come together for a freestyle practice within their own needs with their own flow. After savasana, the class will join with the Mahamrityunjaya mantra (provided) for 15 minutes, followed by 15 minutes of breathing, and will conclude with 30 minutes of silent meditation (new meditation suggested monthly by Benny James). This class is designed to be a bridge for those who wish to deepen into the less commonly practiced aspects of yoga, and will be loosely guided by the knowledgeable Benny James. It is recommended that practitioners have been practicing in teacher led classes for at least six months in order to be able to move safely through their own practice.
