As the guardian of the threshold, Ganesh in charge of transitions and transitional spaces: he holds space for us to move through and beyond our obstacles with awareness and power. In this vinyasa flow workshops we will invoke Ganesha , ruler of the Earth element, so that we may find our ground, root into earth, and move with grace and power. This workshop will include a journey through the lower chakras, mudra, and chanting, with a focus on the earth element and hip opening arm balances.

In Chinese medicine, we recognize the connection between the Heart and the Kidneys. Through deep energetic channels their energies communicate— it is through this energetic mandala that the energy of the Kidneys anchors our Heart’s vision to the power and discernment of the bandhas. In this vinyasa flow workshop we will explore the energetic connection between and Heart and the Kidneys. We will activate the power of discernment, Samana Vayu, as we move through a mandala (or sequence) of backbends and arm balances geared towards aligning us with our innermost vision. We will explore, align, and flow with our innate energy through asana, mudra, breath work (pranayama), and chanting.
