What kind of Yoga are we doing?

Daily 90 min Master MIA  (Myofascial Integrated Alignment) Class

These classes focus on stimulating and building fascial properties (elasticity, plasticity, glide), strength, and mobility through highly specific poses and movements to create a balance of tension and compression between antagonistic lines and self-balancing lines.

Daily Handstand (& Headstand) Training

ALL LEVELS of handstand (& headstand) experience from brand-new beginners to more experienced handstanders are welcome. Just come willing to play!

Examples: flexibility/mobility/strength conditioning, handstand line training, basic and advanced handstand entries, hollow backs, and press to handstand.

Daily Arm balance exploration

ALL LEVELS of arm balancers are welcome. We will master the technique of the Crow pose and learn how to evolve into other arm-balancing shapes.
