Power Lunch with Rachel

Rachel Hyman-RouseThis 45-minute class is designed for the student who likes to move and is looking to establish or maintain a consistent asana practice. This is an active Vinyasa style class designed each month around the studio’s focus of the month. Over the course of the month, the series of poses is consistent to allow the students to learn and make progress with peak or challenging poses. The teacher will be practicing along side you, calling out the poses but there is limited alignment instruction and no adjustments. You are welcome to modify as much as you need. This is an opportunity for you to develop your own practice along side other students. Come throw down your mat and flow with us!
