Vinyasa (2)


This class is taught by:

Rebecca Sandlin

I have been practicing yoga for 7 years and teaching for 5. I was a professional dancer for a number of

years and because of that in my classes I love to play with the idea of fusing a more fluid movement with

the poses. I believe in a yoga practice that challenges people to grow physically, mentally, and

spiritually. I believe that our bodies were created to move and therefore we should take the time to

experiment with our limitations and exceed past the boundaries that we give ourselves.

PHILOSOPHY
Our greatest challenge: to align with what is. Jacob seeks to prescribe an embodied philosophy - philosophy not of the mere intellect, but an integrated, non-dualistic living wisdom. To this end, his classes are thoughtful in form and content, designed to move and expand you whilst sweating out the New York nonsense.

 PHILOSOPHY


In order to enter a state of grace, or even visit it for a moment, we must begin to pay attention to what is—to connect. Whether the present moment is as we (or others) think it “should” be is not a concern in yoga. Yoga relieves us from that judgement. It requires us to express from a clearer version of ourselves; to gain perspective. Do not underestimate the power of this clarity; to promote and attract compassion, joy, strength, and a reflective intelligence.
