Twist and Cleanse with Pranayama
Twisting is not only a great way to cleanse the body, but when done on a deeper level, it becomes a mental and spiritual cleanse. We will stabilize our core muscles first before we move into twists ringing out toxicity in our bodies and mind. The result of this type of practice is a calmer, more stable energy that creates a space for a quieting pranayama practice at the end. This class will be taught as a vinyasa flow class with music ending with quieting pranayama and a long deep relaxation.
