This asana yoga class is designed with the interests of dancers and theatre students in mind. Various categories of postures will be practiced, with attention to alignment, breathe awareness, strength, and flexibility. Emphasis is placed on mindfulness and presence. This approach allows the student to gain tools for reducing stress and addressing other unsupportive habits to carry into other aspects of their lives. The instructor has a background in dance and theatre in addition to various somatically based practices, which she draws upon for designing the classes to meet the needs of the class members. Her class draws upon an alignment-oriented practice, as opposed to a vinyasa style of yoga. Additionally, this class introduces various awareness-building practices borrowed from other body-oriented approaches.
