Saturday, April 9
In the first half of this class, slowly wake up and open your body with a sequence of long-held, passive yin poses, a style of yoga designed to increase mobility and flexibility by targeting the fascia and connective tissues, meanwhile connecting you with your inner world through its meditative quality of stillness. In the second half of class, invite movement into your body with a flowing vinyasa sequence, a style of yoga characterized by active postures and an emphasis on connecting breath to movement.
This class is suitable for all levels of practitioners | modifications will be offered throughout so you can discover what feels right for your body.
Suggested props: 2 blocks, a strap, and a blanket or pillow (if you don't have blocks you can replace them with some books and if you don't have a yoga strap you can replace it with a belt of scarf).
Improve posture, stability, torsion, timing, and fluidity, while deepening your awareness of how you move in tango, all of which allows you to connect with your partner, dance more smoothly, and express the music more deliberately and consciously.
This class will consist of solo exercises suitable for all levels of dancers. No partner is necessary to join this class.
Although each class will function as a separate class that can totally be done without attending the other, those who attend both will find the yoga class ideally suited to what we'll be working on in the tango class.
