We will begin class with devotional poetry and mantra music accompanied by tropical ukulele and native charango. Followed by fluid wave of movements blended into a garland of poses on a thread of breath. Fluid vinyasa choreography movements remind us of the temporary nature of our lives, circumstances, and experiences. Music and mantra evokes innate feelings of Love, Compassion, and Gratitude. And for a dessert, relax and restore with an extended Shavasana, guided Loving-Kindness meditation with lush tapestry of soothing sound bath on the background.  Ignite magic in your journey of life.  Saturday - march 3rd - 12 pm - 2 pm    Vira Flow • Hero Flow - Practice Inspired by Martial Arts and Yoga  (2h)  Hero flow is a transformative, total sensory experience that goes beyond a traditional vinyasa class.

Relax and restore with an extended savasana accompanied by a soothing sound bath with chimes, flutes and more.  Topics covered:  Hip, hamstring and shoulders openers  Coordination  Core floor workout  Attention to precise body alignment  Core integration  Breath-awareness  *Bring a towel, an awesome attitude and be ready to have fun.   Saturday  3 pm - 5 pm    Happy Hips & Shoulders  (2h)   Urban dwellers live high pace, stressful lives. Each of us from the first breath we take undergoes various traumatic experiences. Negative emotions like fear and gilt, create zones of high density around hips and shoulders. We feel tight, limited, and stuck in our upper and lower bodies. Hips are closing and shoulders are slouching as we build protective shell to hide behind it. To be free, open and relaxed we need to release these zones. Experience the euphoria of freedom in your hips and shoulders through a systematic 6 directional opening routines. Come with a willing spirit and leave with lightness in your body!  All levels   Topics covered:  Directions of mobility for hips and knees  Directions of mobility for shoulders and elbows  4 levels of difficulty  Shukshma-vyama kriyas (warm ups)  Principal vinyasas  Bandhas & Mudras   Sunday - march 4th - 12 pm - 2 pm   Rock & Roll  (2h)  In this dynamic and playful workshop we will practice creative sequencing of classical and adapted yoga postures linked together by a Rocking Vinyasa.  Be ready to open your heart, soar with grace, and smile while flowing with love. You’ll experience spontaneous flow, as an exploration of free-form, breath-initiated movement to liberate life force and cultivate freedom of expression. By rolling continuously throughout the class we will massage the muscles of the back, relax and soften muscles of the para-spinal groove, allowing us to go deep into the backbends in the finishing set.  Surprise yourself with your deepest backbend yet in this vibrant, high-energy workshop.  Sunday - 3 pm 5 pm    Dream Meditation: Yoga Nidra + Sound Bath   Looking for a rest, relaxation, or to just get-away?  Yoga Nidra, or yogic sleep, is a healing practice that deepens relaxation, releases tension and helps to strengthen the immune system. It is a unique marriage of science and spirit. Take your brain on a spiritual exploration through Theta-wave Ocean into deep layers of your subconsciousness.     Experience the power of sound: mesmerizing singing bowls, magical flutes, romantic charango and enchanted chimes are used to captivate your mind, massage your soul and open your heart to higher frequencies of Loving- Kindness resonance. All the while you are guided to an inner journey to heal and harmonize your relationships: with yourself, your family and Universe.  This peaceful practice will leave you feeling grounded with a deeper connection to yourself.
