This is one of Garth's signature Shiva Vinyasa classes. Setting intentions and practicing gratitude, students move through a challenging and balanced flow with an emphasis on concentration and surrendering into the fire, in order to achieve a state of balance, letting go of the attachment to the ego, quieting the mind and working towards Self-realization. An opening ritual with guided meditation leads to sun salutations and a standing warm up sequence. This is followed by the essential poses; head balance, deep back bending, twisting poses, deep forward folds, shoulder stand, plow pose & the fish pose and a relaxing & healing final resting pose. This class often concludes with a seated pranayama practice and/or a seated meditation practice. Shiva Vinyasa classes are suitable for all levels. There are advanced variations as well as modifications for beginners.
