Flow, Form, & Restore.png

Flow & Form

This replenishing yoga class strikes a balance of Sthira & Sukham (effort & ease). It is inspired by classical yoga, alignment & anatomical study, breath-based flow, functional movement, and somatic practices. You will explore and experiment with yoga props as a way to offer feedback, support, and nourishment to your body. 

You will begin with supported sliding & gliding movements that build into some combination of standing poses, seated postures, supported arm balances, and inversions for all levels. You will frequently use the wall and yoga chairs to approach the yoga poses in unique ways.

Flow, Form, & Fire

This dynamic class begins with a series of supine movements that tend the fires of attention and awareness. It offers a unique combination of sliding & gliding, vinyasa flow, alignment instruction, functional movement, and prop involved explorations. The heat will build as you explore surya namaskar (sun salutations) and asanas (postures) with resistance, traction, and glide to challenge your foundation and ask more of your internal strength.

 A full spectrum of standing poses, seated postures, arm balances, and inversions for all levels will allow you to move in a variety of ways. You will use props in a way that creates resistance and asks you to activate and explore.

I have been a devoted student of Dawn since 2013. Her yoga classes are the perfect synergy of alignment, meditation and core work. Her thoughtfulness and passion shows through in every class and her hands-on assists are divine. I feel so lucky to have a teacher like Dawn in Santa Cruz!!
