Yogic Lore: The Stories Behind the Poses
with Kimi Marin
Sat, May 20
Mythology is a narrative that explains how the world, and all its inhabitants, came to exist and are often used to teach and establish behavioral models. Similarly, in yoga, the poses we embody are part of a richly diverse spiritual tradition. Many of the philosophies, rituals, and poses of yoga are adapted from various texts and myths.
In this transformative 2-hour Hatha flow class, you will explore mudras (hand gestures), pranayama (breath control), and meditation, all the while you move and flow to the stories that inspired the poses. Delve deep within as you tap into your inner warrior, rise out of dark shadows into lotus, and shed stifling layers in cobra pose.
with Kristina Coco-Hackenjos
5-7pm Sat, May 6
Come to Vino Vinyasa with Kristina for a truly multi-sensory experience! We will begin with a vinyasa flow yoga class, mindfully moving the body in sync with the breath. We will play with balance, strength, and flexibility to begin the process of awakening all five senses. Kristina will bring her Essential Oils to pique your sense of smell. Josh (Kristina’s oh-so-talented husband) will provide live music to guide you into the rhythm of sound. After the one-hour class, with awakened senses, it’s time to tantalize the taste buds with wine and chocolate tasting. Mingle with fellow yogis from our community while enjoying lite snacks, wine and chocolate. Must be 21 years old or older to taste the wine.
