Downtempo Heart Vinyasa with Raphaela Fritz

Join Raphaela in a new exploration of Vinyasa. Enjoy the flow of femininity while staying attuned to the masculinity of structure. She blends her deep knowledge and wisdom of alignment and bio-mechanics with the love for pranic filled emanation. This is a dynamic blend, combining systems of alignment with the creative allowance for personal expression. Come uncover and shake off the weighty layers we accumulate in our day to day lives. Get your yoga on to Downtempo electronic music, finding your individual flux and groove in the company of friends.
Bring a date, bring a friend, bring yourself as we dance through the asanas. Get ready to move, sparkle, and shine! 
Some yoga experience encouraged yet there will always be variations and modifications available for students working with limitations or wanting to take their practice to the next level.
