    Yoga Arts 2

Carol’s Vinyasa style is challenging, creative, anatomically focused and fun. This week’s asana will be a combination of led classes and self practice classes with Carol adjusting. It is a time to immerse your self deeper into your body, mind and heart. These classes are only suitable for teachers, trainees and advanced Vinyasa practitioners.
Carol will also teach the other yoga arts subjects which help practitioners integrate their experiences of the weeks consciously and with support. Carol will finish off an Osho-inspired Kundalini Trance dance practice, which is a meditative process, where you take your sadhana onto the dance floor.
