Turn Your Crown Upside Down with Inversions

Sunday, December 14th, 12:30pm

Yes, we will handstand. You are guaranteed to understand the elements of your personal handstand practice after this 90-minute class focusing on building body control when upside down. Learn how to use your hands, hips and shoulders to find proper alignment in headstand, handstand and forearm balance. Learn tools for practicing safely "away from the wall" so you can incorporate inversions into your practice each time you come to your mat.

Bethany believes adding elements of inversions in every practice is what will ultimately allow you to feel command of these postures, and she will show you how to do this on your own.

The Sivananda Classical Program

Sunday, January 11th, 12:30pm

This is an incredibly profound, deeply meditative 2-hour class to bring you into a state of total relaxation and rejuvenation. Designed by medical doctor Swami Sivananda and passed down through his disciple Swami Janakananda to his direct student - Julie Rader - to Bethany, this practice is a treasured tradition within Mukti Yoga School. This class is best experienced rather than described; it involves holding various asanas from universal twist to headstand with several savasanas incorporated into the practice. While all are welcome, sone yoga experience is recommended as holding postures for several minutes can be taxing on a new student.
