CHOOSE LOVE - Backbends & Heart Openers:

Enjoy the energy of a vigorous back bending class. Back bending opens our heart to love and moves one into the future.

We are obsessed with the concept of LOVE. We are all driven by it and innately feel the need to love and be loved. The heart is perhaps the most significant chakra center as it attends to our need for love, joy, connection, happiness, etc... It is the hardest chakra to pierce and is the most easily damaged, or shut down and/or wounded by life, relationships, separation, grief, sorrow, and resentment. The irony is that the heart doesn't literally "break," but "breaks open" as an expansion for holding even more love.

Our task is to both to heal the heart and allow it to shine forth from a more fulfilled and whole place within ourselves. Through the heart, we heal ourselves, others and the world around us while intuitively connecting to our own sense of what it means to love unconditionally. This class will focus on several back bending asanas, progressing from simple to more advanced. All levels welcome.

This will be a 90 minute class, followed by some sharing & reflection time sponsored by Lululemon and Granola Geeks. Take in this special moment post-yoga and savasana, to connect with other like-minded beautiful souls. In this moment of love and warmth, in an inspiring setting, surrounded by soulful music, we will take some time to share in small circles how we can feel and express even more love in our lives to uplift the world we share. Together, let's fill ourselves up with love to share with KL :)

This class follows a 90 minute class the previous night, Fire & Fly! Inversions & Arm balances - Master Class #2 with Carol Issa & Michael Hewett, Saturday, March 18, 10-11:45am.
