Yogic Arts™

Yogic Arts™ integrates the core strength and joint conditioning elements of Buddhist Gung-Fu [healing martial arts], the fluidity and purification of Ashtanga Vinyasa [breath-motion yoga], and the healing touch of traditional Thai Therapy [yoga massage].

The Yogic Arts™ system is comprised of the sequencing of classical standing asanas [poses], infused with martial art and modern dance stance integrations, therapeutic kicking drills, a core floor workout, a deeply therapeutic hip and shoulder opening sequence, and a traditional vinyasic finishing practice, which includes elements of Thai massage and guided meditation. Each practice focuses on different aspects of the respective integration of massage, martial arts, and yogic technique, as we explore the evolution of asana and vinyasa [posture and movement]

 

Krama Vinyasa

Krama Vinyasa Yoga, an ancient system of physical, psychological and spiritual development. Krama Vinyasa is a Sanskrit term that means the optimal sequencing of events. Krama Vinyasa (movement and sequence methodology) was brought back to use and prominence by Sri T. Krishnamacharya.  Vinyasa is breath synchronized movement seamlessly united with the intention of Self Realization, Krama is a sequential process designed to awaken inherent divine energy (Shakti). When practicing Krama Vinyasa the breath and movement are seamlessly united in such a way that each action encourages and supports the other, like each note supports the next one to create a symphony. Your body joins with your breath to create a vehicle for peace.  As long as we are in this body, life is changing- artfully explore the transitions and MOVE WITH GRACE.
