Marital arts with a difference. Muay Thai based striking. we are here to work hard and work together. This is a non competitive environment where we are learning for ourselves, not for competition. These sessions will incoporate everything you would find in your gym/martial arts studio but with a traditional "dojo" feel. We will hit pads, work strength & fitness and get some sparring in. But we will also incorporate Breath-work and meditation into each session. We will work with spiritual goals a little higher on the agenda. We will encourage those that feel timid and nervous. We will avoid injury so that we may "live to fight another day".
An evening flow
A flow that Changes with the seasons. In the darker months we build heat slowly, warmed by the fire. We hold poses that little bit longer and move well without going to deep. As the winter passes and the light is with us we move deeper and faster with more complex trasitions. But no matter when you come or what level your practice is at this class will always be a challenge.
An advanced vinyasa flow
This class will traverse the numerous sun salutations, inversions, back-bends and twists that I have put together as the Mana & Wak Sequence. If you're a well practiced physical yogi the series will feel familiar but unlike most vinyasa classes you will have attended in the past.
Move, flex, open
Stretching and mobility are not to be confused with "flexibility". This class is about opening up your edge, your personal end range motion in your tissue and joints. Of course this is how flexibility is built but getting a huge back-bend it not the focus of this class. This is more about everyday mobility. You sit in front of a computer or drive a lot? This class is for you. Or, are you an acrobat, martial artist that just needs some time to get into all the knots and blocks... this class is also for you.
Intermediate to advanced
In this class we will warm up together and then workshop all things on our hands and forearms. We will also look at all the weird and wonderful transition in and out of these balancing postures. Once we've exhausted our arm and shoulders we will slide gracefully into working on all things flexibility. This is an open format class. We help, suggest things to, and inspire each other through a very fun two hours
