Tapas, one of the Niyamas, is said to be a way to purify body and mind through discipline, fiery resolve and pointed strength. By igniting our inner fire, our Agni, we can burn away impurities, negative thought patterns, emotional baggage and negative energy. This class is a full body, challenging, breath-led and dynamic Vinyasa flow, especially working into our core and with twists to help connect to our abdominals. Stay with it and breathe! We finish with a few quiet and calm postures to release body and mind so you leave this class feeling refreshed.
Equipment: Optional 1 Yoga Block

"Don't push yourself too hard in class. Always listen to your body and what it needs. Stop if you are in pain. Make sure you have a safe open place to practice and that you consult a health professional for advice on injuries, conditions or illness."
