Dear Infinity Students,
Make sure you read through our schedule carefully this week: Mollee’s got subs for her classes and Eri’s SomaYoga is beginning this Tuesday. It’s Eri’s last series this year, so you don’t want to miss it.
We’re also excited about a new partnership with Bluff Country Co-op! Read more about this in the upcoming events.
Have a great week of practice!
Speaking of changes in our schedule, you will also find that Alanna’s class has changed names. It’s now Asana with Alanna. For those of you who know Alanna, you can imagine her delight at the alliteration! Even beyond the poetics, this name is a good a fit for her teaching style. In Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, asana is defined as a “steady, comfortable posture.” which describes Alanna’s teaching style perfectly!
Alanna’s training is in Vinyasa Yoga through Yogafit, but her personal practice and teaching is shaped by 15 years of Iyengar Yoga. Her classes feature Iyengar inspired alignment, and gentle Vinyasa cuing. Alanna often uses props in her teaching to help students support themselves in poses. Beginners have nothing to fear, as her classes move at an accessible pace, and Alanna is a pro at helping students find the right version of a pose for them.
Asana with Alanna is taught in an 8-week series as a way to help her experienced students build towards more complex poses, while still maintaining an accessible environment for the newbie. As Alanna discovered in her own practice, this kind of consistency has rewards. One week’s class sets you up for the next. Alanna describes her own experience with her teacher, Francie Ricks: “Many times I’d find myself craving poses without knowing it was the theme for that night’s class.” Alanna’s goal is to give her own students the opportunity to experience what a consistent rhythm of practice can do for them.
Though students are welcome to drop in any time, it is especially rewarding to attend all 8 classes in the series. For those of you planning to attending all 8, stay tuned: Alanna and I are creating some special pricing to reward you for your commitment. The next series will run November 29th – Jan 24th (no class Jan. 3rd).
This Week’s Class Themes
