Yoga On the Road
One of the things I love the most about traveling is that I take the opportunity to check out different yoga studios. I believe that my practice has become very well rounded because I seek out so many different teachers and styles. Of course my favorites have always been Astanga and intense vinyasa flow as they suit my personality. This weekend I am in the Gaslamp district of San Diego. The incredible studio I practiced in this morning is Infinite Yoga. I took the advanced Improv class.
Here is how studio owner Dana (whom was also my teacher!) describes the class:A challenging & dynamic flowing series with impeccable sequencing and an in-depth weekly focus (hips, backbends, arm balancing, etc.). Combine prep work with the more challenging postures of Primary (1st), Intermediate (2nd), and Advanced A (3rd) Series along with inspiration from Forrest Yoga. Integrate a deeper breath & longer holds, move beyond boundaries and reach new levels in your practice!
Wow! Dana is awesome. She is dynamic, authentic, and beautiful! I rarely sweat in any yoga class unless I am at Bikram or other hot yoga classes. By the time class was over, I was drenched! Gotta love detoxing! This one was very powerful, fast moving, and a perfect blend of poses that left me smiling, grounded and balanced in all the good ways. A few aches and pains I came into class with were miraculously gone as well as I floated out of the door. The wonderful thing is, I am headed back tomorrow for another AM session! If you ever find your way to San Diego and are looking for a fabulous studio check out Inifinite Yoga!
