Natural Dynamics

 

Architectural Chair Yoga


Want to break free of the house, the yoga mat and of familiar patterns? Natural Dynamics is a unique practice held both in and outside of the studio. After a thorough warm up inside we will lightly jog a half mile to Fairmount Park. The outdoor practice will combine running, jumping, quadrupedal groundwork, vaulting, pulling, hanging and other forms of natural movement that are specific to the environment. Intense but accessible, Natural Dynamics is for anyone interested in moving freely and without fear in the outdoors.

Students should be comfortable running .5 miles (at any pace) 

Please Wear Running Shoes and Weather Appropriate Attire to Class


Sometimes on a Chair, sometimes standing. We will deal with the dynamics of folding and unfolding and learning the building blocks of how to get up and down from the floor safely and efficiently.

Class is encouraged for students of all levels and particularly those who are challenged by a conventional practice.
