Full Bio & Programs
For students who have practiced asana for at least 1 year and have some experience with vinyasa.
Your center. Your emotional brain. The physical heart of your yoga practice. Your belly. Is it strong, supple, and open? This program offers a chance to detox, energize, and become centered in your yoga practice by uniting vinyasa with uddiyana bandha (the abdominal lock). Strengthening and opening the belly through active uddiyana bandha practice is also a powerful tool for back care and digestive health.
Schuyler Grant developed Kula Flow, a vinyasa style that integrates the breath-based flow of Ashtanga and the precision of Iyengar into a deep, sweaty, and transformative mind-body experience. This weekend will include four flow practices in which we will explore
- Uddiyana bandha and pranayama (breathing) techniques
- Inversions and arm balances initiated from the “flying up” lock
- Twisting and backbending at a new level of depth and support
- Moving from flow to flight in your vinyasa practice.
You will also be encouraged to participate in a gentle dietary cleanse through simply prepared options influenced by macrobiotics from the Kripalu Kitchen. This long weekend takes ‘spring cleaning’ to a whole new level.
