e-ryt 500 yoga teacher and teacher trainer based in brooklyn, ny.  i started practicing yoga up in boston in my late teens, immediately after a period of massive (less than healthy) weight loss, and just before...
(suggested props: two blocks, a blanket, a bolster/big pillow, and a sandbag or something else that weighs 5-10 pounds)

Bakasana (crow or crane pose) is one of the first arm balances that we all attempt to conquer in our yoga practice. In class today, we build on some of the work from last week's class (it's called Category Is Sun Salutations in the Kula Replay Library if you want to start there!) and add on to learn the building blocks of this fun arm balance!

(Basic/Int) Get in the Kula Flow! Kula style yoga is a deep, challenging practice that will make you stronger and more flexible on the outside and softer (and more flexible) on the inside. You are never too tight, too tall or too weak to begin. (There’s nothing we can do if you’re too much of a procrastinator to get here.) Open to beginners as well as those wanting a slower paced vinyasa class or those who wish to reconnect with the fundamentals of alignment and flow style yoga. Though we like to emphasize that these are not so much yoga basics classes (there are plenty of those around the city), as basic Kula style classes.
