Open the channels of energy around your heart in no time at all! Heart Opening Flow is a Level 2/3, 20-­minute class led by Lauren, and promises to build heat while focusing on cardio training, backbends, balancing poses, and super sweaty flow. Peak yoga poses include Natarajasana and Chapasana, both of which are incredibly heart­ healthy.

Natarajasana, or Lord of the Dance Pose, is a fun standing posture designed to stretch the shoulders, chest, groins, thighs, and abdomen while improving balance and strengthening the legs and ankles. Chapasana, or Sugarcane Pose, is a standing and balancing posture created to improve core strength while strengthening and stretching the hamstrings and quadriceps.

Take 20 minutes out of your busy day to join Lauren and enjoy the deep relaxation that results. We all need a break sometimes, and yoga is an exceptionally healthy way to let go of frustration.

Challenge yourself to keep your heart open....whether in this practice or any other time!
