Shelter Strong (vinyasa)


This class is taught by:

Jessi Rock

Hi! My name is Jessi and to me yoga has been a life saver. Literally. My journey into yoga started just as I was beginning treatment for my own mental health issues. I was afraid to know my true self, let alone accept that I had something innately wrong with my brain chemistry. But yoga taught me that true love with the self begins with just being able to follow the breath. It taught me to find calm in the whirlwind of thoughts. The Yoga Shelter is a place where I could go and feel welcomed no matter what kind of day I was having or where my mind was. It was, and is, a sanctuary. I am excited to be able to share my experiences and my journey with all who walk through the door and help facilitate their own journey to the self. The Shelter truly is a place where you can come as you are. I hope to see you in class. Namaste.
Our signature hot vinyasa style, in a heated room. Have fun and empower yourself as you burn away the stress of the day. Prepare to sweat and increase both stamina and metabolism, as STRONG is a challenging, dynamic cardio-intensive practice at a faster pace. Sequences of continuous “flows” provide the opportunity to deepen breathing and detoxify body and mind as heat builds from within. Intelligent pose progression moves from basic to complex as we connect the movement to breath. Cues to maintain focus on alignment and sound structure to help work every muscle safely, increase flexibility and strength in the body. Students are led through a series of postures that “flow” together for a couple of rounds, then freedom is given to move and define your own pace, testing your own limits as you make your practice your own. Find your power, explore your edge and still have a little time to rest.
