100% Organic, non GMO

Spirit Rising is 100% Organic. Each class is crafted for who is in the room and your specific personal needs.  There are no cookie cutter classes where each practice is the same old thing...

Our goal is that each time you come to the mat, you feel that we were talking only to you and that the class was tailored for exactly what you need.

Pose of the Week

Sometimes class, as yummy as it is, doesn't give you the opportunity to ask questions about being in the pose "right"... Lots of verbal directional cues, seeing someone next to you, watching the teacher, it can be a little over whelming and confusing.  Well if you have ever wanted to know more about how to do a pose, then this is the right place!  Each week we will detail a different pose. 



This week let’s look at Janu shirshasana...  head of the knee pose


This seated forward fold is a tease.  A big fat tease.  You would think its about getting your head to your knee - its not.  It is about the length of your spine, your front leg and opening the bent hip.  Easy enough, but there are a few tricks to the pose that will really make a difference!

The term Namaste is ubiquitius in the yoga pracice.  The mudra, the word, the feeling.  It is an icon of the total practice, the yogic way of life and of the roots from which the practice grew.  But do you know what it means?  I say namaste not because I am Hindu, or because thats what a yoga teacher says, but because I resonate with the feeling of the term.
