Growing a Lotus
This well-aligned and dynamic vinyasa class taught by Shannon Paige is based on the wisdom of strength and container-ship in asana form and transition before any application of momentum. Shannon roots this class in the earthly seed qualities that will bloom in stages from simple to complex. The benefits of this progression of seated postures is a radical rooting of the head of the femurs deep into the socket, creating not just more easily opened hips but a quiet, soothing, and serene experience. Shannon progresses towards Lotus pose in one of the soundest and safest means possible to protect and respect the knees and ankles. Knees are the boss!
