A well-aligned and dynamic vinyasa class practiced and taught by Shannon Paige, is based on the wisdom of strength and container-ship in form and transition before any application of momentum. This class is based on the richness of Sankalpa, intention, which is only as strong as the actions that support it, the attention of a student to the postures and transitions that speak for it. This practice will strengthen a student’s understanding of the progression of side plank, its capacity as a great teacher, and the core stabilization of backbending. The end result is the flight of a baby kapinjalasana, a backbend on top of a side plank, confidence, and fully spread wings of the heart that match the clear flight of focus in the mind.
