Classes

 

Vinyasa Flow All Levels

 

Vinyasa Flow at Mud And Lotus is a fun, open level class that challenges body and mind with an emphasis on stretching in classical Vinyasa Yoga format. 

In this class we start where we are and remember; Your 100% today may not be what it was yesterday, or what it will be tomorrow, and it will definitely not be the same as your neighbor's 100%. In this space we lovingly embrace where we are, our starting point, the mud, and accept and appreciate our current circumstances for giving us the launching pad of our potential for growth. You are exactly where you are supposed to be. And we'd love to have you in class. 

 

Vinyasa: The word “vinyasa” can be translated as “arranging something in a special way,” like yoga poses for example. In vinyasa yoga classes, students coordinate movement with breath to flow from one pose to the next. Ashtanga, Baptiste Yoga, Jivamukti, Power Yoga, and Prana Flow could all be considered vinyasa yoga.

Essentrics with Betty

  

Essentrics is also known as "Classical Stretch" on American Public Television. It is a pioneering anti-aging workout, one that strengthens and lengthens from head to toe through continuous, rotational movements. Unlike many workouts that focus on only muscles and bones, Essentrics also conditions our joints and fascia (connective tissues). Distilled from Tai Chi, ballet, and physiotherapy but far more accessible with quick, visible results, Essentrics leaves you toned, pain-free, balanced, and energized. Great for men and women of all ages and all levels.
