Influenced by the Kripalu classes that inspired Ilana to become a teacher, this class is an invitation to slow down and dive deep. This practice invites deep internal exploration utilizing more work with props, the wall , partner work, and the rhythmic flow of your breath. You are invited to use the practice as a way of becoming more present and sensitive to your body’s individual messages and needs. It encourages you to meet yourself exactly where you are and to customize the experience so that it feels good for you in that very moment. Feel free to come with questions and be ready to play!
