Teri’s vinyasa classes are enjoyable, thoughtfully choreographed and appropriately paced flows of ashtanga- based postures (asanas) and movement with strong emphasis on proper alignment, breath, personal awareness and individual attention. Each session begins with relaxation using breath and gradual movement to bring focus and self-awareness to the practice and to help set intentions individually and as a unified group. Classes are an athletic, invigorating and challenging physical experience, with the beneficial outcome of calming the mind and relieving stress.
Clear, direct verbal cues and demonstration are used to lead the students through the flow of postures, focusing on building strength, flexibility and balance. Strong emphasis is placed on assisting the students in establishing safe and affective alignment.
