Pump up your yoga practice with Cari! In this Cross Training Yogi Class we will warm up, explore strength training yoga poses, and then run or walk around belt line for up to two miles (your choice on how far to go) Afterwards, we'll cool down and stretch on our mats.
Inversions set yoga apart from other physical disciplines: they allow us to see things from an alternate perspective, guide the energy of the pelvis toward the heart center, and stimulate the immune and endocrine systems, invigorating and nourishing the brain and the organs. When done correctly, inversions also release tension in the neck and the spine. They also are a fun way to challenge your balance to get outside your comfort zone. If you've ever been overwhelmed by the thought of going upside down, this workshop will help you build a foundation to overcome the fear of inverting by breaking down the fundamentals into easy steps. We'll explore the basics of headstand, handstand and more as we cultivate strength, flexibility, to tap into our own confidence and progress in our physical practice.
Join Cari for a Wanderlust108 Stretch/Jog/Yoga class at Active Sol. We’ll start with a warm-up stretch at the studio, then head out the door to take a quick jog/walk on the Beltline behind the studio, and then end with a cooling yoga session. Bring running shoes and your yoga mat! FREE!
Enjoy a rejuvenating yoga session heightened by essential oils with Cari. Combining essential oils with yoga can allow you to find a clearer state of mind with deeper focus, clarity, and calmness. Join Cari for a relaxing practice with props, oils, and your intentions. This is a restorative class that will allow you to let go, so you can make room for the new.
The benefits of any meditation practice are numerous: lower stress hormones, increased productivity, stronger immune system and better focus, to name a few. The practice of yoga nidra softly introduces itself to even the most avid skeptic. This February reset yourself with the practice of "yogic sleep."
We will be spending 30 minutes warming the body up with gentle yoga (asana) then settling into savasana for a 30 minute guided meditation experience. Yoga nidra guides the mind through the physical body allowing for extreme relaxation and a complete reset of the nervous system. By far the best hour you can spend for mind/body self care!

One of the most profound ideas found in yogic philosophies, Sthira Sukham Asanam. Patanjali explains that every yoga posture needs to be balanced with qualities of Sthira (steady, stable, effort, steadfast) and qualities of Sukham (ease, delight, and joy). This practice is created to expand on the idea beyond even the postures themselves and weave these powerful concepts practically, off the mat and into your everyday life.
Flow through an active, creative vinyasa sequence, designed to build the alignment necessary for breath and prana to flow easily through the body, which can lead to a joyful practice. Even though the movement is challenging, you'll delight in the strength and grace with which the body moves on your behalf.
Prepare to work legs, core, arms. Explore postures to open hips, chest and shoulders. Think juicy supple body that is now ready for stillness. The class concludes with long yoga nidra (yoga sleep).
Prepare to relax your eye lashes. Yoga nidra is a systematic meditation designed to guide the mind into a deep, restorative state. Journey through the extremes to understand the underlying oneness of duality, because it is only through experience that you gain understanding.
