In my next steps as a yoga instructor I, CC YOGA owner: Brittany, am grateful that I have to attend atleast 5 different styles of yoga classes and write a paper about them. Last week I went to my first Kundalini Yoga class where I made 3 new friends, who introduced me to a whole other style of yoga: Partner Yoga! I have two words for partner yoga: SO FUN! I’ve been grinning for days since our little class led by Aubree Walsh (she’s the one in the orange top).
Ava, the border collie was very very helpful!
I love going upside down for “regular” yoga inversions like headstand and handstand, but being held upside down is restorative and invigorating!
And then we got did airplane like we were kids, except I think we look a little more advanced now!
I’m also super stoked that my new BFF, Anne Talhelm, was there to capture the fun! She had an upcoming gig to shoot for Lululemon in the Lakewood Dance Academy (a.k.a. CC Yoga’s beautiful home until we find a property), here in Lakewood, CO, so she was getting a sense of the lighting in the space.
The grand finale pose was wild! To get into this hanging-bahhdo-konasana-like-thing you start in airplane, then you tuck yourself thru their legs to bring your body out the other side (it’s a hilarious process!). But the end result is super fun and is restorative to hang upside down like this!
After this session I went to teach my Wednesday night dance classes to 11 to 15 year olds. We didn’t dance that night. We did partner yoga and every single one of my students was able to to this last pose! With some help/spotting from their teacher, of course!
Stay tuned… CC YOGA will be hosting a partner yoga workshop in February. It’s waaaaay too fun not to share!!!!
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Brittany is kind and thoughtful. She makes the new learner feel comfortable and builds on the practice of advanced students. She demonstrates the different modifications so you can benefit through each movement. She is easy to understand and knows how to approach each individual so you can always leave with something that you accomplished and/or learned. She is easy to talk with and her love for yoga is contagious.
This is the coolest place. I built my own bamboo bike here and Russ, who led the workshop, was so awesome. Possibly one of the coolest things I've ever done. My bike is a single speed, but rides so smooth, and dare I say better than my Specialized. It's super light, sexy as f&#$, rides soft but solid. Russ was really cool and patient and let me go in whenever I fancied to make tiny adjustments here and there. Money especially well spent. And I can't wait to build my next one. I'm seriously addicted and really proud of what I was able to produce. #Lifegoals
