Acclaimed yoga teacher Katy Appleton introduces two unique vinyasa flow practices inspired by the element of fire. These two 45-minute flows feature dynamic poses to cultivate strength and courage.
Solar: A challenging practice, incorporating core abdominals and arm balances for focus and presence, to revitalise you and empower your sense of clarity.
Lunar: While still challenging, this flow is a more subtle approach to the fire element. The arm balances and twists create warmth in the body for lightness and confident humility.
Katy Appleton brings to yoga more than 25 years of expertise in movement through ballet, Pilates, body tuning, breath and energy work. Katy's teaching is biomechanically savvy whilst fun and playful, bringing you to a deeper embodied self within your yoga practice.
