"For me, teaching yoga is sharing the art of living free - mind, body and spirit. Guiding people to the edge of their comfort zones and breathing with them in that space is one of my favorite places to be. I am a bit of an extreme artist, so I like to go all the way into the asanas and see what happens. I like to dance on the edge of discomfort and find the breath there...this is how I teach."

Kelsi Zahl instructs the following:
WARM ~ A slower vinyasa flow similar to hot class but with less intensity and heat. A step between beginner and hot flow.
HOT! ~ A power vinyasa class emphasizing a dynamic flow of challenging poses. A vigorous practice-YOU WILL SWEAT! Monday 5:45 pm and Friday 8:45 am are 75 minute classes.
Recommended for experienced yogis, although beginners are welcome to participate keeping in mind modifications and pace for your level of activity. Bring a towel and water in a closed container.
The Empowerment Practice
Extended asana practice with deep work in pranayama and bandha activation.
Each breath and yoga posture depends on the strength of the spine as guided by the bandhas (deep muscle locks). We will dive deep into our untapped strength by working through over 60 postures from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
Please fast from food for at least 3 hours prior to class.
