I had the delight of attending Amber's Vinaysa class last night at Yoga Jones.
She has developed the sweetest style of offering a pattern and then allowing the members of the class to repeat it at their own pace and style. It is totally stunning that she has found a place of such spacious grace so early in her teaching. It takes immense confidence and trust to allow a room full of people to connect on their own without her telling them exactly how they should connect.
She had four patterns with transitional work and lots of flexibility in between regarding the vinyasas. I am writing this from memory this morning, so I might not have it exact.
We began seated.
Box Pose Side Stretch and Forward Fold (Both Sides with Slumpy Dandasana inbetween)
Pattern One From Dog
Deep Hip Stretch
(Repeat Pattern One other side and then again on both sides)
Twisting High Lunge
Reverse Prayer High Lunge
Warrior 3 with reverse Prayer
(Repeat Pattern Two Other Side and then again on both sides)
Back to All Fours
Repeat Pattern 3 Towards Other Side
From All Fours
Deep Low Hip Opener
Repeat Pattern 4 the Other Side
Slowly Transition towards Savasana
