Springtime Unlimited Yoga Offer!

“It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems
 by heart.” ― Rainer Maria Rilke

 We are so relieved to see the sun finally making a solid and consistant appearance! Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and your body is calling out for some movement and attention! Spring is the season of vibrant new growth, it's lush, wet, warm, and sometimes muddy. Just like us, on our mats. The plants and flowers struggle before they get to blossom in the warm sun, just like we do, both on the mat and off the mat.

 Loka would like to support your blossoming with a
Springtime Unlimited Class Pass for only $99 a month!
 You can commit to your growth and practice now. 
Be solid and consistant, just like the sun. The only catch here is 
that you have to sign up this week, once it's gone, it's gone.... 


Loka's Springtime Unlimited Class Pass

 “All the buried seeds crack open in the dark the instant they surrender to a process they can’t see.” — Mark Nepo




This is a 12 month committment, but of course we are flexible (we are yogis!)
 if you need to cancel before the 12 months are up.

A Detoxifying Flow for Spring

Allow this three hour Detoxifying Spring Flow practice to cleanse your body and spirit of residual winter sluggishness. Twisting and massaging the digestive system allows for a fresh sense of clarity and lightness, creating the space to also flush and recharge our energy channels. Together we will consciously create fluidity with a solid presence, grounding ourselves in preparation for flight.

The Ayurvedic Kapha season, which includes late winter and first part of spring, is governed by the elements of Earth and Water, and is characterized by cold, wet, heavy and "sticky" qualities. This can manifest itself in various forms of stagnation in our bodies, hearts, and minds, including respiratory congestion, sluggish digestion, lowered metabolism and immune system, lack of motivation and seasonal depression. This strengthening and energizing sequence will help uplift the downward pull of the Kapha energy, setting the ground of your renewal, rejuvenation and well-being.

This Detoxifying Spring Flow will help you flush out any winter congestion, re-gain vitality, and feel a sense of awakening, renewal and balance. In yoga, twists are essential for detoxing, as the internal organs are cleansed and the spine is ‘rung out,' encouraging lots of blood flow and an invigorated nervous system.

In addition to firing up the body and getting our heart rate up, we will also focus on nourishing the energy channels — the nadis and the meridians — that support the liver, the gallbladder and the kidneys. This thorough spring cleaning will flush and charge all of your physical, emotional, and energetic systems. You may be a little sore the next day, but it will be well worth the challenge.
