“Cora Wen is a wonderful and gifted instructor who has excellent workshops and intensives across the world... ”
“I was very inspired by the way you led with the spirit of silence, how you incorporated play, and also how you wove that into the “practice” of our everyday lives. Walking away, I feel that I received something very special and yet, I could not put my finger on it. I am honored to have met you and hope our paths cross again.”
Classes are sequenced so they can prepare and open the body for asana and pranayama practice. We focus on postures to strengthen and increase flexibility, while building a solid foundation for continued practice.
Slow and mindful movement allows us to be guided from within, creating a lighthearted approach to asana. This can begin to bring a sense of wellness and harmony both on and off the mat. Preparing classes this way helps challenging poses become easier and "easy" poses more interesting...
Cora is committed to the practice of yoga and believes fitness and healing are byproducts of yoga; the actual purpose is to awaken our highest potential as human beings. Her workshops and classes are an environment to expand, explore and challenge your body, mind and spirit.
