In this all-levels Vinyasa class we use a clear 4-part Breath (Inhale-Retain-Exhale-Retain) as a means to decide which variations of the postures to take. Committing to the options that permit the breath and the bandhas to remain steady is the process of cultivating Yoga. When we make choices that are for the sake of the posture or that forsake the breath, the process becomes Roga. Roga literally means disease in Ayurveda, but also indicates what happens when Yoga engages regularly with the mental forces of Rajas – active, impassioned energy.
Sera’s clear and honest voice is captivating. Beginner or advanced, it does not matter what level your practice is at, her classes are suited for everybody.
I was exhausted, overweight, depressed, and becoming hopeless.During our time together, Sera listened to my long-list of ailments and asked insightful questions. Not once did I feel hurried or dismissed. Sera is a gifted teacher and healer and I am thankful to have her guidance.
Her clear instruction, depth of knowledge (which extends far beyond the physical asana practice), has been a gift to our community.
