Weekend yoga

At Thrive Yoga, Dana Cohen was substituting for Susan, the studio owner, so I got a double dose of Dana’s hybrid style, vinyasa flow 2/3 on Saturday and vinyasa flow all levels today. I don’t think I could really tag Dana with a specific yoga brand (Iyengar, Ashtanga or Anusara). Or maybe she draws on multiple sources, both from yoga and beyond (Thai massage, for instance). Both classes were about the same intensity, but today’s pace was a bit slower since we were working on opening up hamstrings and hips. The constant in both classes was that Dana reserved a good 15 minutes to savasana/meditation at the end. Of all my teachers, she is the most reliable for fitting in that cool down phase.
