Each class, regardless of style, will be a conscious physical and meditative journey focused on some aspect of the human experience. Beyond simple themes or repetitive sequencing, Illumina teachers will approach each layer of the journey — from body through to spirit — in a full spectrum approach igniting yogic experiences that dive beyond and through asana into the heart of what it means to be human.
Illumina Flow is a vinyasa style class with a strong unified intention that is carried throughout the class on all layers including the asana. An Illumina class will feel like a journey with the purpose of illuminating some facet of what it means to be human & offering specific tools for reflection and transformation. Expect mantra, moving metaphor, music, Kundalini elements and shamanic principles to be present in some form. This class is recommended for those with a strong foundational practice who love to explore.
