Kara Golux, RYT 500, has been practicing yoga since 1987 and teaching since 2008. Blending both dynamic and restorative approaches, Kara's teaching is informed by studies in a range of Hatha Yoga styles, including Iyengar, Astanga, Kripalu, Yin Yoga, Insight Yoga and Shadow Yoga. Initially cross-training for her work as a professional dancer, then a path of spiritual integration, yoga remains for Kara the primary method for restoring the innate qualities of vibrancy, clarity and spaciousness to body, heart and mind. With extensive studies in anatomy, physiology, ideokinesis, and the five element system of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Kara invites a playful inquiry toward rediscovering somatic patterns of support, suppleness and flow. To assist in the cultivation of the subtle body, Kara incorporates Buddhist meditation practices of calm-abiding and clear-seeing. Additionally Kara has been a licensed massage therapist and shiatsu practitioner since 1994. Kara delights in sharing the expansive stillness and energetic brightness available through the practice of yoga.
This Friday evening practice will be gentle. Kara will lead us into A gentle yin-within-yang practice. All practices will take place at HSY East, above the Trax Outdoor Center.
