When I go into a class and The Notorious B.I.G. is playing I know somethings about to go down!!! I was asked to write about this class as it’s a new class on the schedule. Admittedly and if you’ve followed this blog or my live videos at all, I’m the laziest yogi alive. Some of the other times offered on this class are at 6:30 a.m. . . . it would take a tow truck to get me there. Sooooooooooooo I finally ventured into Kelsey’s Sunday class. The classes are taught by three different instructors depending on the day you go; Kelsey, Biatta, or Marley. All amazingly talented teachers in their own right so difficult to choose; luckily the time chose for me. First of all, Kelsey is a Physical Therapist as well as yoga instructor and to say she knows her stuff is an understatement. She’s also one of the most fit females I’ve ever seen so I felt like my Sunday donuts after weren’t going to have such a negative effect.
The class is a blend of yoga and weights with proper alignment always being emphasized. Small toning movements were also incorporated into some of the yoga postures in the most magical, stealthy way but I feel I won’t be able to walk tomorrow and I’m happy. Every muscle group was exerted and it was a full body workout; felt like my prana was flowin yo. The last few minutes we got our heart rate up and I didn’t realize it was the crescendo but I knew I was almost done and wondered if anyone else was.
By far this is one of the most brilliant and groundbreaking yoga classes I’ve ever been to. Many yogis go to the yoga studio and then also go to the gym or other fitness classes to focus more on the physical body. We did both here, I really got a workout in, felt very fatigued at the end. Kodawari once again has what nobody else has with instructors that are gems and found nowhere else but here at our home and i’m gonna yelp it from the rooftops!!!
“Yoga Sculpt” offerings are as follows: Tuesday/Thursday 6:30-7:20 a.m by Marley, Friday noon-12:50 by Biatta, Sunday 10:30-11:20 a.m by Kelsey
