Through a guided, poetic universe with a theme related to each practice we journey between perpetual movement, rest, release and free movement.

With shaking, jumping, dancing, intuitive movement (some yoga sometimes too), pilates, somatics and body weight training, not to mention a kick ass carefully curated playlist, this class is designed for anyone but especially yogis and will at best deliver a cathartic release, a great workout, sweat and a strong, resilient body.

Shake The Dust comes in 3 class types:

Opening to Grace:

Opening to Grace is an invocation class (beginner and basic level)It is about meeting ourselves where we are, getting in there/here and invoking a trust for life and where it is taking us.

Flow State:

Flow state is more cardio and intuitive/free movement class (intermediate level) It is a play between form and formlessness, container and spilling out of it.
