Saturday

10:45 : I Am a Tree (Studio 2)

Some days it’s hard to stand on two feet. So how do we find balance on one? Let’s become like a tree with strong roots and a steady trunk even when the winds of change blow our way. This flowing class takes us in and out of various balance poses and helps us find acceptance with whatever we have to offer. We will warm up with a strong, creative vinyasa flow and play with techniques for focus and centering. This is not a “work” shop. It is a “play” shop! Come prepared to sing, sweat and fall down as much as you’d like. We will make sure you get back up. 

 

14:30 : Bhakti Flow Master Class (Studio 2)

Experience extreme power flow yoga in a dynamic session designed to take the seasoned practitioner to a new level. This challenging class, wrapped in love and devotion, will introduce students to Bhakti Flow, Rusty’s signature freestyle vinyasa class. It is a prayer-filled dance to the Beloved. Come prepared to sing, sweat and flow!

 

Sunday

09:45 : How to Build a Boat (Studio 2)

Build the strongest foundation possible. Here is a really challenging vinyasa class designed to build strength in your legs and the entire core (intermediate to advanced track.) From the ankles to the ribs, we will tone and stretch it all!

From lunges to crunches, you can learn tools that can be used at home in order to safely and effectively build the strongest power yoga practice imaginable. These techniques will nourish your forward bends, deepen your backbends, strengthen the muscles around your spine and tone your entire midsection. This class is designed for all levels. Come prepared to sing and sweat… a lot.

09:00 : Bhakti Flow Master Class (2 Mälarsalen)

This is Rusty´s signature bhaktilicious vinyasa class that incorporates creative sequencing along with a hip and funky soundtrack. It is a transformational experience for all. Come prepared to sing and sweat and cry and laugh and love like never before.

 

16:30 : Love Unlimited (2 Mälarsalen)

Ideally, we aim to love all beings and all experiences unconditionally. But, dang, they can be really really really hard! Is this even possible to achieve as a mere mortal? I honestly don’t know, but simply aspiring towards this goal is very rewarding. I have found that when I direct my love in a specific devotional direction, it becomes much easier to eventually stretch this love beyond that initial focus. Bhakti Yoga delivers effective and enjoyable tools to do just this. We can love from the inside out or the outside in. Whatever works best for each and every one of us. Let’s sing and sweat and figure it out together!

 

Sunday

09:45 : Joyful Warrior (2 Mälarsalen)

sthira-sukham-āsanam (YS: II 46)
We are supposed to keep things steady and comfortable. Strong and soft. What???
The Joyful Warrior leads a life of peaceful strength. Ever ready to perform duty when duty is necessary, the Joyful Warrior harnesses every breath and action to bring compassion into every life opportunity. Duty is only defined between each individual and their creator. But compassion is the universal expression of kindness and the want to bring peace to all beings everywhere. Today we discover both duty and compassion in our poses. If we can’t feel something right in the pose, then we are doing it wrong. Let’s sing, sweat and flow together in the most fun loving way!

 

17:30 : Lullaby (2 Mälarsalen)

This all-levels mellow flow class is designed to bring students into state of deep relaxation by way of mindful movement meditation. This class is a love song to everyone we have ever known and to all those we will one day meet. It is a love song to our broken and hopeful hearts. And it is a love song to the Beloved. Come prepared for a very chilled flow with downtempo beats to carry us through. We will chant before we can’t.
