Driving through pounding rain, slipping on the winding shoulders of rte 9, lost in Greg’s dreamy music, I am part of the world, at one with the trees and the rain and the notes. This ride is how I prepare for my Tuesday, 8:00am class with Kris D’Amico, who teaches a solid and energetic vinyassa flow at Village Yoga, on Front Street. I need to feel this solid movement. Don’t come if you don’t like heat. The Bikram room is normally heated to about 100˚, although the temperature is not jacked up as high for this class. The movement was welcome, considering the long holds I have recently been practicing. The sweating and the twists, the balance and the rest, the focus and the alignment. A necessary change for today, as I am needing to shake it.
Kris also teaches a class at 6:00am on Mondays, and 7:45pm on Thursdays. www.bikramyogasantacruz.com
