Enjoy this musically immersive experience with the Trap Vinyasa™ monthly pop-up series at Root Yoga! Laced with trap music, a heavy beat-based genre of rap originating from the South, Trap Vinyasa™ is a series of high-energy yoga fitness classes combining dynamic asana with sensual dance, boxing and HIIT.
Designed to help you release body dysmorphia while discovering self-acceptance, these classes empower you to rewrite the story you’ve been told about your body.
The sanskrit word Surya means sun and Series II of the Trap Vinyasa™ collection is all about accessing the sun or heat of the belly through dynamic breath work, core exercises, yoga and dance. The core houses the 3rd chakra located between the solar plexus and the navel, and known as Manipura or the jewel in the city, it’s here that our expression of will, personal power and identity are held. As a result, in order to access our confidence and self-worth we need to activate the 3rd chakra.
Register for this class by December 7th for $30 / Registration after December 7th is $35.
