Happy August Everyone! Have you heard? A new B3 sequence and playlist launched yesterday and we are excited to start sharing it with you all. Keep reading to learn more about what B3 is and what you can expect from the newest launch.
What is B3?
B3 is a system of yoga that will eventually involve 3 tiers of classes, B1, B2 and B3. We launched B3 (the class) back in June and are still working on B1 and B2. For now, lets talk about B3 (the class).
B3 is an advanced vinyasa flow, but don't let the word, "advanced" scare you. While this class gives you the opportunity to explore more advanced asanas, we always encourage you to honor your body and your "edge" by modifying and resting as needed.
A New System of Yoga
This class is different from others in that it is set to music and incorporates more creative sequencing. You can expect the same sequence & playlist for 6-8 weeks before we switch things up. Each sequence has a focus pose and theme, adding purpose and structure to your class. It also includes 2 opportunities for "yogi play time" where you can work on any pose you'd like (Yes, that includes Child's Pose : ) Our goal is to create an intentional and consistent experience balanced with possibility and exploration.
Collaboration Is Key
We really want this new class to become a collaborative effort. Give us your feedback! What would you like to see more of? less of? Are there certain songs you'd like us to incorporate? Leave out? What about a focus pose recommendation? Your input is important so please feel free to share!
An Interactive Learning Experience
B3 is intended to become an interactive learning experience for both the student and the teacher. Every new launch will be accompanied by blog posts, tutorial videos and discussions about why we are doing what we are doing and how to do those things safely and with integrity.
A Fun Workout
Did we mention B3 is fun? It's fun, fast-paced and a really great workout.
B3 August - September
Our latest B3 launch is all about the twists! Twisting always feels better/more accessible during the hotter months when the body is already warm, so we are riding out that wave for sure! As summer winds down, twisting also provides an opportunity to get rid of what's no longer serving us so that we can make space for the new season ahead. We will talk about this theme more over the next few weeks.
With a class focused on twisting, it's no surprise that our focus pose is Side Crow, a pose that requires a deep twist to access. Stay tuned for a blog post and tutorial video explaining the variations and progressions of side crow.
Regarding the playlist, we understand everyone's musical tastes are different, so we've got a little bit of everything. This month's playlist features Tina Turner, Post Malone, Miranda Lambert and Kaleo, just to name a few. You can check out the full playlist on Apple Music Here.
Speaking of music, is there another platform you'd like to see this on? Let us know..
That's all for now, but stay tuned throughout the month as we share more information about B3 and other happenings around the community here on the blog. As always, feel free to contact us with questions and feedback.
