Acro Yoga
Ashtanga

Ashtanga, a form of yoga dating back thousands of years, follows a set sequence of approximately 50 asanas (poses), linked together by breath and movement. Students will be led through a modified version of the Ashtanga sequence to fit within a 60-minute timeframe. As students become more familiar with the flow, a certain grace and ease develop, unlocking both the mind and body. This is a vigorous and athletic practice, building strength, flexibility, and stamina that translate well to climbing.

FAQs:

Is our class mysore or led?
Our LAX class is led by Taylor Friedlander.

What is the difference between mysore and led classes?

Mysore is a guided self practice class where students move through the sequence slowly, at their own pace, with individual supervision. Led is conducted by following the movements of the instructor. The instructor calls out the names of the poses, along with the counts and students move together with the instructor. The students follow the teachers pace and count which will help build both physical and mental strength.

What series is taught at Sender One?
The Ashtanga Primary Series (also called Yoga Chikitsa) is taught at Sender One. The series begins with forward bends, then twists and hip openers with a vinyasa between each asana (body posture or pose).

How many series are there in Asthanga?
There are six series; one primary series, one intermediate series, and four advanced series. Students often practice the Primary Series for several years before starting on poses from the Intermediate Series. The Primary Series is taught at Sender.

Is there variation in the Ashtanga sequences?
Traditionally, each Ashtanga class repeats the same sequence, taking 80-90 minutes to complete. Given that Sender's class is 60 minutes, Sender's Ashtanga class is modified to fit into a shorter timeframe, and so there may be some slight variation class to class, although the same sequence of poses will generally be followed.

Intro to Inversions and Arm Balances

Have you ever thought about changing your perspective and exploring the world upside down?! Or perhaps challenge your idea of what is possible?! This class will help yoga students practice trust, patience, confidence, and inner core strength to achieve various inversions and arm balances.

Inversions and arm balances are a collection of yoga poses that focus on balancing our weight on our hands and arms. We will begin by first going through a simple yoga flow and various drills to create warmth and prepare the body. From there we will progress into a peak inversion or arm balance pose. Each pose will be broken down and explained in depth. Props will be used to support and help students advance their practice. Get ready to build better balance, strengthen your body, and vitalize your mental focus!

Intro to Strength Training
This is a 60-minute series that occurs for 4 weeks, where every week includes core + gym etiquette tips. This course is designed for people with little or no strength training experience. You will be introduced to basic movement patterns and exercise variations, as well as learn how to use different gym equipment and build your own workout. After completing this course, students will be able to confidently use the fitness area to supplement their climbing at Sender One.

Please Note:
  • You have to sign up for all four dates.  Unfortunately there are no drop ins for certain classes so this is a one-month commitment.
  • This class is not included with Membership, but Members do recieve discounted pricing. 
Mat Pilates (All levels)

Mat Pilates is done on the floor using a yoga mat.  Mat Pilates utilizes breathing patterns, specific exercises performed in a controlled, precise manner, and your own body weight as the primary source of resistance to build core strength and spinal stability. Learn to activate your deep core muscles in each movement for optimal strength.  Pilates improves muscle tone, body balance, spinal support, low back health, sports performance, and body-mind awareness.  Pilates is a safe yet highly effective way to strengthen, stretch, and streamline your body and improve performance in your daily life.  Appropriate for all levels, modifications given for beginners, pregnancy, and physical limitations.

Strength and Stretch

This is a class geared towards creating balance, freedom, and tone in the body. We will build heat in the body through core, legs, and shoulder girdle stability work for 30 minutes. This will be followed by 30 minutes of deep guided stretching, putting our focus on releasing tension in the body as well as finding new length in our muscles. This is a great class to prepare your body for the day or as a pre-climb warm up!

Yin Yang Yoga (All Levels)

This is a deeply relaxing practice of supported poses, guided relaxation, yogic breathing, and an extended savasana (which means “final resting pose”). This meditative practice cultivates a necessary balance between one’s body and mind while also dissolving any physical and mental tension. This is a great choice for a student of any level who is seeking to reduce some of the harmful effects of stress.

Yoga Fundamentals (Beginner)

If you are new to the practice of yoga or coming back from a long break, this class will bring you back to the fundamentals. We will explore the basic stretches and sequences as we link breath to movement. This class will be gentle and informative to build to a stronger practice. Let’s begin your journey!

Yoga Sculpt (All Levels)

Yoga sculpt is an all levels, full-body workout that incorporates hand weights, cardio bursts, and core workouts combined with common yoga postures found in traditional yoga classes that will sculpt every muscle group. A perfect balance of mind and body, providing a calorie and fat burning workout and the many mental benefits of yoga. This upbeat and energetic class will get your heart pumping and blood flowing. You will work up a good sweat so make sure to bring a small towel and water.

VINYASA FLOW (VARIOUS LEVELS)

Vinyasa Flow Yoga is an evolving form of traditional Hatha yoga that focuses on integrating breath and movement, awareness and alignment, strength and flexibility. Through flowing sequences, students of our Vinyasa Flow classes enjoy a dynamic and energetic atmosphere, allowing them to reach new levels in their yogic practice. Vinyasa classes are best if you are already physically active, comfortable with the basic yoga postures, and appreciate a healthy sweat.

  • Vinyasa Flow 1/2 (Beginner)
  • Vinyasa Flow 2 (Intermediate)
  • Vinyasa Flow 2&3 (Advanced)

Kristine Calderon

Kristine's yoga journey started at her local gym. I got hooked after seeing so much growth in my practice, the positive changes in my physical body and mind. I then started an in-home practice where I did yoga challenges on Instagram and eventually went on to hosting a few challenges. I wanted to further expand my knowledge in yoga so I started practicing at CorePower, where I got my yoga sculpt and 200hr power yoga certifications. I then went on to teach Yoga Sculpt at Back For Yoga and CorePower, now I’m here and feel super humbled to be able to lead such a strong, enthusiastic group of climbers/yogis through their yoga practice.

Cat Hamilton

Cat grew up in the San Fernando Valley and was involved in a lot of athletics, but the high impact of traditional sports left her with recurring tendonitis that made even walking for extended periods of time a painful challenge without the help of orthotic braces. When Cat was in college, she learned about a procedure that could help her walk without the braces, and following the surgery she decided to start practicing yoga to improve her balance and mobility during her recovery. The mindful movement practice allowed her to build strength steadily and get in touch with an inner stillness in a way that she had never experienced before. She wanted to share with others what she had found in Yoga through teaching.

When completing her 200 HR teacher training in Vinyasa Yoga in 2013, one of the teacher trainers introduced her to AcroYoga and she fell in love all over again. It was all she wanted to do! The next step was obvious: become an AcroYoga teacher. Since completing her AcroYoga International teacher training in Rio De Janeiro in the Summer of 2018, Cat has been teaching classes and workshops all over the world, across 4 different continents, all while working full time in Post Production for reality and documentary TV. When she’s not sharing the practice internationally, or helping make broadcast television, she’s here at Sender One offering instruction in AcroYoga.

Katie Bay Woodbury

It was in her search for a physical practice that Katie began her journey with yoga. Her background in gymnastics and dance created an immediate connection to the asana practice, but it was the impact yoga had on calming and focusing the mind that really fostered her yoga passion.

Katie completed her 200hr training at Source of Yoga in Los Angeles with Caroline Kliebl and her 300hr training at Zuna Yoga in Bali with Everett Newell.

Her belief is that through yoga we gain strength and vitality, eliminate weakness and train the body and mind to overcome obstacles. When we become more conscious on the mat we take that awareness off of the mat. We start to treat ourselves and others with more respect, a loving energy, and an interconnected spirit.

Taylor Friedlander

Taylor took her first yoga class the summer before going to college and did not have a good time. “Why do people do this?” she wondered. At the same time, she noticed that afterward, her body was less tense and her mind was more clear. Intrigued by the effects of yoga, she continued going to classes, even though they weren’t very fun (at first). Slowly, yoga went from being a chore to something she enjoyed, and which she would eventually come to love. After about ten years of practice, she pursued her 200-hour and 300-hour teacher trainings in Mysore, India. Taylor now loves sharing the knowledge that was passed on to her and looks forward to helping you develop your practice.
