kundalini yoga & the practice
led by Jordan Faye Block
The Practice is a blend of Hatha, Tantra, & Kundalini traditions.
This class is very special, this practice is amazing and it is for everyone. At Thrive Atelier, The Practice is being taught by Jordan Faye Block, who has studied & trained closely with Martha McAlpine (500 E–RYT) out of YogaWorks Baltimore over the last 2+ years. She loves the energy, the feelings of confidence and clarity that the practice has brought to her life. With Martha's guidance, she is now teaching her monthly sequences, two to three times a week in the new studio. Ms. Block has also studied with Kia Miller to receive her 200 hr Radiant Body Yoga Teacher Certification (focusing on Kundalini & Vinyasa with Kia) at the Himalayan Institute. Between these two women and their trainings she is delighted to bring more energetic kundalini yoga to Baltimore, Maryland.
The Practice was created by Martha McAlpine. Martha teaches this practice weekly at three YogaWorks Studios in Baltimore, under the YW's class called Kundalini, but as those of us who have experienced the magic of her classes know – it is more than your typical kundalini class. "If it wasn't for Martha, I wouldn't have fallen in love with yoga in Baltimore as I have over the last several years." – Jordan
In Martha's words regarding the practice – "These classes are available for everyone. The postures or gestures can be modified to suit all abilities and the practice remains just as effective. Feel free to talk with me at the start if you feel you need guidance. Every class is begun from the most modified version and build from there. Just practice at the skill level that best serves you. If we hold a gesture too long for you, stop... Rest. Respect your body. Return when you are ready. Remember, this is a practice to be done again and again. Strength and stamina will come over time if you are diligent."
