Today, we travel through hill and dale, forest and freeway; twistin’ and turnin’ our way back to The Bay to arrive at Yoga Works-Larkspur for our anxiously awaited Vinyasa 2-3 class with Karyn Holland.

Entering the stunning spa-like space, we were greeted with a high-spirited welcome from this tight-knit yogi family.   Our YoYo eye’s were  poppin’ as  bhakti-flowin’ manager, June Katzen, led the grand tour of all three delicious yoga rooms and unsurpassed everything yogi space filled with chic attire, library of inspirin’ books, and cool yogi side dishes. Hangin’ in bliss on the luscious couches enjoyin’ the extensive tea bar, the comfy YoYo’s toyed, for just a second, with the idea of pracitin’ savasana for a hour or three in this dazzlin’ lap of luxury; but time had come for the unsuspecting YoYo’s to enter their “velvet hammer” of a class.

Karyn opened this “good vibe” flow with a message of, “YES” to opportunity in our lives, “yes” in our hearts and most definitely “yes” in our practice. The unhurried steady pace and composed demeanor of our trickster teacher ensured the YoYo’s remain unaware that every muscle was being worked to its absolute max. Her precise, easy-to-follow coaching guaranteed these committed yogis used every hidden sinew correctly and kept strength of heart and mind to tackle even unfamiliar asanas.  It was easy to see that this fortunate class was being expertly guided by this caring teacher that loves to spread the positive message of “YES”.

Takin’ our cue from our optimistic guide, we said “Yes” to the Ru, the wise, kind, ol’, wantin’ to romp, grandfather cocker spaniel, who thought Stinson Beach would be a perfect spot to fill every crevasse with powdery sand, and check out the herd of seals playfully jumpin’ in the sea.  While the YoYo’s walked out our worked out bodies, we inhaled the serene sounds and exhaled the ginormous amounts of sand that The Ru felt compelled to shake in our smilin’ faces while blithely testin’ our new found yoga poses… compliments of our “most positive” class at Yoga Works- Larkspur.
