Gypsy Yoga Flow is meant to bring practitioners to an edge and is based on the belief that when we push ourselves out of our comfort zones and walk the edge we truly live. Fusing vinyasa with the freedom and femininity of dance, the awareness of subtle energy work, weaving in positive affirmation and awareness of our internal dialogue, Gypsy Yoga flow is known for its intense strength building, strongly intention based nature, and deeply intuitive, liberating, circular movements.
She brings a deep reverence for the earth into her offerings and helps build conscious community around the planet. Ann leads transformational yoga journeys, workshops, and teacher trainings around the world.
Magnolia Rasak discovered yoga at the age of 16, and it was love at first class! Magnolia began teaching in 2002, and has traveled the world studying various styles of yoga including Hatha, Vinyasa, Kundalini, Tantra, and Prenatal. Her studies have guided her throughout India, Thailand, Mexico, Bali, and the U.S. She is drawn to the practice yoga not only for the asana (physical) benefits, but for the greater way of life that yoga encompasses. Non-violence, compassion, awareness, mindfulness, acceptance, and connection to all Beings. As a yoga instructor, Magnolia utilizes the physical as a means for deeper exploration into the subtle energies at play in our lives.
Magnolia aims to guide her students towards a state of physical strength, inner harmony, and self transformation through the practice of yoga. She encourages her students to cultivate a deeper awareness of their physical body, while simultaneously expanding the awareness between mind, body and spirit.
She calls her yoga classes Anahata Flow. Anahata translates to unhurt, unstruck, or unbeaten in Sanskrit. Anahata relates to the heart, and invites us into a state of balance, harmony and peace. Anahata Flow is deep and intentional vinyasa based practice that invites students to slow down, tune in, and connect to the present moment through mindful practice. Magnolia’s classes offer a balance of effort and ease, action and surrender. Her teachings are a practice of breath, asana, and moving meditation, that start and return to the space of the heart. “There is enough rush in the world, come to the mat to move and breathe with mindful awareness, and be moved into the space of the heart.” Magnolia
