Inviting Grace with Tiffany Cruikshank at The Bali Spirit Festival.
Invite grace into your life with dedication and integrity in your yoga practice.
“When we start to find that integrity we find grace. When we allow ourselves to soften and be supported in that pulsation of life and body we tap into the subtleties and step into our truth.”
~ Tiffany Cruikshank
International yoga superstar Tiffany Cruikshank opened The 7th Annual Bali Spirit Festival with characteristic spunk, style and vigor. Her Awaken Your Core Potential spiced up the morning with an invigorating, unique vinyasa flow. Tiffany’s movement as medicine mantra and lighthearted attention to alignment kicked things off with a bang.
Tiffany gently led us into a vigorous vinyasa flow. She insists on isolating and training the core by relaxing the neck and becoming aware of the transverse abdominal muscle. This muscle is like a string around the middle of the core at the level of the bellybutton. If we can gently synch in the string around the midline it makes the rib cage more buoyant.
Tiffany closed the class reflecting on our ability to be committed with integrity to our bigger purpose in life. Her words of wisdom resonated with the sweaty global Bali Spirit yogis. They found their way into Savasana a bit perplexed at the rapid and unique flow they had just experienced.
