What is POSH?
P.O.S.H is an acronym for The Principles of Strength and Healing. The class is structured within a Hatha yoga sequence, designed to build strength, flexibility and tone the body. The healing is initiated by aligning focused intent, with safe movement principles, and the breath, creating the union (yoga). The musical playlists are also carefully created with an emphasis on the facilitation of the healing process.
POSH is an experience.
On a broader scale POSH is a lifestyle. We live our lives based on principles and values, compassion for self and others, principles of healthy living, care of the body, and mind. Without principles we lack integrity.
POSH is you, POSH is me, POSH is everything that WE aspire to be.
