This is Jared’s signature open level vinyasa class. Jared McCann Vinyasa classes aim to break attachments, create energy, vitality, and purify both mind and body. Breathing becomes a meditation and is utilized to create space from the inside out. Jared’s class blends many styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Bikram, Iyengar, Forrest, and Dharma yoga. JM Vinyasa bridges gaps in yoga traditions, and creates a practice that is modern, accessible, and allows practitioners to learn from all styles. Every class includes standing postures, hip openers, backbends, forward bends, twists, and inversions. Classes can also include mantra, pranayama, kriya or meditation. All levels are welcome.
Workshop: Hips and Forward Folds
This workshop will explain Mula Bandha, Swadisthana Bandha, and Uddiyana Bandha which are energy locks in the pelvis and lower abdomen. Understanding these techniques help to release hamstrings, lower back, and hips - bringing ease into forward folding postures. We will also bring attention to the feet and variations of Pada Bandha (foot lock), and Janu Bandha (knee lock) which creates ease and stability in forward folds.The workshop will begin with a vinyasa sequence covering standing poses and then transition into different forward bending and hip opening asanas. All levels welcome.
This 2 hour workshop focuses on backbending techniques designed to heal, open, and strengthen your entire spine.
The workshop begins with a strong vinyasa sequence that includes abdominal exercises, standing postures, and inversions. After the warm up, we will flow into classical backbending postures with an interactive lecture focusing on alignment and technique. Jared will focus on explaining bandhas (energy locks) in the pelvis and abdomen to enhance stability and awareness. We will also discuss the function of hips, shoulders, abdominals, and limbs in creating a strong and supported backbending practice. The workshop ends with exercises that unwind the spine, savasana, and meditation.
This class is designed for all levels. Beginners are welcome!
Inversions have numerous benefits for emotional, physical, and mental health. They recirculate blood, lymph, and spinal fluids in the body, while bringing strength and awareness to the arms and shoulders. Practicing inversions brings peace of mind through enhanced balance and focus and many yogis consider them to be the fountain of youth. They also develop mental clarity for sharpness through increased blood circulation and oxygen to the brain. The workshop will begin with a vinyasa style flow class to warm up the body and transition into learning correct hand, arm, and shoulder placement to create a strong foundation for a safe inversion practice. Learn proper technique and neck safety to practice shoulder stand, headstand, forearm stand, and handstand and overcome the fear of being upside down. This workshop is great for all levels of yoga practitioner.
