Steven walks into the room and gently yet playfully instructs you to get into downward dog, getting the flow started from the get go. Strap yourself in, ladies and gents, because it is quite a ride. This is a vigorous class geared toward the athletic student, but fear not: Safety is Steven's first priority. Expect to flow back and forth through more chaturangas than you thought your body could handle in one day. But by the time you feel like you might not be able do another vinyasa – sweat literally pouring down your body, dripping from your eyes and even your ankles – Steven gives you a break. He explains that it’s giving your body breaks during a workout can actually increase the amount of calories you burn in an hour. Well, OK then, Steve, bring on the breaks! But don’t expect the breaks to last too long – before you know it, you are back into a new sequence, sweating now to the point of pruned fingertips.
