New Yoga for Climbers Class at Ironworks
Berkeley Ironworks will be starting a new class at the end of the month- a yoga for climbers class. Rulick Bilorusets is an urban yogi in the San Francisco Bay Area. Being influenced by many traditions, Rulick teaches a dynamic style of yoga, emphasizing the qualities of awareness and meditation in the practice. Ever committed to the healing and nurturing sides of yoga, Rulick helps his students to discover their limits and guide them into the unknown. Being a climber and back-country skier, Rulick sees benefits from applying both the physical and mental aspects of yoga practice to these “extreme” hobbies. Rulick’s message is simple: stay present, strengthen your body, and sharpen your mind.
Drawing from his Iyengar inspired teacher training at Piedmont Yoga Studio, Rulick structures his Wednesday class around body alignment and breath work. He explains the benefits and origins of the poses, taking his students through gentle vinyasa. This class is suitable for the beginners and intermediate practitioners.
Building upon the practice of yoga flow, Rulick teaches a more rigorous class on Thursday. The class is designed with the climbing community in mind. Shoulder stretches and chest openers are a must. Core strengthening and arm balances are top priority. You can take this class even if you have never done yoga before. Your body needs to be in a good shape to keep up with the flow.
Rulick's class will be Thursday nights at 7:45PM to 9PM. Stop by Berkeley Ironworks and check out one of Touchstone's great yoga classes.
