    • learn to “float” based on the method of vinyasa krama
    • use backbends to encourage opening of the heart in the physical, emotional and spiritual body
    • develop a basic understanding of the Bhagavad Gita and the Yoga Sutras, and come to understand the role they play on the path of yoga
