About the Series

To float requires strength, control, and practice. This series is filled with drills, progressions, and floating-themed flows to help you develop the muscle memory, balance, and confidence to become weightless in your vinyasa practice.

Float contains eight classes. The six 15-20 minute lessons teach basic shapes and techniques to build strength and stability. They are the perfect length for those looking for instructional content that is both thorough and thoughtful. With drills that are modifiable and progressive in nature, these classes will grow with you as you repeat them over time. The foundational techniques practiced in the six classes are woven into the two remaining 60-minute flows. This allows you to play with and apply your growing skills in relevant sequences.

This series is ideal for multiple experience levels. Existing yogis who are just embarking on their inversion journey will reap amazing benefits from drills specifically designed to build the skills and confidence needed to float. More advanced practitioners who already have arm balances and inversions will deepen their physical practice and learn how to incorporate floating into their vinyasa.

instructor Instructor profile

Elvis was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and was raised in Wenatchee, Washington. For Elvis, yoga is an extension of his passion for movement and his love of the performing arts. Just as a performer must find strength and stability in the preparation leading to the final performance, Elvis finds the same joy in building the basics of an asana practice as a base to flourish into a beautiful expression of movement. He holds a high regard for the simplicity of the practice, for not only does everything you need lie in the basics, but it is also where beauty and clarity are found.

Elvis was trained by Annie Carpenter and aligns his instruction style and yoga values with the SmartFLOW methodology, which blends the discipline of classic yoga with anatomic awareness and fluid transitions.

He now resides in Seattle, where he owns and teaches at his yoga studio, Seattle Yoga Lounge, in the Greenlake neighborhood.
