A meditation all about being present! This quick and simple practice is great when you feel lost in your headspace and short on time. In this "countdown meditation" we tap into the 5 senses to bring our consciousness outward and pause the internal dialogue. Accessible for all ages and perfect for a family moment of mindfulness!
This is a deep back-bending, heart-opening flow! Expect lots of shoulder, chest and upper-back opening, love for the psoas, hip flexors, quads and hamstrings, standing balance, twists, core strengthening, arm balances and inversions! When we are sweaty I will offer you options for kapotasana prep and drop-backs. We start this practice with grounding and breath and after a deeply heart-opening practice, I will lead you in yoga nidra in savasana. Intermeditae students are welcome - I give building blocks and options for everything along the way, just make sure you listen to your body and treat it with respect and compassion! This is a fabulous practice for days when you have a good amount of energy, and times when you feel you need a boost in courage or are struggling with situational depression. This will open you right up!
We're going to have all kinds of fun in this practice! Think crow pose, baby crow pose, one-legged crow pose, forearm stand, handstand and more...but all of this is coming right from our core! So we are going to get centered and then we will fly! A couple of blocks would be handy. Enjoy, yogis, and let me know if you have requests!
You are what you seek! You have to create the energy from within to receive that energy from around you. If you want love, you have to be loving. If you want to be happy you have to find the joy inside and put it out there! If you want things to work out you have to be willing to work! Are you ready? Let's do this!
Well-defined, simple exercises that you can do with or without a set of ankle weights. We introduce a lot of attitude pulses to 'turn on' the hip rotators, adductors, and IT bands.
You can expect clear sequencing, but also to be challenged by deliberate movement. See you at the barre!
