We are working towards an advanced arm balance in this class. Despite that, this is an intermediate class, culminating in an advanced pose. We do a lot of hip and hamstring stretches to prepare to do the eight-limbed pose. There's also a nice balanced flow of standing poses and backbends. I encourage you to play! Enjoy!
If you're looking to deepen your backbend practice or understand backbends more deeply, look no further! We warm up the spine, open the shoulders, chest, upper back, quadriceps and hip flexors and play with all kinds of backbends! King Arthur makes an appearance, and you might find yourself in kapotasana or kapotasana prep! Regardless of where you end up, backbending practices have a unique energy! They are great for times when you need a boost of confidence, or are working with depression. There is such a shift in energy when you focus on opening the front body and leading with your heart! Enjoy yogis! (This is intermediate/advanced, but if you listen to your body and back off when you need to, intermediate practitioners will be fine :)) Enjoy, yogis!

What is your favorite color?
Mine is orange, all shades of orange!
How many colors are there in nature? Look closely and you will see thousands of shades of every color, more than enough to fill a box of crayons! When we rush past everything outside, we don’t notice all of this variety. But when we are more mindful, we can slow down and look with curiosity.
Before playing this game, grab a box of crayons and an adult.
We will first warm up with nature-based poses like butterfly and tree pose. Then we are going to try to match the colors of the crayons to things in nature or inside our homes! This is an activity that you can do over and over again. It's a great way to connect with nature, and one another. Enjoy!
Hello, yogis! So happy to be with you in the garden! This is a well-rounded flow with extra love for the hips, hamstrings and glutes! Two blocks will be handy if you have them, or anything sturdy to "lift the floor up" if needed! Core strengthening and a little fun in crow pose along the way, monkey pose, lizard pose, a flipped out dog and so much more! Deep, mindful breathing throughout, so you release stress and tension and return to center. Let's play!
