Dive deep into the hips in this fiery flow. Let go of the emotional stress that's held in the body's largest joint by stretching into deep malasanas and sinking into juicy lizard poses, all while building heat and strength. Connect to your body and move intuitively. There will be an opportunity to float on your hands in Bhujapidasana, open up your heart in camel, fire up your core in navasana, and of course melt the outside world away in forward folds. Two blocks recommended but not required.
The theme today is jealousy versus inspiration. When you see someone accomplish something you'd like to accomplish, do you feel happy for them or jealous? Do you celebrate for that person or feel smaller yourself? When we worry there isn't enough for us, we're coming from fear. When we can be expansive and know that no one can take our place in the sun, we're coming from an open place, and that feels so much better. Open your heart, hips, shoulders, hamstrings and mind, and strengthen your core as we free ourselves from fear!
Wanna feel great right now? Me, too! Grab your mat and let's open up the hips deeply (think marichyasana, lotus and kurmasana variations), target your shoulders, hamstrings and side body, do some nice twisting and fiery core strengthening, connect to your breath, bring yourself to center, open your heart, turn your world upside down, and ultimately know yourself better so that when you head out into the world, you can be aware of what you're bringing to every situation!
This is a very chill practice perfect for yogis at the end of their pregnancy or simply on a day when you feel fatigued and stressed out. We will breathe through physical tension while working with a mantra and/or intention to help get your mind focused!
If you are a beginner or feel a little off balance, take your standing practice to the wall. It gives you extra feedback, courage and strength. The wall helps you feel your spinal alignment. Its support gives you the courage to be bold in your balance poses. Pressing into the wall creates a closed chain of leverage that helps build extra strength. It's also sweet for the finishing poses, using your feet on the wall to get just the right amount of release and relaxation after a simple, strong standing practice. Enjoy the balance of working hard and relaxing deeply in this session!

This practice is inspired by the tale about how Vishnu manifested as Narasimha, then had to be talked down out of his bloodthirsty rage by Shiva as Sharabha, then finally sedated by the terrifying bird Ghanda Berunda--who happens to be our peak pose. High Hindu Drama!
Sitali Pranayam calms, and cools you off if you are in a hot environment or of a fiery temprament ; ) The flow builds slowly, but prepares you thoroughly for some special asymmetrical inversions/arm-balance variations and some of the mythological characters mentioned above!
This practice helps you find balance at all levels of your experience - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Let go of the to do list of the day, release any expectations you have of your practice and relax into the present moment. Flow with positive intention through sun salutations, warrior poses, inversions, heart and hip openers, and forward folds. Enjoy a final surrender in savasana. Namaste, Yogis!
This well rounded 30 minute vinyasa flow class will take you through a series of sun salutations, standing poses, heart and hip openers and a gentle cool down. Carve 30 minutes out of your day and feel connected and rejuvenated! Let your breath be your guide! Enjoy, yogis!
Yoga sculpt your full body. This class will both strengthen and lengthen for a total body burn. Variations of plank, chair, crescent and bridge pose will create the heat that tones while twists and folds provide feel-good length. Expect deep twists that will prepare you for a side crow balance all while moving and breathing into a stronger and more stable you.
In a sense, every day could be New Year's Day. This practice is designed to help cut attachments and clear out old, stagnant energy in order to write a fresh, new chapter and move forward with more freedom and LIGHTNESS!
Kundalini Kriyas help turn up the heat, move prana, and stimulate the root chakra to get us warmed up for a twisty-detoxifying Lotus Flow.
