An excellent backbend for opening the muscles, fascia and tissue in the shoulders, and across the front of the chest. Use the strength of your legs to safely open your heart. And having an open heart as we move through this world is a good and necessary thing.
Perfect for days when you have a moderate amount of energy (enough for 6-minute abs and some good flow!) along with the desire to breathe, decompress and do some really deep stretching once we've built that heat! If you need to release your shoulders, upper back and hips, there are serious opportunities to do that! A shoulder sequence on the floor may lead to deeper-than-usual backbends, and frog pose...well, you know how frog pose can be! Enjoy, yogis!

This practice is a slow flow designed to gently release physical and emotional tensions around the heart. You can expect longer, slower holds in shoulder, upper back and chest openers.

Have an hour to get your sweat on AND quiet your mind and open your heart? Then this is for you! We build heat quickly and use the heat to open the shoulders, hips and hamstrings, fire up the core and play with all kinds of balance. A little talk about knowing yourself, feeling your feelings and opening to reality as it is, which sometimes involves releasing an old vision and opening to a new one.
This is a well rounded flow class that doesn't leave anything unattended to! I will guide you to PAY ATTENTION to instructions, your breath and most importantly checking in with how you FEEEEEEEEEEEEL. The physical practice is a great place to develop awareness and mindfulness. So slow down, work hard and jump on the healing transformation train!
