Learn how to get started doing crow pose, or bakasana, which is a great entry point to doing other arm balances and inversions. Watch the tutorial, then try the classes below which incorporate this pose into a complete practice.
Feeling tight in the chest and shoulders? This flow will help you to release stress carried in the the upper body. Warm up with a few Sun Salutations and then explore deep shoulder/chest stretches such as Anahatasana, Gomukhasana, and Ustrasana. Relax with a few twists and a supported bridge, then enjoy a restful Savasana! Namaste!
Feeling a moderate amount of energy but looking for a nice boost? Grab your mat and join us for lots of core strengthening, standing balance, twists, arm balances, backbends, inversions and all kinds of fun. After you build that heat and fire yourself up, we'll cool it down with some deep hip and hamstring openers. Walk away from your mat feeling open, free and energized.
This playful practice will give you a chance to find your balance, strength and focus. It's all about trying new things and not taking any of it too seriously! We move through variations on Warrior 3, Standing Splits, Half Moon, Bird of Paradise and more! Mellow out in a juicy pigeon stretch and enjoy your Savasana!
Well, I said this was going to be a 30-minute butt-whooper, but we were having so much fun it became a 42-minute butt-whooping session! If you want to rise, shine, energize, fire up your core, open your hips and shoulders and play with some funky arm balance mash-ups and transitions, then this is for you! This is a non-stop flow intended to get your heart pumping and your energy flowing. Once we're warm we'll play with a crow/koundinyasana mash-up and also have time to get upside down. This is a full, stand-alone practice, but you can pair it with a juicy deep stretch session if you have the time! Enjoy :)
Dig a little deeper into your shoulders, hips and core to learn how to take your crow pose to the next level. This practice is designed for practitioners of all levels, and offers challenges that you can come back to again and again to help build strength, mobility and overall body awareness. Enjoy!
Join me for a quick heat-building flow that will fire up your entire body and reconnect you to your breath! Emphasis is on strengthening the upper body and increasing core stability through playful yet approachable arm balancing options. Namaste yogis!
