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.
The theme of this class is present-moment awareness! How present are you feeling in your life from day-to-day? Do you feel like you're sucking the juice out of life? Are you able to be present with your own feelings and truly know yourself? When you eat, are you tasting your food? When you're in a conversation, are you listening, or waiting for your turn to speak? This practice will help! We move mindfully, and as we make shapes I will gently remind you to observe how these shapes feel in your body as you breathe. Set the intention to stay curious! If you can do this for yourself, you'll be able to do it for other people, too! It's such a gift to be able to listen deeply and respond with presence, awareness, love and patience.
Last week I let you know I was going to film a shorter practice and asked how long you wanted it to be! Most of you said somewhere around 30 minutes would be ideal, so here it is! We get a full-body practice here with special love for the spine (tons of creative cat-cow variations throughout, so you can expect more freedom in your neck and shoulders as we move), core strengthening, arm balancing and inverting! If you are struggling with anxiety right now, the trick is to work with it, get your body moving, breathe deeply, and release! Please let me know how you're feeling on the flip side! Love y'all <3
Don't enjoy crunches and sit-ups? Embedded in this flowy practice, we engage the core in creative ways. A strong core is imperative in balance poses, both on the feet and hands. In this class, we play with eagle, half-moon, side plank with variations, and crow pose. I instruct you to use the core moving in sun salutations, in and out of standing poses, and balancing. Enjoy!
What is one-legged crow pose 2, you ask? Grab your mat and I will show you! Along the way, we will open the shoulders, hips and hamstrings, strengthen the core and have a lot of fun. If you've taken my class before, you know we will work hard and laugh hard! Ready?
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!
This is a deep, hip-and-shoulder opening flow designed to help you soften, release and open. We do lots of heat-building along the way. You may find yourself flying like a crow or a firefly, standing on your head or your hands, or opening your hips, shoulders, hamstrings and chest in ways that surprise you. Try to release your attachment to the destination, and just feel the freedom in giving yourself permission to be right where you are!
Free your hips + shoulders in this strong flow! Let go of lingering stress and reconnect to your most peaceful self. Sun Salutations bring lots of sweaty heat into the body and standing poses create a sense of grounding. Hip and shoulder openers mixed throughout. We play with handstand and flying pigeon, then close with a relaxing Savasana. Namaste!
A class that's all about deep connection and celebrating our beautiful desire to connect with one another! Lots of opportunities to get centered with creative core work, fun standing splits variations to check in with your balance, and a flow that might or might not lead you to one-legged crow pose and bherundasana (chin stand)! Two blocks are helpful, yogis!
A balance-centered flow that connects you to your core from moment one! We start with breath-work and move into core work, and then we're off! A fun, challenging practice with lots of opportunities to play with your balance or play with your lack of balance! Everyone wins. Twists to wring yourself out, lots of shoulder and hamstring opening, and as always, deep conscious breathing. Enjoy, yogis!
