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.
Short on time but really need a full-body flow, grounding, centering, deep breathing, energizing, hip-opening, shoulder-relieving, core strengthening, arm-balancing, inverting deep practice? I totally get it. Some days are like that and when I have days where I have less than an hour on my mat, this is the kind of practice I do! Hope you enjoy, yogis!
A continuation of the foundations laid in Core Connection Part I, this practice goes deeper into the hips and hamstrings, and emphasizes back body core strength to help you find your way through both traditional and non-traditional ways into Koundinyasana. Prepare to dig deep... and enjoy!
This is an advanced class with intermediate options offered every step of the way. The most important thing to prioritize is deep and steady breath - that is the key to calming your nervous system and quieting your mind! You will deeply open your shoulders, chest and upper back, your hips, hamstrings and heart. You will fire up your core and play on your hands and upside down. Please listen to your body, choose the options that make sense today, and care for your tender heart. It's not easy right now, and taking care of yourself is key. Love to all xx
An energizing, creative intermediate-to-advanced flow that will get you fired up and grounded simultaneously. This is a full-body vinyasa flow with a little sculpt slipped in along the way, so you can count on strengthening your abs, arms and butt, but also on breathing deeply and consciously. Chances to play on your hands and upside down, and a sweet savasana which you will earn! Enjoy, yogis!
If you're looking fir an hour-long practice that has a good balance of energizing/heat-building and deep stress relief, look no further! We get to it pretty quickly with Series C variations to build heat, core strengthening to amp things up, hip opening to get ready for some fun standing balance poses, and arm balances and backbends before we cool things down. Lots of emphasis on paying attention to sensation and working with your own energy level. You can turn the heat up or down accordingly. This practice is not too much or too little, it is just right :)
Need to get moving? Get ready for a fun and creative flow with some sneaky but powerful core work, and some extra love for your butt! You'll feel this tomorrow and think of me (kindly I hope ;)) Fun warrior 3 variations, lots of love for your hips and shoulders, time upside down, deep breathing, a quiet mind and an open heart. Let's move it, move it together! 2 blocks may be handy!
We start with some grounding techniques and move into alternate nostril breathing. Once we're centered and ready to focus, we warm up with Series C variations and core strengthening. We give a lot of love to the hamstrings in this practice (you may want to have a strap handy) and do a lot of hip opening. We play with arm balances that include crow pose, side crow, firefly pose and bhujapidasana. Handstands are our inversion today, and there are building blocks for all levels. We end with some very sweet hip opening and a deep savasana. If you're looking for a mental and physical clearing out, this is for you! This practice is Intermediate/Advanced! Meaning it's an advanced practice but intermediate yogis are totally welcome and variations and building blocks are offered, just please listen to your body! Nothing should hurt.
Create patterns that are life affirming! Get ready to connect with your own prana (life force) and open up every which way! Have two blocks, a bolster, and a strap handy to play with King Arthur at the wall.
Lots of love for your hips in this flow that's all about using your practice to tune in and open up! Hamstring and shoulder-opening round things out, core strengthening gets you back to center, and playing on your hands is just good fun! A little arm balance mash-up, inversions at the wall or on your mat if you're ready, and whatever happens, the invitation to stay curious and practice patience and compassion! Feed what you want to grow ;) And this is an intermediate-to-advanced class so please listen to your body!
