The classic seated posture, sukhasana or easy pose is a great place to begin to open your hips, and work on lengthening your spine. A blanket may be helpful if you carry tension in the hips, you may also like to put blankets underneath each knee for support.

The shift to working virtually has undoubtedly taken a toll on our minds and bodies. This mini practice is dedicated to releasing the tension we hold in our spine and arms from sitting at our computers all day. The specific focus is between the cervical and thoracic spine (from your neck to your ribcage) as well as the shoulders and wrists. Take 15 minutes at your desk, in your bed or on your mat to release some tension and protect your neck!

A meditation all about being present! This quick and simple practice is great when you feel lost in your headspace and short on time.

Yoga Nidra is translated as yogic sleep. Ideally, this is the state we find ourselves in when we surrender in savasana. We've moved all this energy around while practicing, and now we can find ourselves in a state of conscious awareness. Not quite awake, not quite asleep...right in that sweet space of just being. For many people though, the moment the body stops moving, the mind wants to start racing again. You can use this practice at the end of any and every session on the site to help you find the deepest savasana ever. You can also use this as a stand-alone meditation practice anytime you want to quiet your mind and calm your nervous system. Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation and a beautiful practice anytime you experience stress, anxiety, depression or insomnia. It has also been shown to help with PTSD. Enjoy this deep state of rest yogis <3
