What to expect: a gentle warm up that starts with cat/cow, down-dog, and plank and builds into sun salutations and a vigorous standing flow, and ends with a cool down of gentle back-bending and hip opening. Listen to your body and practice compassion for yourself! Enjoy, yogis!
Be Where You Are. Love Who You Are.
Being present is extremely elusive. We have brief glimpses of it, like looking at stars in a dark sky. Eventually our mind is focusing on the past or future, and the moment of NOW is lost.
Can you be exactly where you are with acceptance? Can you be compassionate with yourself when you fall and pick yourself up?
We will explore these themes of patience, presence and curiosity as we move into this hour long practice together.
Be easy with yourself. You may lose your balance and/or your focus. Know that you can always find your way back to presence and self-acceptance.
Love and Peace to all,
A slower-paced basic vinyasa flow for runners with some stops along the way to talk modifications. If you’re looking to check in on some basic alignment and feeling like your hips and hamstrings are holding you back from your flow, this gentle practice with a little extra hip opening is a great place to start. Standing poses including Warrior II, Extended Side Angle and Triangle Pose open up the hips and prep you for some hip and hamstring opening at the end. Give yourself a chance to check in with your body, breathe and stretch.
This is a class meant to be practiced at night time.
Sometimes it can be hard to slow down after a fun day! Yoga and meditation can help us wind down our minds and our bodies, and help us get ready for a good night's sleep. We will start with getting all the wiggles out and end in a calming, mindful body scan. You can even do this class on your bed. Sweet dreams!
In this class, we start on our backs. We do some hamstring and psoas stretching, core work, and strengthening. From there we move on to sun salutations and standing poses. We mirror some poses on our feet that we did laying down, and challenge our balance and flexibility. A centering class that will increase strength and flexibility.
This is an energizing flow that guides you through deep breathing, intention-setting, sun salutations, warrior standing poses, arm balancing, inversions, heart and hip opening, forward folds, spinal twists, and a lovely savasana at the end. Practice quieting your monkey mind as you stay present to your body and breath. Enjoy, yogis!
