A beautiful hip opener and release for the low back if your knees allow. Have a block and/or some blankets handy if possible. If you feel any strain in your knees at all, please go to the pose, "Thread the Needle".
A mindful medley of core strengthening, hip and hamstring stretching and standing balance postures. Great for when you have a wrist or arm injury, or when you just want a not-too-strenuous-but-not-too-easy practice to help you reset and recharge... Enjoy!
Perfect for days when you have moderate energy and are looking for just enough heat to open everything up, connect to your breath, and give some extra love to your hips and hamstrings. Once we have some good heat going, you'll have chances to play with skandasana and half frog, firefly pose, double pigeon, a wide straddle handstand and all kinds of building blocks depending on how your body is feeling. You can turn the heat up or down with restorative options for backbends and inversions. Just move, breathe and trust that you'll be feeling good very soon!
If you're looking for an energizing, creative flow with a sprinkling of yoga sculpt here and there, tons of hip opening and core strengthening, and some fun with finding bandhas in your handstands, then you've come to the right class :) Intermediate students are welcome, I ALWAYS offer building blocks and variations, just please make sure you listen to your body and work smart! Enjoy yogis!
This is a steady, heat-building flow where we go deeper and deeper into the hips but we keep it casual. We're not trying to get anywhere, we're just enjoying the experience of practicing together, listening intently to what our bodies have to tell us, and seeing what unfolds. This is an intermediate flow, but we do play with some advanced poses without any pressure whatsoever, and with modifications offered so you can turn the heat up or down!
A post-run stretch designed to let you make it a shorter (20 min) or longer (40 min) stretch session depending on your preference. We spend plenty of time on the hips and hamstrings with lots of forward folds and pigeon variations, and there are options for a deep psoas stretch, an extra dose of hip opening and a restorative backbend if you have the time. Enjoy, yogis runners!
The pace is slow and steady so there's plenty of time to feel things deeply. This is a great practice if you're looking for something to help you hone your focus, breathe with intention, and open every major muscle group. There is core strengthening and there are opportunities for arm balances and inversions, but you are also welcome to turn the heat down if you need to! Enjoy, yogis! And apologies for the unedited beginning where we are joking around, but I figure a little behind-the scenes once in awhile is okay and this was the last class we filmed before the pandemic so I couldn't bear to delete it! :)
In the class we target the hips and hamstrings, these are the areas we tend to store stress and tension and it can be difficult to get into the fascia and smaller muscles around theses areas , so prepare to breathe deeply and let go of this unnecessary tension! You will feel amazing when you do!
A sweaty class with a lot of core strength work and an emphasis on working on your own experience and with your own challenges. Down dog or child’s pose? Both are the right answer, but there are plenty of opportunities here to work hard with a dancing warrior flow and arm balance opportunities. There’s also a long, sweet and relaxing end to class with a triple dose of hip opening featuring janu sirsasana, double pigeon, and baddha konasana, as well as some heart opening opportunities with back bends and twists.
