This is like Triangle Pose, just imagine your lifted foot is pressed against the back wall. Your lower hip is externally rotated, your standing leg is engaged, your core is strong, and you can open up your heart and breathe. The extended leg is long and strong, the top thigh spins toward the space behind you, and your foot is actively flexed with toes spread.
Join Dhaujee in this tutorial style offering that takes it back to the basics. We take a moment to discuss alignment cues in some of our most visited postures. Find new spaces to open, adjust and enter postures in a safe and strong way. Enjoy!
A well-rounded slow flow with a focus on opening your hips, hamstrings, and quads. These physical areas are often most associated with emotions that may need to be released. Let’s breathe, move and play our way to a better day by getting things unstuck.
I give lots of options to help you take good care of yourself while still inviting you to push your personal edge.
Oh my gosh, if you're looking for stress relief, here you go! This is a slow flow/deep stretch class that begins with alternate nostril breathing and leads to some really sweet and deep hip, shoulder and hamstring opening. Intended to calm your nervous system and open every major muscle group, you will work in this practice and you will sweat, but the emphasis is on releasing tension and breathing deeply. Sending love to all, please be good to yourselves and choose the practices you need from day-to-day.
We process emotions in the heart and store them in the hips. In this hatha inspired flow, we take it slow and work through the emotional kinks we may be hiding. We spend time in some of our favorite challenge poses like bound half moon and extended side angle that invigorate both the hips and heart. A strong breath carries us through it all! After we've built the heat standing, we slow it down with a floor sequence offering long, releasing holds. Enjoy this challenging practice, your hips and heart will appreciate it!
A well-balanced flow intended to support you with connecting to your authentic self! You can expect a gentle warm up, sun salutations, warrior poses, standing balance, heart and hip opening, spinal twists and of course savasana. Enjoy, yogis!
Practice begins with a 3-minute talk about the importance of self-compassion. If you are a Type A perfectionist by default and live with a loud inner critic, my goodness this is especially for you! Please set the intention to replace any negative inner talk with a voice that roots you on as we move and breathe and make shapes together! We give lots of love to the hips, hamstrings and shoulders, fire up the core and then give extra love to the hips when we're warm. This is a feel-good flow that's all about cultivating compassion and developing a loving and respectful relationship with your body, and perfect for days when you have a moderate amount of energy! Once we can be compassionate with ourselves, we can do that for other people with a different kind of insight.
For those days when you're shorter on time, this is a practice that will get you grounded, present and attuned to sensation early. Once you're present you can expect lots of deep, conscious breathing, and after a mindful beginning we will pick up the pace with some series C variations to get your heart pumping, build some heat and open the hips, shoulders and hamstrings. We fire up the core and open up the heart in backbends, and end in a nice pigeon pose that leads us into a twist, and then savasana. Guaranteed to shift your energy, clear your mind and open up every major muscle group!
A well-rounded journey that starts with some gentle forward folds and twists, builds steadily through some standing balances and core work, and finishes strong with a few playful inversions and arm balances... enjoy!
