This is a mixed-level grounding hatha class where we focus on breath and sensation to quiet the mind, and make shapes mindfully to open the body. Great for days when you're feeling a bit anxious or overwhelmed. Detailed cues will give your mind plenty to focus on, and smart sequencing will leave you feeling good.
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.
This is a deep, stretchy class that is all about loving your body. Chill vibes as we move sweetly and open every major muscle group. Perfect for days when you want to calm your nervous system, connect to your breath, practice compassion for yourself, and get a really deep, sweet stretch.
A mindful, steady, gentle practice that targets shoulder, hip and hamstring-opening with a special emphasis on gently and safely
opening the heart space. Long holds and deep breathing round out the practice as we cool down and move into a restful savasana. Perfect for an end-of-day practice, or anytime you want something deep, steady and mindful to calm your nervous system and open every major muscle group. All levels welcome. Enjoy, yogis!
The theme of this class is present-moment awareness! How present are you feeling in your life from day-to-day? Do you feel like you're sucking the juice out of life? Are you able to be present with your own feelings and truly know yourself? When you eat, are you tasting your food? When you're in a conversation, are you listening, or waiting for your turn to speak? This practice will help! We move mindfully, and as we make shapes I will gently remind you to observe how these shapes feel in your body as you breathe. Set the intention to stay curious! If you can do this for yourself, you'll be able to do it for other people, too! It's such a gift to be able to listen deeply and respond with presence, awareness, love and patience.
A full-body flow for mamas who want to open and strengthen safely! We do lots of shoulder work with eagle arms in wide-legged forward folds and awesome side-body stretching. Prenatal side plank and dolphin are in the mix as are some nice deep hip openers. If you want to sweat and flow and open all the major muscle groups without having to worry about what's safe or not safe, just unroll your mat and let Cassie take care of you and your baby!
A slower pace gives us time to feel everything, and aren't we just being invited to feel everything these days?! Lots of creative half binds and full binds and hamstring opening, with options for all kinds of fun including bound revolved triangle and ardha chandrasana, baby grasshopper, and fun head-to-knee forward bend variations on our feet! A little dancers' pose and straddle press to forearm stand if you're feeling sparkly and a super deep savasana no matter what you do! Stay present, breathe deeply, and open to it all.
Sometimes you want a little more than a restorative practice, but not quite as much as an all out flow. This practice is for those times. Deep hip and hamstring opening are part of the magic. Breathe slowly, feel deeply and enjoy!
The practice opens with a bit of core work, but from there it's all about stretching. Mostly sitting, a few standing poses. No flow. Save your chaturangas for another day. We finish up with supta baddha konasana and reclined supported bound angle pose, before a gentle inversion and savasana. Chill out and stretch with this one. Enjoy! Lauren
