A very deep hamstring opener, so please move slowly and thoughtfully. It shouldn't hurt! We start in ardha hanumanasana, and work our way toward full splits (but please note, nothing magical happens when you get your situation to the floor, so don't rush!) When you have the basic idea, get started on the classes below that work this pose into a full flow!
This is an advanced class but there are building blocks for every single advanced pose, so intermediate yogis are welcome! Get ready to breathe deeply and open your hips and hamstrings along with your shoulders and upper back, strengthen your core and get ready for hippie arm balances including koundinyasana 2 and grasshopper pose! Handstands with wide straddle variations are also in our mix today. And we end with Yoga Nidra in Savasana, so bliss awaits you! Take a little extra time for a deep savasana and see how great you feel after all that work!
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.
This is an advanced flow where we focus on finding freedom in the upper back, across the chest and in the shoulders so we can explore some deeper backbends including viparita dandasana. If you're experiencing tightness in your upper back, across your chest or in your shoulders, if you feel you may be carrying tension or that your breath is not flowing as freely as it might, if you have been feeling a little blue...this practice is an opportunity to open your heart and trust your process! You may want a strap and a couple of blocks along the way. Please listen to your body - you cannot force heart opening!
Want to feel like King or Queen of the world? This is your practice! We're going to warm up and move slowly toward one-legged king pigeon pose II and one-legged king pigeon splits! We're also going to play with one-legged scorpion upside down, and a possible chin stand with scorpion. Or none of that might happen, but you will still open and strengthen and you can just tell people to address you as Your Majesty! Adjust your crown, yogis, and let's have some fun!
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.
This is a full-body flow that has an equal balance of rooting down (think grounding and strengthening poses) and rising up (think standing balance and inversions). In order to fly, we have to have a solid foundation. Join Dhaujee for a flow that is sure to bring you into balance!
This is a full-body flow that targets mobility! As we build heat, we'll open every major muscle group more and more deeply with smart sequencing and variations offered every step of the way. Expect to deeply open your hips, hamstrings, quads, shoulders and upper back! Strengthen your core and play with a little balance. Enjoy, yogis!
Do you have 49 minutes to take care of your physical and mental well-being? Let's do it! This is an energizing, twisty flow with lots of love for your hamstrings, along with core strengthening, standing balance and arm balancing, inverting, shoulder-opening good times.
Lots of love for your hips in this flow that's all about using your practice to tune in and open up! Hamstring and shoulder-opening round things out, core strengthening gets you back to center, and playing on your hands is just good fun! A little arm balance mash-up, inversions at the wall or on your mat if you're ready, and whatever happens, the invitation to stay curious and practice patience and compassion! Feed what you want to grow ;) And this is an intermediate-to-advanced class so please listen to your body!
Attend to your nervous system! Treat your mat like a personal laboratory and see what's happening inside you today and what you need to find your center. This is a twisty, energizing flow that will help you wring out what isn't serving you and nourish the qualities you want to grow and offer up! We play with eagle pose and monkey pose right-side up and on our hands. A little tutorial about mulabandha and how to find it. Core strengthening, breath-of-fire, arm balances galore and many chances to turn the heat up or down. Enjoy, yogis! (Intermediate people welcome, just listen to your body xx)
