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!
Have an hour to get your sweat on AND quiet your mind and open your heart? Then this is for you! We build heat quickly and use the heat to open the shoulders, hips and hamstrings, fire up the core and play with all kinds of balance. A little talk about knowing yourself, feeling your feelings and opening to reality as it is, which sometimes involves releasing an old vision and opening to a new one.
Tons of heart and hamstring opening, core strengthening and inverting in this session, where we talk about growth opportunities, and the always-important question: Who am I going to be in this situation?
The pace is slow and steady, but we go deep. You'll want a nice amount of energy for this one as we build heat and head into the upper back and chest with intention and focus, and give attention to the hamstrings and back-body as well so you leave your mat feeling centered and balanced. We work our way toward forearm stand, so please have a strap and block handy. The conversation is about releasing the picture in your head of How Things Should Be, and opening your heart to how things are. Sometimes you have to release one vision to make space for the adventure life has in store for you, which takes trust and bravery. Ready to open?
Don't let fear stop you from saying the things that need to be said, and doing the things that need to be done. Stoke your inner flame, and think alchemy: How can I transform intense feelings into productive action? We open the hips, hamstrings, and heart, fire up the core, play with arm balances and inversions, and move right into that fire. Ready? Time to root down and rise up.
Get ready to tap into your yogi super powers in this challenging practice that will leave you feeling recharged and ready to face the day! You can tone it down or amp it up in this multi-level class designed for ALL to enjoy! :)
Need your yoga fix but pressed for time? Try this short and sweet practice to get your blood pumping and your prana flowing. I promise you will not be disappointed that you took this time for YOU !! And yes we will get upside down to help shift your perspective because sometimes life is just better when we are inverted:)
A balance of strength building and flexibility! Fire up your core and use that heat to ease deeper into hanumanasana, the monkey pose more commonly known as the splits. Grab a couple blocks (firm pillows work too) and explore your edge!
Hips, hamstrings, shoulders and blanket abs are the focus, along with approaching your fear and working with it, and developing a breathing practice for those challenging moments in life (including the ones that happen when Waze sends you in circles for twenty minutes on a long car ride, and your daughter has to pee :)) Work it on the mat, so it shows up for you in the world.
