One of our favorite arm balances at Yogis Anonymous! This pose requires core and upper body strength, and open hips, hamstrings and shoulders, along with a sense of adventure (or a willingness to kiss your mat!) Get the basics down with this tutorial and then let's fly together with some of the classes below that feature this pose!
Ready to work it?
Here are some classes featuring Pose Dedicated to the Sage Koundinya II.
The focus of this flow class is the core and twists.
We do some stretching and strengthening on the floor, moving up to the feet. Once standing we do a few rounds of Uddiyana Bandha, a navel lock. This is great for discovering and toning the core.
Next we flow with some sun salutations, a bit more core work and standing poses. We breathe our way toward some arm balances as an extension of base poses. Even if you don't get up in bakasana or revolved koundinyasana, you will be setting the foundation for them
with squats and twists. Enjoy!
Yogis, if you're looking to shift your perspective, please grab two blocks and follow me! We're going to deeply open the hips, shoulders and hamstrings so we can play with arm balances including koundinyasana 2 and inversions including many different headstand variations (please be sure your neck feels good and you have a long-term headstand practice if you do the variations!) Enjoy!
Breathe into brightness, step into your shine, you are the Sun in drag! This uplifting sequence explores playful shapes like Lucky Lakshmi, Hare Krishna and The Thinker, waking up the entire body and spirit.
Grab two blocks and a blanket and let's play! This is a heart-opening flow that focuses on balance in creative ways. Get ready to discover the tops of your feet and a camel pose that defies gravity! Enjoy, yogis!
Oh hello yogis! If you're looking for a deep hip and hamstring opening flow with lots of core work, arm balances and inversions, here you go! Lots of heat-building and mindful sequencing so you're prepared to play with poses like bird of paradise, koundinyasana 2, compass pose, astavakrasana, wide straddles in tripod headstand and handstand, and some deep poses that dive into those hips once we're warm. Guided meditation in Savasana xx
Intermediate yogis welcome, please listen to your body!
Gather yourself up and create peace inside so you can send peace to those in need...even when you are one of those in need! We build heat and play with arm balances and inversions and options to play with transitions that could take you from koundinyasana into ganda bherundasana if you're feeling it! 2 blocks and your intention to create a peaceful inner world are all we need to get going.
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!
Great for days when you have a good amount of energy but maybe not your maximum amount! Deeply open the hips, hamstrings and shoulders, fire up the core, play on your hands, open your heart and walk away from your mat feeling great. Sound good? Let's do this!
Hello, friends! If you're looking for an hour-long fun flow that gets your heart pumping, builds some nice heat and targets your hips...you've come to the right place! We have core strengthening along the way, arm balancing and inverting. The focus is on hip-opening and once we're really warm, I'll give you some options to take your bound angle pose (and your hips) to the next level. A block will be handy! Enjoy :)
